The Systemic Stairway methodology for managing complex situations - strategy consulting and training services

FOUNDER & CREATOR 

Julian Day started to experiment with new ways to address the IT implementation problem after having worked in the industry for 20 years as a software developer, systems analyst and project manager. Julian’s research culminated in a PhD entitled “The Design of Collaborative Projects”. Julian developed practical methodologies (the Systemic Stairway™ being a cornerstone) for enabling diverse people to collaborate intelligently in all types of complex situations. Julian has used his methodologies as a facilitator to help many top organisations manage their complex situations and implement their projects successfully. He teaches at prestigious business schools in Southern Africa and has trained thousands of people who find his methodologies practical and useful

I can fully endorse Dr Julian Day and the Systemic Stairway. The method was enormously helpful in creating the great success we have had at Henley in Africa.

Jon Foster Pedley | Dean, Henley Business School Africa

“I first met Dr Julian Day when I enrolled to do an Advanced Certificate in Leadership through Graduate School of Business, University of Cape Town. In a nutshell, the secret of the model in my opinion is the fact that it is rooted in ‘The Design of Collaborative Projects’, which is the title of Dr Day’s PhD. Our success in the Region lay in obtaining the input of every single employee in the structure into the overall view of the business, and then of course processing this input through Dr Day’s tried and tested Systemic Stairway™ methodology. Using the principals of the methodology I was able to extinguish fires and settle the Region on a path to success.”

Avi Ramgoolam | Retired Regional General Manager, Old Mutual
HUGE fan of Dr Julian Day’s work. Had the opportunity to study his approach whilst working with Old Mutual. At the time it was one of those fabulous moments of epiphany: a real game-changer, and it has since been an invaluable part of my toolset as a facilitator. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to get “unstuck”.

Liz Dewing | Managing Director, Magnetic North Facilitation

It has been a real pleasure working with Dr Julian Day over the past 5 years. We have run a number of training programmes as well as workshops to address project related challenges. Julian has the ability to distill complexity into its essence and brings structure, direction and clarity into his problem solving approach. This allows teams to shift towards a common purpose in a collaborative way, having “intelligent conversations” so that everyone is learning. Delegates always leave his workshops with deep insight as well as the energy and enthusiasm to implement the plans that they have committed to.

Bjefke Breebaart | Learning and Development Specialist, South African Reserve Bank

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Dr Day and Mr Theron for assisting to put IDG onto a path that will enable us to tackle the challenges that  COVID-19 have left for us. We are now able to embrace the “new unusual” with confidence!

Jeff van der Watt | CEO, Inside Data Group

A huge thank you Julian to the incredible craft you have gifted to Henley and its delegates and clients in the work you have carried out this year. I am reticent to call it work – it is a calling and an absolute gift. You bring a level of experience that is hard to match and a wealth of understanding of adult education, along with many other attributes.

Linda Buckley | Executive Education, Henley Business School
