What We Do
Businesses develop through a series of predictable phases as the company grows and become more complex. Success leads to a series of predictable challenges due to growth, increasing complexity, adaptation to changing market conditions, people and systems issues. We understand these phases and what it takes to evolve to the next level of performance and size. Clients call on us to facilitate their company’s evolution beyond the founding/entrepreneurial phase to the next level: the professionally managed phase.
We help to preserve the the values and personality of the founders and their vision while building capacity, managing complexity, developing management expertise.
One key to successful evolution is storytelling: providing meaning and continuity in the transition from what was to what will be. Stories are the glue that connects people to the higher purposes of their jobs and inspire motivation and commitment.
Determine impediments limiting performance and evolution.
