Welcome to our Friday Newsletter!

We need your help! For the last 4 years running we have been voted as a Financial Times Leading Management Consultant and the 2023 vote is now open! However, a bunch of people have let us know they tried to vote for us (thanks!), but that our name doesn't appear in the list of consultancies to choose from! It only suggests "Basis Technology" which is not our company.

As the deadline is approaching, we expect we'll receive fewer votes this year. But if you'd like to vote for us, you still can and we'd love your help, you can do this here. When it comes to choosing a consultancy, just type in Basis Ltd to make sure your vote counts for us. Thanks very much!

This week it's Alys's turn to share her three interesting links...


Max shared with the team this charming short article on fika, which is a Swedish concept around having a relaxing coffee and cake break. However, according to the article, it’s much more than that - it’s an important part of Swedish culture and something that’s important to do every day. It’s more of a ritual for friends and colleagues to share a cup of coffee (or tea) and something to eat. I think most people can agree on the importance of these kinds of interactions; how can we make sure we don’t lose out on these kinds of interactions when working remotely?

This video shares 6 research based guidelines for achieving and sustaining organisational change. They look at a study that’s just been published in the journal of Health organisation and management, with interesting findings, one of the main ones being that ‘no one model of organisational change works consistently and reliably across different organisations and situations’. This may seem obvious, but is important to consider and highlights the need to adapt and test out solutions in a more agile manner. Watch or listen to the video to find out about more of the recent research findings.

I like the idea that small habits and daily rituals can have a big impact on quality of life. I’m sure you’ve come across this concept before and have seen plenty of lists out there like this one, that promise to create change and have lasting impacts. However, I liked the specificity and thought put into this list and for that reason I thought it deserves a space in the newsletter this week.

Basis's new introductory video
The Basis Team

We've created a new video for our Homepage, which gives a brief introduction to what we do and how we can help teams in the public sector. Give it a watch if you'd like a refresher on what we're all about (or if you miss hearing Joe's dulcet tones!).

Max Goodall

Max has written another great blog, this time on his experiences of working with Matt and a local council. He talks about what we do best - impact sprints, deep work, getting it done days. He says 'this was probably the most I've ever learned in the shortest time'.
