Managing partners

Eric Derks

I’m fascinated by how change happens, especially in how groups and organizations, and larger networks of these, transform the way they work together and what they’re able to achieve. I have nearly 30 years’ global experience managing and advising others on ways of creating change where change is difficult. This includes team building, program management, monitoring and evaluation and research into diverse socio-economic systems and the tools and approaches to create lasting change.

Tim Sparkman

I spend a lot of time thinking about the way information moves within socio-economic systems and how individuals and groups coalesce to solve problems (or don’t). I have more than 10 years of experience designing, managing and evaluating economic and workforce development programs. I combine management experience, including leading long-term change initiatives, with an avid research interest, and have published on topics ranging from organizational development to network structures and system health metrics.
