About Us

Who We Are

Penologic™ is a Strategy and Human Capital Management Consultancy, founded in 2017.

We enable organisations to grow visionary and transformative leaders who deliver on their organisation’s strategic priorities with integrity and compassion.

Penologic™’s vision is to become a leading global, niche strategy and human capital management consultancy, with a team of 20 industry leader associates by 2025.

We aspire to be known as a brand that contributes towards business and digital transformation; regarded as a strategic partner for organisations driving meaningful and sustainable organisation culture change.

Our Service Offerings include:

1. Human Capital, People and Culture Solution Design and Implementation Support

Given that each organisation is unique, exists within a particular eco-system and culture, generic solutions do not work.

By leveraging the expertise within our client organisation teams (e.g. business operations, industry context, organisation culture), our team partners our client teams to identify business requirements and co-create optimal solutions to achieve  their desired outcomes and results.

How do we go about it?

a. We immerse our team in our clients’ organisation to observe, engage, listen and understand context and unique nuances that have kept our client organisations successful, as well as potential blindspots that may hinder growth and future success.

b. In partnership with our clients’ core Human Capital and Strategy Programme leads, we plan for and design solutions that address business transformation objectives.

c. We contract with our client Programme leads to ensure that client Change Champions take the lead, while our team guides and supports by leveraging our experience in business transformation, acquired at several industries.

e. To wrap up, we evaluate with our client partners to consolidate lessons learnt, which can be leveraged in future transformation initiatives.

 2. Programme and Project Management

In our rapidly changing business world, leaders often find themselves overwhelmed by the sheer volume of competing business initiatives; not certain what to prioritise and what to let go of. Without relevant training or passion for coordinating and tracking multiple projects simultaneously, most business initiatives get off the ground, yet are not seen to conclusion.

Our team of qualified Programme and Project Managers partner client Programme and Project leads to guide them through the design, implementation and ongoing tracking of business transformation initiatives.

When our clients let the natural conductors within their organisation, backed by ours lead business transformation initiatives; it frees them up to focus on what they are deeply passionate about, such as running businesses, finding and engaging key customers and stakeholders.

How do we go about it?

a. We facilitate dialogues with stakeholders, employees and customers to specify desired outcomes and results.

b. We help our clients scope, plan, design and implement Business Transformation and Change Management Programmes.

c. We co-facilitate core Project Team and Change Champion On-boarding and Capacity building.

3. Senior and Executive Talent Search, Assessment and Placement

According to Bersin by Deloitte, the average cost per hire is $4000. From practical experience and studies, we know that it takes between 6 and 9 months before newly appointed talent truly unlocks value for their organisations.

While it is true that everyone needs time to settle into a new organisation and role, traditional recruitment practices may over-emphasise qualifications or past experience and overlook the potential impact of a newly appointed Board, Executive or Project team member on the collective performance and dynamics of the team they join.

By utilising a comprehensive assessment framework and accredited tools, we enable organisations to achieve person-role fit, by playing each person to their natural strengths, thus unlocking value for the organisations they join.

How do we go about it?

a. Based on the organisation’s stage of development and broader industry context, we identify key requirements of each role.

b. We conduct psychometric assessments to identify the short-listed talents’ strengths and potential blindspots.

c. We compile individual and team profile reports to highlight team strengths and development areas.

d. We facilitate team feedback sessions to illustrate how each team can leverage the diversity of perspectives and maximise their collective contribution towards the achievement of business goals.
