No.8 Consulting

No 8 Consulting is a contemporary change management practise that exists to help businesses turn corners. Our change management approach is to work with senior stakeholders in order to advise, build and support the current teams capabilities to bring out their potential and possibilities. All along, supporting the change program requirements.

Our vision to elevate Australian businesses by optimising their performance through people we believe that change is infinite – be it people, businesses or technology.

Our services range from consulting on strategic business initiatives, to hands on delivery of change programs, through to facilitating the development of individuals and teams.

We have experience across a range of scenarios; scaleups looking to disrupt, reacting to a merger or acquisition, or turnarounds and repositioning existing businesses from challenger organisations, and have guided companies on major business transformations. Many changes also involve technological changes impacting ways of working and automation.

What sets us apart from most consultancies and makes our clients successful is our hands on, tailored and pragmatic approach. As true independents with broad national experience we are accomplished in devising complex transition plans, designing new and meaningful working methods and processes, and guiding stakeholders from concept to outcome.

Number 8 Consultancy knows that change management is a broad, emerging, ambiguous and often poorly understood and implemented concept, so we work with our clients in order to define what change means for them and how we can accomplish their strategies, vision and requirements.

Our Story

The number 8 within our company name denotes the infinity symbol on its side. This signifies our understanding that change is infinite and that our approach to change management is different – in fact a little sideways to the approach that many change consultancies take. We believe that rather than just looking at technology and new processes, as many consultancies do, it is people and how we manage them, that should drive change. This concentration on people reorganisation and how people react to change that is core to our change management methods.
