We combine the sciences of business psychology and advanced analytics with a distinctly human touch. We study leader characteristics, behaviour, impact and performance outcomes, and we integrate them to create actionable insights at individual, team and organisational levels. This is how we create world-class assessments and development interventions, which help leaders and their teams to lead, better.

What Matters To Us
Our Thoughts & Ideas
The political and economic uncertainty of Brexit has certainly grabbed the attention of most UK businesses recently. While government and business leaders try to navigate their way through Brexit talks and strategies, another big change in the operating environment has quickly come upon us: the dreaded GDPR. GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, came into full force last week. There is plenty of contradictory information about what impact GDPR will have on businesses, so leadership teams need to ensure their organisations are ready to thrive in a GDPR-compliant world. As [...]
Chances are that by now we have all heard of how "Big Data" and "Analytics" has begun to take over the way HR (and the world in general) functions. "Buy this new machine learning and artificial intelligence software, and the future of working life could be turned upside down". But, how many of us have actually seen this seemingly too-good-to-be-true technology produce actionable insights? Well, we've had a go.

Working Together As One
Our Specialist Health Sector Services
Edgecumbe Health specialises in creating sustained performance improvement for individual doctors, clinical teams and senior levels of healthcare management.
Edgecumbe Doctor 360 was the first multisource feedback instrument for doctors, and it is still leading the way. Its superior measurement properties mean doctors need fewer responses from colleagues and patients to produce a valid assessment, saving valuable clinician time. In addition, the resulting data is ‘cleaner’ than that from the standard GMC questionnaire which most providers offer, enabling insights from the data which simply cannot be achieved from ‘noisier’ data. We can offer the GMC tool, but the 50 NHS Trusts we currently support have all opted for the Edgecumbe Doctor 360.
