Really Good Ideas
Alan is the owner and founder of ‘really good ideas’, using evidence-based behavioural science to address organisational and people matters in the infrastructure domain. A business psychologist and a chartered civil engineer, he has worked in global infrastructure design, contracting and advisory services organisations. He became an independent consultant in 2015, combining his interest in behavioural responses to corporate and project governance, strategy and procurement practices with a deeper search for explanations in organisational psychology research and theory.
Recent commissions he has delivered include reviews of the behavioural assessment and relationship development elements of contract procurement and mobilisation processes. He is the co-author of the only (to our knowledge) evidence-based, peer reviewed and published work on behavioural assessments in construction procurement. When thinking about all of that becomes too much he takes off on foot or bike to the Chiltern hills around South Oxfordshire, where he lives with his wife Jane.
