Punk Management

Being a good manager is not enough. Today you must stand out. Being "punk" is dangerous. Provocation can be fatal.

What if you mix these opposite behaviours?

Punk Management is a shift from different postures - Punk and Manager - to generate creative ideas and turn them into innovative solutions.

You have to combine « TRANSGRESS & PROGRESS ». As a "Punk" you transgress conventions, habits, codes. As a Manager you make people and business progress.

Be Punk Managers. Make your team live a unique and inspiring experience.

Why using Punk Management?

  • Federate, commit, valorize teams with an amazing experience
  • Break routine and get out of comfort zone
  • Learn a process and techniques easy to reproduce
  • Disrupt by building original and relevant solutions

Extracts

  • A clear and structured process to disrup
  • Change perception, explore and create new possibilities
  • Creative punk techniques to transgress
  • Back to management : beware the traps!
  • Manage reality constraints and move your project forward

Retex

The best way to really learn from failure and success is to valorize people experience.

RETEX is a structured and creative process to generate improvements everywhere in the company by using Return on Experience (successes & failures).

A transparent canvas gets closer to employees’ reality: what sticks us in the past? What to boost right now? What has never been done? Etc.

RETEX is a more effective way to analyse practices, attitudes, feelings and detect opportunities about customers’ needs, processes, employees, culture, etc.

The goal is to catch what is invisible in data, charts, meetings and day to day work.

The RETEX approach is especially valuable for business events such as fairs and trade shows, marketing campaigns, annual conferences, product launch, etc.

Extracts

  • Return on Experience and failure: share what you think
  • Improve responsability and recognition
  • Mix rational and emotional feedback
  • What have we learnt? Let’s share the lessons
  • Warning: action is a must! What must be done now?
  • Use systemic Retex to always keep a step ahead

Destroy

The Destroy approach is about AGILITY : are you able to change when needed ?

First, you’ll challenge your business activity with 30 cheeky questions: what to destroy (past), optimize (present), invent (future)?

Obviouness will be jolted. New connections will be created. Unexpected possibilties will be explored. Bold propositions and novel ambitions will emerge.

Then, you’ll update your business model and strategy with clarity and unity. All must be clear and everybody must be aligned on the destination to reach.

New challenges will be tackled with a renewed strategy. A fresh vision of the future will be shared.

Extracts

  • Destroy: what to let go from yesterday?
  • Optimize: what to manage better today?
  • Create: what to invent for tomorrow?
  • Redesign or adjust your strategy, mission and vision
  • Create new ambitions and get ready for future

QuickWins

Sometimes we don’t have time to be creative. Day to day activities interfere (meetings, emails, deadlines, last minute priorities, etc.). Minds get frozen. Routine become soporific.

The QuickWins approach provides small creativity doses without deeply challenging established strategy, models and processes.

The creative tools generate pragmatic improvements instead of « jackpot ideas ». The techniques are applied individually or in groups, in 15 to 60 minutes.

A concrete action plan is built by the team to implement ideas in 3 days, 3 weeks or 3 months without assigning heavy resources.

Extracts

Our creative clients

The Punk Management Experience has federated people from different departments around a common goal. It gave teams boldness to free their creativity and lead them very far from what they used to do. Barriers fell and creative skills were boosted. Original and concrete operations emerged. Some team members became creativity ambassadors by reproducing creativity techniques within the company.

Eric Adelbrecht,
General Manager Radios
RTL Group

Punk Management is an inspiring experience that allowed the team to leave its conventional patterns. New paths have been explored with a lot of fun. The process is well driven by a facilitator who shakes minds, challenges obviousness and pushes you out of beaten tracks. A great team experience, which gave birth to many more concepts than expected!

Maurine Cousin,
Marketing Manager
Orangina Schweppes Group

Very few people are able to cultivate the difference to become unique. I looked for someone able to coach one of my key managers in this way. I asked Alain to teach him how to shake people minds and create value while remaining relevant, professional and solution focused.

Honesty, Alain succeeded to make him grow in the right direction with excellent assets for his professional life. And I now have the right profile with the right skills for this key position.

Thierry Brynaert,
CEO - MEC Belgium / a GroupM division

It’s great adventure to explore the limits of imagination and discover unexpected possibilities. Thanks to have moved us out of comfort zone and made us think in a different way towards our issues. It was a rewarding journey, full of emotions!

Bernard Wattiez,
General Manager
Murprotec Benelux

How to produce innovative and relevant ideas if you think as everybody does? That’s the philisophy Alain shakes by using effective techniques to reach concrete results.

Punk Management is not only a professional training but also a rewarding human experience. It’s a new mindset, opening doors to an unexpected world full of outstanding opportunities.

Damien D’Ostuni,
Activation Expert
MEC Belgium

I've hired Alain for an international Punk Management mission. We traveled with Alain in 5 different locations across Europe and worked closely with him and our team during 3 months. He was even considered as part of the team!

We really appreciated the creative approach of Alain that allowed the team to completely open up for new ideas but also reconsider what had been achieved until now. Beside helping us redefining our future strategy, Alain definitely contributed to generate more cohesion and communication within the different team members in a decentralized structure like IP Network.

Stéphane Coruble,
Managing Director
