At a Human Resources Directors Network event organised by Nigerian management consultancy Phillips Consulting recently themed “Leadership and Innovation,” the firm has emphasised the point that constant transformation and evolution is the principle at the heart of most top businesses.

The principle holds especially true for consulting firms, given that the expectations from these entities evolve with each development in the market, large or small. The point was made by the Senior Partner for Strategy & Operations Tranformation at Phillips Consulting Francis Buamah.

Buamah spoke at the sixth Human Resources Directors Network organised by the Nigerian consulting firm in Lagos last week, where the firm also unveiled its training calendar for next year. The calendar offered detailed schedules on training modules organised by Phillips Consulting to facilitate business transformation.

The firm has been adhering to this principle itself over the last year, having undergone a change in leadership and subsequently engaging in efforts to transform its internal operations. At a Nigeria South Africa Chamber of Commerce event last month, the firm revealed an entirely new profile with an expanded suite of services.

Philips Consulting now offers end-to-end support with business transformation with continued emphasis on its traditional expertise in people management and training. “For Phillips Consulting, this is an opportunity to redefine ourselves and services to be relevant in this digital economy,” said Buamah.

The Chairman of the firm, Foluso Phillips, reiterated Muamah’s emphasis on constant change within organisations by highlighting the importance of digital transformations for businesses, particularly in the current scenario across Africa’s business environment that is digitally charged.

Managing Director at Phillips Consulting Robert Taiwo said, “the core themes of digital transformation and the purpose driven workforce are more pertinent now than ever before. New technologies can drive competitive advantage and stimulate job creation for young people. This is especially important in a country where 62 per cent of the population is under the age of 25.”
