Are you facing a challenge that looks something like this?
A lack of clarity exists: there is no clear owner, or the issue is unclearly defined, or it’s unclear what needs to be achieved, or the way forward is unclear.
Addressing the challenge is critical to the organization’s viability, well-being or prosperity.
Multiple stakeholder groups, each with its own way of framing the challenge and each with its own agenda, must respond to the challenge in unison.
The programme of work will need to be cross-functional and discipline neutral.
Sustained collaborative action will be essential to success.
A successful result will clear the way for substantial value to be generated.
None of your usual service providers is right for the job.
The time to act is now.
Canaveral can help you respond to an organizational challenge with a programme of intelligent, sustained and well-orchestrated collaborative action — a Canaveral mission.
Canaveral is a mission launch facility, tracking station and support hub located in Bath, United Kingdom and operating internationally.

From Matt Damon’s MIT Commencement Address:
“I want to pass along a piece of advice that Bill Clinton offered me a little over a decade ago.
Well, actually, when he said it, it felt less like advice and more like a direct order.
What he said was: Turn toward the problems you see.
It seemed kind of simple at the time, but the older I get, the more wisdom I see in this.
And that’s what I want to urge you to do today: turn toward the problems you see.
And don’t just turn toward them. Engage with them. Walk right up to them, look them in the eye … then look yourself in the eye and decide what you’re going to do about them.”
