Our Mission

Our Vision

Our Approach

We look forward to creating the enterprise alignment and organizational capabilities needed to help clients overcome dysfunction and achieve success.

 

We collaborate with our clients to create and deliver comprehensive  and impactful solutions to problems. We bring your employees at all levels to the table and create empowerment and capabilities needed for repeated Problem Solving to become a core capability within your people.

In the time traditional Management Consultancies spend doing a diagnostic or assessment in order to deliver a pretty, high-priced PowerPoint, we identify, pilot, and iterate in your environment to develop org readiness for changes in how work is done.  We're able to do this because our typical deployment teams are staffed by multiple proven implementation SMEs instead of being primarily comprised of generalist going through on-the-job training on your dime.  In short, we deliver as fast as your organization can safely adapt to the change.

We have deep focused expertise in a large variety of problem-solving methodologies and tools, but we're pragmatists.  While there may be occasions where your challenge perfectly aligns with a particular discipline, more often than not, our expertise may call for pulling just a subset of methods and tools from different disciplines to walk the shortest path to impact.  There may be times when we're tasked to lead the way and execute on your behalf and there may be times when our approach is to co-own and to upskill your people by teaching them new ways to solve problems consistently starting with your most relevant problem set.
