Business can be much like war, never more so in times of uncertainty

Read our Covid-19 article “Mission Purposing Organisations Through Crisis”


A combat to commercial approach to generating mission purpose, delivering change and achieving scale and pace in a disruptive world.


Fusing corporate and consultancy business acumen with the military pedigree for auditable decision making and planning – to resolve complex challenges through agile execution in a volatile environment where empowerment, pace and the ability to pivot and innovate are essential.

Our Services


Drawing from a military background and based on a depth of commercial experience, which has been combined with behavioural science and extensive research, Matero Consulting was set up in 2019 to fuse the partners’ corporate and consultancy experience with the military pedigree for decision making, planning and empowered mission focused execution to help clients drive their change agendas.  

Called MECCAR, Matero has developed a blended methodology backed by principles and tools to deliver agile, collaborative, mission focused execution in a disruptive environment where decentralised authority, tempo and innovation are essential for clients who want to think differently, move at pace and achieve effective change, to get ahead of the competition and thrive in uncertainty

No plan survives first contact with realities.  MECCAR works in an exponentially changing and uncertain business environment: the dizzying pace of tech change, growing disruption by non-traditional actors and increasing regulatory pressures, media and conduct scrutiny are the same factors that the military have taught their units and people to deal with.
