ADAPT BY DESIGN

Building a Better Future for Your Business

What is ADAPT?

ADAPT by Design is a methodology for small and medium enterprises to systemise their business. It’s designed to help founders think about the succession planning of their business and build a better future.

ADAPT was created by Bill Withers, a ‘tech entrepreneur’ with a passion for systems thinking and data-driven decision making.

Over the 22 years that Bill was the owner of acQuire, he encountered the many unique problems that SME businesses face. When he went out to find support to overcome them, he struggled. He found that most business advice in the market was geared towards larger ‘corporate’ organisations and nothing seemed to exist that supports the growth and resilience of smaller businesses. 

Bill launched ADAPT in 2014 and has spent years working with the team to develop a framework and coach-led program that supports business owners to build solid foundations of a truly resilient business.

Hear from John about ADAPT

“ADAPT by Design is a methodology for small and medium enterprises to systemise their business. It’s designed to help founders think about the succession planning of their business and build a better future.

There’s the ADAPT Way which is a methodology, and you have the ADAPT platform which allows you to capture everything you’re doing. But fundamentally you get a business coach, you actually get someone who sits there independently with you, going through the process of thinking through your systems, your processes and your team’s engagement.

If you’re like me a small business owner and you understand the complexities of running a small business day in and day out, the ADAPT Way gives you everything you need to systemise and create a resilient business.”
