Angus Kell, Chief Catalyst, CSR Lightweight Systems
“We decided to follow The Catalyst Approach exactly. It would be tempting to think that you can do it yourself, but I can now say with certainty that it is much more effective and efficient to follow a tried and tested process with the wisdom of the Catalyst Advisors. Problems were solved even before they emerged. The guidelines addressed lots of things we hadn’t even thought of and provided us with templates, tips and importantly, the right order for doing things. Now it’s up and running we can tweak it if we need to. The Catalyst Approach is a really great way of engaging everyone in innovation and getting ideas implemented.”
Louise Harper, Chief Catalyst, Mid North Coast Local Health District
"We have worked with Catalyst Exchange for over two years, implementing The Catalyst Approach. It has really helped us open up opportunities for connecting people within the organisation. The Catalyst Approach provides the pathways to move from idea to implementation. It’s been an exciting time at Mid North Coast Local Health District and we look forward to continuing the relationship and moving forward with a positive innovative culture as pioneers within the health sector."
Sean McCarthy, Chief Catalyst, Service Delivery Division (Central & West), Department of Defence
"The Catalyst Approach of employee-driven practical innovation in large and complex organisations is well suited to organisations such as ours, based on recent and early stages of piloting the approach in a small part of the organisation in a regional service delivery context. The team includes highly effective facilitators who are engaging and able to bring the concepts and requirements of a practical innovation system to life for a management team and catalysts, drawing on their extensive experience in the field. They have been very responsive to aligning with flexible scheduling requirements across various Australian locations."
