Our Core Capabilities - Over 20 Years of Innovation History
For over 20 years, AMGI has been helping companies worldwide to achieve measurable business results by improving enterprise wide operations linking Strategy, Technology and Innovation.
We began as a boutique management consultancy specializing in engineering and technology driven businesses. We have honed our practical experience, in aerospace, defence, consumer goods, media, newspaper publishing, industrial equipment, engineering, to create well packaged set of methodologies focused on the management and application of Innovation.
We have transitioned our business to focus on corporate education and training in the field of Innovation Management. Our passion is to transfer knowledge to executives and management to actually drive and sustain innovation through the company by building the competencies and capabilities of the key change agents.
We use a proven implementation path to achieve success in the following areas:
Engineering and New Product Development Management
Enterprise (ERP) Systems Implementation
Business Transformation and Turnaround
Lean Manufacturing and Engineering
Strategic and Directional Planning
Organizational Development and Management Coaching

We help our clients set high standards and provide a provocation for change and continuous improvement. We have a very strong philosophy that Class A improvement can only be sustained when our client has ownership of the change. We do not say this lightly. Our approach is tailored to the unique character of each company and is delivered with varying levels of intensity.

We develop and deliver a comprehensive range of Innovation Management workshops, seminars and courses in all service area. These are conducted both on-site and off-site.

Management of Change – The Heart of Innovation
We apply a proven path to the management of change. We accept that every one resists change in all areas of the business even the executives who hire us. Our approach ensures that each initiative has:
