Bringing people together
to imagine a better future

Technological and environmental change is speeding up. The challenges facing today’s businesses are in some ways unprecedented. The ubiquity of technology and the breadth of its impact on business, society and the planet have outstripped traditional approaches.

Waste Not

GROUP OF HUMANS is a collective of industry leading peers. Diverse, thought provoking individuals, whose work, reputation and skill sets push creativity and technology and define their categories.

All of us are determined to rethink the processes and priorities of modern business, for profitable and sustainable outcomes. Together we look at the world differently, change the way we accept risk, nurture insight and collaborate with clients.

Our behavior helps to define our purpose, to Waste Not. We do not pitch, we do not pad, we refuse to pollute humanity and the world we live in. We believe technology with a human soul can support the present and nourish the future.

What we do

GROUP OF HUMANS project teams are small, flexible and adaptable. Each team is selected from our global community to bring the skills, processes and experiences needed to take on the problem at hand. These curated teams form the backbone of our service offering, but sometimes the complexity of contemporary business problems means new questions emerge as projects progress and evolve.

When this happens we use our cloud platform to access the GROUP MIND; harnessing the collective experience of every human in our global community.

James Kim

VP of Portfolio Options & Chief Technology Officer at Platinum Equity

I was looking for a team that had talent in product design and development for a consumer-facing platform, but didn’t want to land a team from the traditional consulting firms that do IT consulting type work. Group of Humans was able to offer great people that provided thought leadership and effective coaching – and helped our team deliver on much needed improvements.

Marc Randolph

Netflix Co-founder and first CEO; Author of That Will Never Work, the Birth of Netflix and the Amazing Life of an Idea

As I was beginning a new chapter of my career, I worked with Group of Humans on crafting a brand story and developing my website.

The initial process of delving into and articulating the brand was very thought-provoking and collaborative. Next, we worked together to create the website, which was so painless! The team instantly got what I was trying to communicate and were efficient, professional and readily available throughout.

The whole experience of working with Group of Humans was great. It felt like I had access to, and the attention of, really outstanding talent.

Vijay Sundaram

Group Product Manager at Google Research

  • In my personal opinion, Group of Humans has gathered one of a kind talent and perspective. Simon brought precious creative insight to an intensely complex R&D problem and opportunity. And was a joy to work with to boot – inspired, engaged, and committed from start to finish.

Waste Not

As children we were told waste not, want not.
Now we are old we want not waste.

We are just a Group of Humans,
All status we disown,
We are grown beyond the baubles
the money and the shows.

Standing naked with ambition,
Stripped down to the core,
To leave what’s broken better than before.

Waste Not, your time, your talent, Waste Not your planet earth.
Waste Not your weakness or your wisdom, your anger or your mirth.

 

Waste Not.
