Why, What & How

Research shows that corporate life expectancy and performance have declined 75% in the last 50 years¹ and only 20% of employees are fully engaged at work². To us this means that organisations need a different approach if they are to survive, let alone thrive.
With an estimated cost of time wasted by poor management of £19 billion for the UK per year³, an improvement in management practices is essential!

Why it is Time Now for
The Management Shift®?

What is The
Management Shift®?

It is stated that “people are our greatest asset”. If only the actions of business leaders were such that this was true.
Research has shown that very few businesses have a clear model of leadership that improves engagement, removes barriers to innovation, and uncovers hidden strengths. We have proven research based tools to address that need.
We believe The Management Shift® is a movement, that will facilitate development of people focused organisations with a clear purpose resulting in sustainable success for all stakeholders.


The Management Shift® is achieved by transferring knowledge to action to achieve sustainable behavioural and process change, using the knowledge and tools described in "The Management Shift" book, based on more than 20 years of Professor Hlupic's research. Professor Hlupic and the rest of The Management Shift® team have been implementing The Management Shift® tools and processes for numerous clients worldwide.

5 Principles of The Management Shift®

The Management Shift® is a transition…


From a controlling mindset to an empowering one


From setting rules to establishing principles


From issuing instructions
to creating


From overseeing transactions to building alliances


From a focus on short-term profits to serving all stakeholders

A summary of research presented in "The Management Shift" book was submitted as a written evidence to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Management, and it was included in their report Management 2020.

The key findings of this report emphasize the importance of focusing on People, Purpose and Potential - this book provides research evidence on why this is so important and how it can be achieved in practice.
