Cogendo and Henley Business School

We’re very pleased to announce that over the last few weeks we’ve been working with Henley Business School (HBS) and their MBA programme. This week, the preliminary results are in and we get to see the initial product of many hours work by:

The team have been busy poring over Cogendo’s business and our PerformanceHub product, looking at everything from the ground up. From what we have seen so far, the quality and depth of work is amazing.

It all started, as many things do, in a pub. We were having a ‘business meeting’ with one of our advisors, Jeff Wellstead when Martin Percival happened to walk by. Jeff, a friend of Martin’s, rushed to grab him and pulled me along saying “this is a guy you HAVE to meet.”  Martin is a HR Director with a wealth of experience, now studying for an MBA at HBS, who saw the potential of PerformanceHub immediately. Through this connection we got involved with the MBA programme.

The programme requires its students to demonstrate their understanding of what they’ve been taught in a real-life business. Luckily for us, after a short pitch, Cogendo was selected from a list of potential candidates.

The team’s initial output (lots of good quality work) will shortly be followed by individual pieces from each member.  We’ve been really encouraged by the team’s thinking so far, and like some of their strategic ideas. We’re looking forward to more of the same in these individual reports.
