Gisch Consulting offers a fully guided and supported process for selecting, testing and implementing a project management solution to help SMEs embrace cloud productivity solutions. One of the key differences between Gisch Consulting is the deeper understanding of how systems and processes are interconnected and combined to suit your organisation’s unique circumstances.

Anita Gisch

I’m not just passionate about helping small and medium enterprises (SMEs); I’m deeply committed to it. Leveraging my extensive background in anthropology, business analysis, and information technology, I offer a blend of skills uniquely designed to help organisations like yours thrive.

What truly sets me apart is the HOME Improvement approach—a proprietary, evidence-based methodology rooted in my PhD research into how SMEs navigate disruptive change. This framework serves as a compass for my consultancy work, ensuring that you’re not only keeping up with change but leading it.  While many consultants might offer you a generic solution, I dig deep to tailor strategies specifically designed for your unique organisational culture.

A HOME Improvement Approach

What sets me apart is my proprietary HOME Improvement approach, an evidence-based methodology rooted in years of rigorous research into how small and medium enterprises (SMEs) adapt to transformative changes in their work practices.

The HOME Improvement Approach stands for:

Part 1: Holistic Analysis: Starting with the Bigger Picture
The approach begins with a holistic analysis of your business. This stage is about gaining a comprehensive understanding of current operational models, work cultures, and employee dynamics — crucial for identifying areas needing change.

Part 2: Organisational Procedures and Work Practice: how the design and categorisation can significantly influence behavioural patterns within an organisation. The goal is to refine processes and practices to not just meet current needs but also to be adaptable for future challenges.

Part 3: Mapping the Future State: Charting a Sustainable Path Forward
Strategic mapping involves setting a clear vision for the future. It’s a crucial step for aligning short-term actions with long-term objectives, ensuring that SMEs are moving in the right direction.

Part 4: Employee Engagement: The Core of Sustainable Change
Involving employees in the transformation process is essential. The ‘HOME’ Improvement approach emphasises the importance of engaging the workforce in every step, fostering a collaborative and inclusive culture.

I’m interested in hearing about your experiences with organisational change. Have you faced barriers in implementing changes within your SME?

I create fully customised, tailored solutions that address the unique needs of each business I work with. My process is built on three key pillars:

Organisational Anthropology

I don’t just show up with a generic training package and make it fit your business. I approach my work as an anthropologist, treating every client as a unique entity to be explored and understood on a deep level. I look for the patterns, connections, and subtleties of your organisation and identify the elements that can unlock the most meaningful changes.

Systems and Process Change

My work is iterative, which means that I gather information and present my findings in stages, to ensure we’re moving in the right direction as quickly and effectively as possible. This approach allows me to get to know the inner workings of your organisation and see what needs to be tweaked, improved, or outright overhauled to clear a path to success. I also spend time getting to know your people, since getting your staff engaged, onboard, and excited is crucial to the outcome of any change management project.

Change Management

Organisations don’t change — people do! I help you identify the long-term changes that will scale and grow your business and get your staff on board by proactively addressing the political, social, and environmental contexts that present barriers to change.

Project Management

Meaningful business growth is built on good practices and procedures. I help you streamline your operations so that projects get done on time and on budget.

Process Design and Integration

Together, we’ll create and integrate the processes that can turn your business strategy into tangible success.

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

Solutions start with thinking deeply about a problem. I take a critical lens to your operations to see what’s working and what could be improved. Then, I use that information to develop and deliver sustainable solutions that address the unique needs of your organisation.

Stakeholder Management

For change to happen smoothly, the needs of every stakeholder have to be considered. I lay the way for successful transitions by identifying the often complex and competing needs of the various stakeholders involved and offer solutions that everyone can agree on.

Software Training

The latest and greatest tech isn’t worth much if your staff can’t (or won’t) use it. I offer detailed training and support so that you get the most out of your investment in software.

Flexibility and Adaptability

In a fast-changing world, flexibility and adaptability are everything. I’m a master of pivoting in order to provide the solutions that make sense for where your business is today and where it’s going tomorrow.

My services run the spectrum of change and process management, from the big picture, such as strategy and process design, to the granular, such as software training and project management.


Steph Cassidy – CEO

“We went down a sink hole trying to tackle the integration of WorkflowMax ourselves. Then, we found Gisch Consulting and things got a whole lot simpler and a lot quicker. Anita saved us infinite hours in guesswork and immediately reduced our levels of frustration.

She understood our small business swiftly and took away the complexity of software integration. Anita is also a clear and patient trainer and developed easy to follow instructions for ongoing use. Thanks Anita.”


Kavan Applegate – Director

Guymer Bailey Architects has been working with Anita Gisch for the past three years, Anita introduced to the business to WorkflowMax. We have really appreciated Anita’s ability to listen to what our objective is with our in-house software needs, as well as how she has guided us through the benefits and limitations that we had, and overcoming this with a tailored approach and patience.

She operated as part of our team and has taken the time to audit our information in WorkflowMax data to establish the gaps and inconsistencies with our knowledge, working with this has been very valuable, not only at a Director level but for our Project leaders and finance team also.

With her assistance, we now have a solution that talks to the other systems that we have in place. Anita’s on-going support has been outstanding and very much required.  Given Guymer Bailey experienced a period of rapid growth in the last two years. We needed to make adjustments with how we report data and the level that we can breakdown information.

We could not have done this without Anita.  It has been valuable to be guided through how agile the software can be with an expert.”


Addison Lane – Principal
