Our Formula for Success

To rapidly set the right trajectory, or rapidly shift from the wrong trajectory to the right one, you need to be able to problem solve and align people fast.

The traditional approach to solving problems is linear and time-consuming and with a time frame usually measured in months, it simply can't provide results quickly enough for an organization at a defining moment.

That is why our approach is so radically different. We don't hope for alignment as an outcome. We engineer it as a priority. In two to three days, alignment is achieved. Silos evaporate. Your people are poised for action.

Solving Used to be About Brain Power

Solving big challenges and achieving tough goals was all about relying on the person or small group of people with top-tier brain power. It no longer works to rely on a small group of smart people to move interview-by-interview, document-by-document, readout-by-readout as they try to figure things out and single-handedly guide everyone else to victory.

Our Approach is all about Engineering Collisions

What do we mean by "collisions"? We orchestrate  high-volume, high-quality, high-speed interactions with a high-variety group of people that creates a huge amount of info-sharing and unique perspective, while tapping into the tremendous amount of institutional knowledge your organization holds. This leads to novel ideas, deeper co-creative between silos, and mobilization against a singular goal.
