Star Teams

Transform your Business with STAR TEAMS

The world is changing faster than at any previous time in history.

Traditional approaches are failing, and organisations are not keeping up.

The management style of the 20th century no longer serves us.

We need to evolve rapidly or die.

“The world is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow.”

Rupert Murdoch

Businesses face unprecedented innovation and disruption in markets at a staggering pace across all sectors. Innovations improve products or services in ways that the market neither demands nor expects but become rapidly recognised as the optimum consumer choice. Moreover, these innovations cross all boundaries and disciplines.

“70% of all Change Management efforts in all organisations fail to achieve their desired results.” 

McKinsey & Company

Digital Transformation Fails

“7 out of 8 digital transformations fail.”- 


Innovation Labs Fail According to The Village of Useful, big brands like Coca-Cola, British Airways, and Disney have closed or downsized innovation teams in the last few years, with 90% of innovation labs considered a failure.

STAR TEAMS Outperform Traditional Top-Down Management by a Factor of Four or More

To achieve strategic competitive advantage in the 21st Century, we need to use a new and proven approach that delivers superior outcomes. 

STAR TEAMS are ‘transdisciplinary’, which combine many disciplines into a coherent whole. The STAR TEAMS model allows members to contribute their knowledge and expertise to provide different perspectives, but efforts are collective in determining the best ideas or approaches. The field of ‘sustainability’, in essence, is a transdisciplinary one.

The impact of the STAR TEAMS model has minimum disruption to an organisation’s daily operations and profoundly improves its performance.

“Innovation is the central issue in economic prosperity.”

Michael Porter
