In response to the relentless speed of change and the impending disruption that industry 4.0 will bring to business and global community, Hummingbird International, which was a representative of Consulus Global, has its consultancy division upgraded to a fully-fledged partner as Consulus Lanka.
The launch event was held with a CEO Breakfast Meeting at Jetwing Colombo Seven with Regional Director North America and Europe Dr. Paolo Frizzi addressing the audience on Industry 4.0 and its impact on organisations. CEOs and senior leaders of industry and officials of Consulus Global and Hummingbird International attended the event.
Hummingbird International has extensive experience supporting Sri Lankan organisations on critical organisational design and development areas. Whilst these initiatives continued to connect people with their organisational strategy, the next natural progression of reimagining and realizing the organisational existential purpose to prepare for the coming industrial revolution becomes increasingly essential.
For this urgent reason, Hummingbird has taken the bold step to become an accredited and fully-fledged member of Consulus who has extensive experience in helping companies transform their business models through innovation. The Consulus Lanka consultants will look forward to providing innovative solutions to Sri Lankan companies on their transformational journey to become more relevant in the future.
“In partnership with other Consulites present in 11 countries from Brazil to Singapore, we will also look forward to adding our Sri Lankan perspective to the network. While international in outlook, Consulus’ practical and integrated approach of combining business, organisational development and design is a good fit for the business realities in Sri Lanka,” said Consulus Lanka CEO Shiraz Latiff.
“Leveraging on the Consulus experience (spanning over 20 cities and helping companies with an aggregated turnover of US $ 5.2 billion), Consulus Lanka will be able to bring to this country the tested innovation methodologies and expertise. Consulus Lanka will have consultants accredited by Consulus Global and would offer to Sri Lankan companies quality organisation transformation solutions by Sri Lankans and supported by global experts,” said Consulus Lanka COO Lakshini Kurukulasooriya.
“We are extremely happy to see Shiraz take this step to establish Consulus Lanka as a fully-fledged member of our global network. As an innovation consultancy inspired by the thinking of the economy of communion, our principal approach in transforming companies is to enable unity, which becomes the glue that unites different stakeholders, leaders, employees and the community for sustainable change.
In a similar way, now that Consulus Lanka is a full-fledged member and not a representative, we look forward to Sri Lankan Consulites making a contribution to our global network in terms of sharing their know-how and work on projects globally,” said Consulus Group CEO Lawrence Chong.
“The establishment of Consulus Lanka is a strong positive move for Consulus growth in South Asia as we can now tap on to Sri Lanka’s bright and talented young people to expand our work internationally. We also see that Consulus Lanka can serve as one of our global centres for excellence,” said Consulus South Asia Regional Circle Regional Director Rita King.
