Deploying startup best practice, at scale

Working with leadership teams to cultivate agile ways of working and create a culture of innovation.


With over 400 brands, touching the lives of 2.5 billion every day, Unilever has spent decades building up its business to become on of the biggest, most successful FMCG companies in the world. But in today’s fast-paced and highly volatile business environment, what made you successful in the past, won’t work for the future. The company needs to transform how it works to generate better, bolder, faster innovation so it remains competitive in the long run and deliver on its mission to make sustainable living commonplace.


T-minus has worked at all levels of the company helping them to deliver on the innovation strategy: upskilling Unilever staff on startup best practice, coached agile, cross-functional teams as they develop products that solve real consumer problems, supporting the design of impact metrics, working with leadership teams to cultivate agile ways of working and create a culture of innovation on their teams, helped teams to apply design thinking to solve complex challenges, upskill a cohort of coaches who can drive innovation forward.


We’ve helped dozens of teams at Unilever clearly define the problem to solve and work towards creating validated solutions, embrace new ways of working and develop their capacity to lead and drive disruptive innovation at scale across a global organisation. We’ve helped leadership teams to develop their vision for the future, identify the right behaviours to drive change and work in an iterative, experimental way to co-create new models of working with their teams.
