ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Ian Dyason is the Founder of Growth Consulting Asia, and former Chief Executive Officer of the Supply Chain and Logistics Academy (SCALA) in Singapore. Ian has been a trainer and consultant for many organisations for the past 20 years. He has facilitated strategic planning sessions for Fortune 500 companies as well as government agencies for more than 12 years.

Ian is the Master Trainer for the Clarity State Decision Making™ methodology in Asia, a programme developed at MIT-Sloan Business School which helps decision makers look at the strategic nature of decisions and help them make the right decision every time. Ian also teaches Prof Jeanne Liedtka’s programs on strategic thinking and design thinking in Asia. By combining the two programs,  Ian developed GCA's Strategic Decision-Making framework that has been applied successfully in companies like Singapore Airlines, UBS, Bank of Tokyo, Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS), United Overseas Bank Group and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the former SPRING Singapore and the Singapore Tourism Board.

As CEO of SCALA, Ian is both responsible for the operations of the academy as well as the overall programme development. He has applied a design thinking framework in the Supply Chain Professional Conversion Programme, enabling participants to apply the concept to build new business. More than half of the first graduating cohort has reported new business growth as a direct result of the programme.

As a Certified Master Coach with the International Coaching Council (ICC), Ian has been coaching management teams and individuals in areas of strategic decision-making, leadership development and change management since 2007.  Ian is skilled in managing difficult situations, bringing clarity to issues and paving the way to greater performance. He has consulted for Brunei Shell Petroleum Sdn Bhd in 2007 and 2009 providing coaching and training solutions for the Asset Directorate on major change matters.

Ian holds a Bachelor of Engineering from the National University of Singapore on a full government scholarship and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Leicester, UK.
