More than a word, henkō is a concept that refers to changes in perception, in our way of seeing things.
Henko was created in 2017 in response to the need for enterprises to evolve rapidly in the digital landscape. Methods based approaches have not delivered successful change due to their systemic limitations. We are set to help our clients overcome such challenges, change what they are seeing, and re-engineer the DNA of their organisations for a successful digital future.
We bring a people and leadership based approach. We help you build in-house competencies and practices so that you can drive your own unique digital alignment. We help you make sense of digital, realign and adapt in faster changing environments, where the only certainty is that business & technology will increasingly merge in your value chains.
Henko is a unique breed of professional services that mix purposeful facilitation, high-end new digital approaches and professional systemic coaching to work effectively with your teams and leadership.
Henko helps Startups ride a successful growth journey with a focus on evolving their organisation, strategy and leadership through growth.
Henko helps larger organisations, corporates and banks recalibrate / energise / refocus / start-first-time-right (choose what applies best!) their change programmes consisting in realigning business and technology to work effectively together.
