The key to successful Digital Transformations

The Galapagos Framework is a new approach to digital transformation, comprising the following:

  • A discreet, dedicated innovation environment free from existing business influence and risk.

  • Fast evolution towards a stronger end state which imitates nature through an iterative cycle of many, small incremental changes; micro A-B competitions between ideas, instant feedback loops, and constant course corrections, delivered at speed.

  • Protected from the broader business. Experimentation and testing are continuous, there's no fear of failure, and ideas fit for purpose win through and survive to the next stage.

Why “Galapagos”?

  • The use of “Galapagos” is, of course, in reference to the Galapagos archipelago where Charles Darwin conducted some of the research that led to the writing of the “Origin of Species”.

  • Darwin’s ideas on evolution were not a flash of inspiration but rather developed over time and not along a linear trajectory.

  • Furthermore, Darwin did not work in isolation but rather collaborated with other naturalists to refine his work.

  • The relevance of “geographic isolation”, transformations following a non-linear trajectory and collaboration are some of the key themes of The Galapagos Framework©.
