About Wzard Innovations and the Wzards
Passionate About Inspiring Innovation
Connect with a team that have been there and done it. Back in 2012 the (now) Wzard team coined the term "Fast Track" to help a large UK insurance company get over the inertia that was preventing new ideas making it out to market and improving the operation. Fast track was originally about accelerated delivery of applications that were stuck on the agenda, but quickly adapted to the needs of a changing organisation culture.
Rod Willmott - Chief Wzard
Rod Willmott who started the Fast Track team and now leads Wzard, has been involved helping organisations change the way they think since the start of his career and over the course of the past 30 years has learnt to help organisations adapt to the fact that change is ever more pressing.
"Over the past 5 years I have seen the rise in pressure on organisations driving the need to change fast and the importance of developing the ability to behave differently has never been greater. Large organisations still struggle with the same issues that we dealt with years ago; 'it's the way we have always done it' are 8 dangerous words. Technology is now the easy bit, it's legacy processes that you need to think about changing, and overcoming the fear that doing it differently is somehow wrong."
Rob King - Chief Operating Wzard
