“A world of flat organisations and tumultuous business conditions — and that’s our world — punishes fixed skills and prizes elastic ones. What an individual does day to day on the job now must stretch across functional boundaries. Designers analyze. Analysts design. Marketers create. Creators market. And when the next technologies emerge and current business models collapse, those skills will need to stretch again in different directions.
—Daniel H. Pink, To Sell is Human.
Matsuda Mulville is an Anglo-Japanese endeavour and the home of Matsuda Mulville Thinking. We are freelance writers and professional service consultants who are motivated by and focus on what the World Economic Forum calls the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Cognitive Flexibility; Complex Problem Solving; Coordinating with Others; Creativity; Critical Thinking; Emotional Intelligence; Judgement and Decision Making; Negotiation; People Management; and Service Orientation.
We seek to think critically and solve complex problems in the pursuit of innovation, creativity, disruption and continuous improvement. Happy in the role of Devil’s Advocate, we strive to make a difference: transforming dysfunction into success; advocating, adopting and adapting to emergent behaviours; improving communication; and being antifragile through gaining from disorder.
Matsuda Mulville has a global focus, and we are excited by globalisation, emotional intelligence, inclusion, multinational staffing and cultural diversity. At our core are the twin concepts of People-First and Customer Focus, both of which enable quality and add value.
Matsuda Mulville Thinking aligns with Lean Thinking and Agile behaviour, specifically in the areas of people and process: continual improvement; the “first time right” approach; providing a world-class service; eradicating waste; enabling quality; eliminating “Failure Demand”; defect reduction; and the principle of a value-stream.
