About Us

PYXIS makes the invisible visible, giving business leaders the tools and insights to build and proactively manage a sustainable culture that drives improved performance.

PYXIS is a management platform that visually maps and measures organisational culture to identify and reduce hidden risks.

We believe culture is a business system connecting every part of the organisation and influencing how people deal with work issues, customers and each other. Key to any successful enterprise, culture encompasses people, processes and technology. Culture is an organisational ecosystem that either enables or blocks business performance.

Our Story

I have first-hand experience of the value of creating a thriving and sustainable corporate culture. In 1994, I established an IT services company called CWB.

CWB took a new approach. By completing complex projects, mostly for banks, on a fixed-price, fixed-deadline basis, my team outperformed internal IT organisations and external consultants, which typically failed to deliver on time and within budget. As a result, the company grew rapidly. As I took on more staff, I knew it was essential to keep CWB’s distinctive small company culture and team spirit alive – but I wasn’t sure how to go about it.

I met John Childress, a pioneer in the field of corporate culture transformation and co-founder of ground-breaking international consulting firm Senn-Delaney, which attracted a roster of blue-chip clients including British Telecom, McDonald’s, Ford, Textron and New York Life Insurance. John was instrumental in building a new culture of safety at Three Mile Island nuclear power plant, following the accident that occurred in 1979. An advisor to global CEOs, John is an influential thought leader and the author of several important business books. John showed me how to create a thriving culture and achieve my aims. I then applied his methods to every aspect of daily working life at CWB, and to every stage of the employee lifecycle.

And it worked. Our revenue doubled year-on-year until I sold CWB to Thales in 2001.

Now we have joined forces. PYXIS Culture Technologies combines my technology and business transformation experience with John's expertise in corporate culture. Working in partnership with PYXIS, your teams can map, build and manage a sustainable culture that drives business performance, putting you in charge, not consultants. Combined with our culture management, strategy execution and leadership alignment expertise, true culture transformation can be delivered.
