Capability in uncertainty 
Organisational agility

Your key to:

Fewer avoidable failures
Less crisis management
Continuous adaptation

Responding to changes once they happen is costly and slow.  You are always trying to catch-up.


True agility is the ability to adapt our capabilities today, to meet the needs of tomorrow.

In a complex, unpredictable world, this hard to do. 

It requires an applied systems thinking approach using business systems capability  as the key lead-indicator of future performance.

I have a vision for our future.

I can see the next steps.

But we always struggle to adapt  before we are forced to.

How do we break free?

Organisational capability diagnostics

It's what we're best at

To know how best to change and adapt requires a systems approach to capability.  Only then can you work with confidence on the whole, to achieve sustained, focused capability and performance improvements.

...leading, researching, inventing, advising, collaborating, and coaching ...

Frustrated by long experience of avoidable failures and poor risk management in large organisations and complex projects, RiskIQ was created to challenge, update and reframe the risk management status quo.  

We have developed practical tools for quickly understanding complex risks and responding holistically, rather than one risk at a time.

  • Multiple senior leadership roles in Defence, Police, Corporate  Force and other organisations.

  • PhD research and using applied systems thinking to research, challenge, invent, design and extend traditional risk management.

  • Active in the Institute of Risk Management (IRM) and the Risk Management Institute of Australia (RMIA).

  • RiskIQ’s frameworks, methods and tools are taught at Executive Masters level at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and in vocational training with the International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM).   


Our journey continues, as we explore the value of Systemic Risk Intelligence, and its ability to enable business-as-usual transformations in organisational capability and performance.

Manager Audit & Risk, of a large Public Service organisation


RiskIQ collaborated with the Manager in developing a new strategic risk management process and risk register, to replace the (failed) traditional approach they had been using.

“ This was the best personal professional development I have ever had ”.

CEO of Public Health organisation

After an organisational capability and systemic risk diagnostic, in the context of their Strategic Plan.  The work was primarily with the Executive and the Board and included risk reviews of several major strategic initiatives.

“Thank you.  I am not easily impressed, and you have delivered 100% of what you promised and in a more nuanced way than I expected.   We would not have got to where we are without you".

Project Risk workshop participants

RiskIQ facilitated a one-day project strategic risk review of a major infrastructure project in NT, using its unique “Holistic Risk Inquiry Workshop” process.

Participant A: 

“ This was the best project strategy day I have had in a long time.”  

Participant B:  

“We did not mention probability even once, yet we had a great strategic risk conversation".

External Auditor of a large NZ Public sector organisation

RiskIQ partnered with this organisation to implement a modern systems leadership approach to risk management, after it was criticised for poor risk management capability in an external review.  18 months later, there was an independent progress review.

“ There has been a significant improvement in the last 18 months.  The risk management approach now being taken seems to me to be leading best practice in the public sector.”
