Personal Internet and Digital Navigation

Unlike Minds’ thought leadership here began with our work in 1996 on the first online learning environment in a collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Informed further through development of interface models based upon cybernetic principles and their application for a range of platforms and businesses in Europe and Japan.

Visioning and strategy development

We can challenge current thinking on the vision for an organisation or provoke new ideas. Our associate network provides a diverse range of perspectives on the world and we leverage this in our visioning activities with clients. We believe that a vision without a strategy is but an hallucination so we work with clients to help determine how the vision can be realised. This includes identifying options for building ‘extended enterprises’ that bind in strong partner relationships based upon aligned interests.

Specialist consulting

All associates are specialists in one or more fields and the Unlike Minds capability network is therefore able to provide a wide range of support services from either individual or teams depending upon client requirements.

Specialist programmes


We believe that every school has the potential to develop, to improve. Unlike Minds has a wide range of programmes, partners and associates addressing teaching and learning, leadership and management, school and community and technologies for learning. Click the link for an outline of programmes.


Breakthrough performance environments

While no organisation can guarantee breakthroughs, there are measures that can be taken to improve the chances of breakthrough performance occurring. Unlike Minds can introduce you to the ‘5P’ model that helps focus on those factors that most influence breakthrough performance environments.


Ecosystem and Extended Enterprise

All organisations exist in an ecosystem, an economic neighbourhood that we have little or no control over. An extended enterprise however is another matter. This is the group of organisations that comes together from the ecosystem to address a particular challenge or opportunity and can be transient or long-lived. We can identify extended enterprise opportunities for organisations and assist with their formation – including advising on governance conditions that ensure everyone’s aligned.


Holistic Enterprise

In the current economic climate it’s more important than it ever was to make sure that not only are you measuring the right things (because you get what you measure), but that you have the best perspective possible on what sustainable success looks like. The holistic enterprise model looks at public, private and third sector perspectives and helps organisations to shift their vision to a broader, more collaborative and collegiate base.


Enabling transition

Drawn from reflections on the work of Prof. Peter Kawalek (University of Manchester Business School), we have evolved models for looking at ‘model 1’ to ‘model 2’ transition, what different population types there are and how you can effect change. These models can be used as a stimulus for boards and senior teams who need to reflect on new socio-economic models and how to transition to a desired state in a secure and sustainable way.
