The application of AWP is a combination of process and technology that is heavily influenced by sociology. This means that it is not enough to know what needs to happen, or to have the tools to do it, we must also help people to want it.
Having the capacity to generate this level of influence is a key skill set for our change agents. It typically comes in the form of an old bull’s quiet confidence, mixed with an infectious enthusiasm for continuous improvement.
So, while we have been working with the industry over the last 10 years to develop a comprehensive understanding of what needs to happen, we have also been busy building the capacity to make it happen, through the acquisition and development of the right people.
Process, Technology, and People.
We are very proud to introduce the Insight-AWP team:
