We work with your organization to define a project, assemble the right people for a relevant, implemented solution, and lead the collaboration to a clearly defined plan for the next steps, providing "just-in-time" training on highly effective creativity and insight techniques.  These projects tend to be about 40 hours of meetings, often three pairs of days in alternating weeks.  When appropriate, we also provide:


In addition to our unique conceptual approaches to creativity, innovation, and leadership, we draw on socio-technical systems, organizational development, general systems thinking, value engineering, strategic management, conflict management, quality function deployment, total quality management, and creative problem solving. Our breadth of experience prepares us to assist most complex cross functional team projects, regardless of industry, goal, or team membership.

We can completely manage the teamwork and collaboration process on a project or can handle sub parts of ongoing projects, such as leading a particularly difficult meeting, assisting in project planning, or delivering education which prepares the organization to use teams.

Corporate Education Services

Learning to talk about management, leadership, and strategy is rarely enough, but is often the only result of training programs and graduate education. We push for participants to prepare for and follow-up these sessions with reading and real world experimentation with the concepts being covered. We blend relevant theoretical concepts with immediate application to real goals of the individual and organization.
