“Fairisle helped us to help ourselves.”

Melanie Burke

Co-founder and Client Services Director, Electric Putty

We have been running our business for over ten years. At the beginning of this year we wanted to change our focus and the way we worked. But we’re experts in digital delivery not business change. We really value our people and we wanted the changes to work well for our close-knit team.

We were torn

As directors, we discussed what to do over and over, without being able to come up with a clear plan. We were torn. We wanted to be bold. But it was important that our people understood the reasons for change and what it meant for them. We kept going over our options and we realised we needed some help. Which is why we got in touch with Sarah at Fairisle. I knew that whoever we turned to had to be really, really good.

At first I thought Fairisle were going to tell us what to do. But what they did was to help us to help ourselves.

Careful analysis

Sarah spent time with us to analyse the issues carefully, using intuitive and simple to use tools. We soon developed a much better understanding of the key things to consider in our decision making. Working with Sarah helped us to set the conditions to make our change work for us. Fairisle introduced us to some powerful planning techniques so that we had a strong framework for feeling confident in our decision.

A different way

Without Fairisle, I think we would probably still be feeling we wanted to make changes, but not really succeeding. At one point we considered just forging ahead. Fairisle helped us to find a different way to plan, and to measure our success. I feel really confident about our new direction. Fairisle helped us to examine the situation from all sides, and now we know what we want to do. We’re on the start of a new road.
