The past is never fully gone – it is absorbed into the present and future, it stays to shape what we are and what we do. (Sir William Deane, 1996).
Lessons from History (LFH) is an unique organization that develops creative solutions to complex problems for the business world. Most importantly LFH creates a transformation roadmap from the past to the present to the future. What makes LFH unique is our approach because we draw on Lessons-from-History, that is lessons from historical case studies. This adds another dimension to our approach to finding solutions by expanding the analysis and injecting creative ideas through concepts and practices that would likely not have been considered. We bring to the business world an inspiring and exciting approach to solving complex business problems which is part of the set of services and products that we provide:
The application of historical analyses remains an underutilized approach in management and organization studies (Clark and Rowlinson, 2004).
Our approach is grounded in extensive university level academic research and we use it to bring fresh thinking and ideas to the table:
History is the record of man’s steps and slips. It shows us that the steps have been slow and slight; the slips, quick and abounding. It provides us with the opportunity to profit by the stumbles and tumbles of our forerunners. Awareness of our limitations should make us chary of condemning those who made mistakes, but we condemn ourselves if we fail to recognize mistakes. (B. H. Liddell Harts)
This is to offer ideas, practices, and solutions from the past as an innovative means of assisting project and business leaders in their efforts to succeed in today’s global marketplace.
