How do we do it?
Working within the Service sector, primarily within Customer Operation, Shared Service & Change functions we learn together and create Fun, Authentic, Caring & Trusted teams that deliver more with less.
People see a lot of change, BUT not a lot of improvement. That is where we are different, the foundation for all improvement starts with learning and the reason we are called ‘Get Knowledge’.
Socrates said, “I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think!”, and we know it is time to think differently about HOW we all approach change.
Our Values of FACT (Fun, Authentic, Caring & Trust) are not just how we are, they fundamentally underpin our standards of service.
Sustainable Performance Excellence (SPEx)
Any LEADER can improve towards their BIG GOAL by deploying SUSTAINABLE PERFORMANCE EXCELLENCE, because it UNLEASHES THE POWER OF YOUR PEOPLE
Regardless of which department you work in we have an approach for you
If you’ve taken on the challenge of making a significant improvement to a Customer metric, we know how difficult this can be. You’ve probably made changes to technology, to processes, even brought in new layers of management but you’re still not quite where you need to be. We have an approach to tackle the Customer challenge.
Shared Service Leaders
It’s often the case that when a large organisation embarks on a culture change that the requirement to land this often gets passed to you, the HR leader. But this is a huge task which cannot be understated, we can see how exciting and also how daunting this can be. We have an approach that helps you land the desired culture at the coal face.
When you’re the leader of an improvement team this can be one of the hardest roles in the 21st century business environment. We know first-hand how difficult this can be. You’re constantly required to prove the value of the team and often in terms of estimated benefit numbers. We have an approach that helps move your change team from surviving to thriving.
In addition to supporting your business to deliver more with less, we transition change teams from just surviving to thriving!
Many improvement teams are just surviving but have the capability to thrive, we unlock that potential.
Change functions are usually the first to suffer in troubling times, because of their challenge to demonstrate their worth. Additionally, being tool or method focussed is not the most
effective way to gain allies. We believe building confident and influential change leaders is the way to more from just surviving to thriving.
“I couldn’t have progressed our internal continuous improvement capability without the support of Jason at Get Knowledge.
Their ethos matches our own, in creating capability and reducing the need for external consultants to deliver those things we can do ourselves.
It’s a refreshing stance on consulting. I have come to rely upon their tenacity, imagination and exceptional professionalism, in my role and will continue to engage with Jason and the team both professionally and personally. Their whole approach brings a sense of commitment and creates an environment of openness and trust.“

Some WORDS, a bit of FUN & maybe a new IDEA
If none of the above we may have just wanted to get something off our chest.
I first started spending time supporting improvement in the water industry FIVE years ago and over that time I've learned a lot. I've had the pleasure of spending time in almost every function of a water company and I have found the whole system fascinating....
You have probably heard the story from 1962 when a cleaner at NASA told President Kennedy that their role was to help put man on the moon... What a great way to demonstrate the power of having a vision, in which every layer of a organisation supports. This brings...
If you’re a leader this concept will not be a new one. You may be working towards one that has been laid down by management. Let’s be clear what we mean about vision. A vision could be pulled together by the CEO and senior team with board level input. This will then...
