Understanding | Researching | Thinking
We are continuous learners with a keen interest in psychology, thinking models, emotional intelligence, negotiation and strategy. Rushmans boasts extensive business, marketing and operational experience, as well as decades of active learning and practical application. By prioritising time to apply creativity to strategy, we can unlock a more efficient outcome.
Unwrapping & Discussing
We stimulate discussion, gathering valuable insights. We often use Structured Visual Thinking™ and Multidisciplinary Thinking Models to unravel complex issues and give the principles the time and space to think. Working at the intersection of visual stimulus, spoken words and written text maximises the value to those responsible for making decisions and allows the team to develop strategies and communicate them effortlessly.
Designing / Agreeing Strategies and Plans
We create meaningful, collaborative and engaging programs that will be implemented and actually make a difference. Making plans based on critical insights is what it takes to build an intelligent, effective and adaptive solution. Having clear and agreed principles by being open, transparent and honest ensures that plans will work and last.
Making plans and strategies through collaboration and communication gives direct ownership to leaders and teams. Solutions need to be found together with those that will implement them to encourage accountability and longevity of a plan. At Rushmans we have a longstanding reputation for supporting plans and making the vision a reality. We call it 'Making It Real'.
