To be competitive, today’s businesses need to be faster and more adaptive to change. That’s where we come in. We work with businesses and government agencies to help them to adapt when confronted with constant customer, market, and technological changes.
We specialise in new ways of working that support businesses to improve the things that matter most – speed of delivery, solution quality, and customer satisfaction. Through consulting, coaching, and training, we'll help your business build the mindset and practices that create more productive workplaces and more engaged workers.
From local start-up to agile pioneers
SoftEd was first formed in 1990 as a result of a management buy-out of Datacom Education from Datacom Systems, one of Australasia's largest IT services organisations.
From start-up beginnings in New Zealand, we now operate from a network of offices that span Australia, Asia, New Zealand, and the United States. Today we have built a team that boasts internationally recognised thought leaders in agility and offer a wealth of experience in building organisational capability and have helped some of the world’s best-known brands to grow their culture and capabilities.
In 2021, SoftEd became part of the Skills Consulting Group, a full-service consultancy specialising in learning and development, workplace wellbeing, and education consulting.
