Jack Martin Leith leading a reconnaissance at European Sharing on Systems Thinking, Prague, Czech Republic, 18 – 20 June 2015
Jack is an innovation consultant who walks the talk. He is constantly innovating his own business activity, its design and aims.
He is ‘the person’ to talk to for large group interventions, for whole system change and innovation. I attended a four-day Open Space conference that Jack facilitated. It set me on a new path in life.
Jack is highly committed and skilled, challenging and truly creative. He thinks deeply about innovation and transformation. He has developed a range of propositions about innovation that can lead to new insights on the topic. He understands creativity and innovation and has developed practical ways to develop innovativeness in organisations.
Jack’s views tap into the wild and the wonderful as well as the rational. He likes to shake things up, and to help that shaking to happen quickly. He doesn’t mess about!
You won’t always find it easy working with Jack because he is one of that rare breed — an authentic agent of change and innovation who is prepared for things to get harder before they get easier.

“For three decades Jack has been the go-to walking encyclopaedia of the very best and most innovative management and organization theory. He is second to none in comparing, contrasting, and critiquing models, explaining complex management thinking simply and memorably, and turning ideas into effective practice. A sophisticated thinker of this calibre and breadth of knowledge who is also a skilled practitioner, is these days something of a rarity.”
