Founder and Group Managing Director, Glenn St. John-Colgan has worked in the commercial sector for nearly 30 years – the majority of which, he has spent operating at director level within the public sector, private international organisations and consultancies.
Having previously worked as a consultant, interim manager and a Senior Civil Servant, Glenn largely found the professional services delivery method frustrating and thought the value structure of both consultancies and agencies could be better.
Being part of the traditional consultancy / interim model, Glenn would enter into his various contracts as an individual, land and complete the job, but feel rather commoditised. The agency model added little value, with limited support or engagement throughout the contract duration. The consultancy model would simply drop you in and brand you but offered little development, and the drive to increase revenue contradicted a claimed client-centric approach.
Even as an independent consultant, Glenn brought the people he worked with together, whether consultants, contractors, interims, civil servants, or employees and deliver something cohesive for his customers and the individuals. He understood the need to bring likeminded specialists together for the benefits of the outcome needed by the employer, the customer, the team.
So why do this alone? He didn’t! He set up Augmentas, finally putting in place the values structure he had been looking for in professional services delivery for so many years.
Augmentas Group is a respectfully disruptive service business, challenging the established models in all of our sectors. Our approach has been designed by wanting to enhance the engagement model from both sides of the consultancy model – the customer and the deliverer. We want to challenge the existing models, and encourage all providers in this field to re-focus on the people, and on delivery.
What makes Augmentas Group different?
At Augmentas, we want to be different. Everything we do is driven by our values. It’s important to us that our teams share the values that the business is founded on – they are what differentiate us, they are the reason for our outstanding results and customer feedback.
- Substance over style
