Our Story

Challenge. Accepted.

Cadence Innova began its journey in 2007 as the Cadence Partnership.

We soon discovered there was value in diversity, and developed our business model on building small, agile teams—a mix of senior management consultants and sector specialists—around real customer and business problems.

Over the last 10 years we’ve innovated how government bodies deliver services to its citizens, helped to transform innumerable complex organisations, designed remediation programmes that satisfied regulators and saved our clients both effort and money.

Achievements

Today, Cadence Innova is an independent firm of 100+ senior level pragmatists, innovators, strategists, technologists and delivery experts.

Working closely with our clients we identify new business opportunities, design new propositions, build rapid prototypes and create the roadmap to bring new services to market—ready for fast growth.

Our People

There’s no point in having bright ideas without the right people to implement them.

In addition to core consultancy and leadership experience, our diverse mix of talent bring unique ‘out of the box’ skills to each project, including: creative problem solving, ergonomics, behavioural economics and organisational design to name a few.
