Building a future where mission focus, innovation, adaptability, and inclusivity are at the heart of everything we do

Amentum is at the beginning of an exciting chapter in its journey – we’re kicking off a ‘Culture Renovation’ project. This isn’t just some corporate jargon; it is ensuring our company is the best it can be, for everyone involved – our team, clients, future stars who might join us, and the communities we are part of.

Our journey kicked off in January with a fantastic mix of people from across Amentum UK. We gathered not just to have a chat, but to think long and hard about what makes us, well, us! What keeps us ticking and how can we be even better? This wasn’t your regular meeting – it was the first step towards something that I believe will define our future.

Our culture is our superpower. It’s what sets us apart and it’s something we’re incredibly proud of. But in a world, that’s changing at lightning speed, we know we can’t stand still. We need to evolve, adapt, improve, and continue to get better. This isn’t about tearing down what we’ve built; starting from scratch; it’s about making Amentum stronger, more resilient, and ready for whatever the future has in store for us.

The inspiration for this journey comes from Kevin Oaks at i4cp and his brilliant book, “Culture Renovation: A Blueprint for Action.” It’s become our go-to guide for navigating these changes. especially with the big moves we have coming up!

What’s special about this journey is that it’s a team effort. It’s not just a few people at the top making decisions; we want everyone’s input to co-create our future. We’re setting up forums to hear what our people think, what they love about Amentum UK, and what they believe we could do better. This is about making sure our culture reflects every single one of us.

This approach fully aligns with the broader vision of Amentum Corporation. Our CEO, John Heller, initiated this cultural shift at our global leadership conference back in November 2023. And, it doesn’t just affect us in the UK; it’s a movement across the entire corporation, reflecting our commitment to a unified, progressive future. We were lucky enough to have i4cp’s Chief Research Officer Kevin Martin join this leadership conference to deliver an excellent keynote on the global mega trends seen in the workplace along with practical application of their blueprint.

If you’re keen to get into the nitty-gritty of how we’re doing this, there’s a presentation on the i4cp Blueprint that you should check out: (88) Culture Renovation: A Blueprint for Action ( And, for an even deeper dive, the full book is available on Spotify and Audible.

As we move forward, I’ll share updates on how we’re progressing. This isn’t just an internal shift; its’ impact will be felt far and wide. It’s a commitment to everyone we work with, and for. We’re building a future where mission focus, innovation, adaptability, and inclusivity are truly at the heart of everything we do.

I’m really excited about this journey and what it means for us all. It’s not just about handling today’s challenges; it’s about being ready for the amazing opportunities coming our way.
