Herman Gyr works with businesses and leaders to transform potential crises into opportunities for reinvention. Whether it is the impact from changes in the global economy, technological advancements or shifts in customer or employee expectations, his interventions help create new possibilities for enterprises and those invested in them.
For over 25 years, Herman has been instrumental in redesigning a significant number of enterprises. His clients have included Apple Computer Inc, the BBC, Canyon Ranch, Delta Airlines, Johnson and Johnson, Kaiser Permanente, Lockheed Martin, Philips, Southern California Edison, Panera, Stanford University, Swisscom and Toyota, to name a few. From start-ups and family owned businesses to universities and multinational corporations, Herman coaches clients to shape moments of disruption into conditions for lasting success.
To achieve maximum impact in the shortest possible time, Herman and his team of colleagues have developed a number of simple tools that can be easily learned by large numbers of people and quickly applied in their daily work. The Enterprise Development Model is a framework for mapping a company’s future and enrolling leaders and other stakeholders to succeed in that future with courage and commitment. Co-star provides users with a disciplined approach to innovation that enables them to develop and improve ideas and achieve significant returns quickly. And Q+ is a web-based social innovation platform that allows everyone in a company to contribute their best thinking.
Herman is a popular speaker focusing on strategic thinking, innovation and business transformation in the digital era. He is the co-author of The Dynamic Enterprise: Tools for Turning Chaos into Strategy, and Strategy into Action.
What keeps him going? He says that he is animated by “identifying new signals, connecting seemingly unrelated threads, and finding possibilities from these connections that seemed quite unimaginable.”
