We help our clients solve their toughest challenges in 3 days. How?
We engineer alignment and action at defining moments.
We understand that your business is unique and your people are smart and capable. When you have transformation goals, if you need to, you have trusted partners you can go to.
Every key initiative comes up against one or more defining moments at which you and the initiative become stuck. You become stuck because you lack clarity on the way forward, or you lack internal alignment, or both.
You understand that at this time, your initiative can get back on the path to success - or not.
Studies show that most transformation projects fail (about 60%) and there are common failure points leaders need to be attuned to. Read our whitepaper.
This is where we come in. We engineer alignment and action at defining moments, and we do this in 3 days to ensure you get back on track as close to immediately as possible.
Conventional approaches rely on small groups of smart people, such as internal task forces or consulting firms, who require a long time to get through these unavoidable steps. They move interview-by-interview, document-by-document, meeting-by-meeting. A solution via this traditional approach can take up to 6 months to formulate.
Our formula takes 3 days. Our approach makes it possible for your team to get full clarity on the issues, co-create solutions, deeply align, own the outcomes, and get to executing the plan in DAYS. Not months.
What is the Law of Requisite Variety? Simply put, it states that a large complex problem requires a large solution to fully solve for it. Also called the 'many to many rule' it states that the solution will need to be as multi-dimensional or multi-faceted as the challenge.
Leading up to a Syntegration, we work with you to firmly establish the ideal conditions to quickly solve your challenge:
Identify the root of the challenge and precise desired outcomes - and typically form a 'Central Question' from here
Leverage our proprietary AI Predictor tool that determines the range of topics that will lead to resolution of the challenge
The final key ingredient: Requisite Variety. This is another proprietary tool we use that is based in cybernetics, that helps to pinpoint the necessary participants from across your organization's ecosystem - that would hold the expertise and ownership to not only solve, but implement
The heart of our powerful approach is Syntegration. During your 2-day Syntegration experience, you will experience the epitome of cross-functional, inter-disciplinary, large group collaboration. You and your team will work together in a unique and effective way to deconstruct the challenge, rapidly surface everything that matters, absorb and think through all facets in parallel, and culminate by deciding on the best way forward, with strong, broad-based buy-in.
Unlike any other approach - whether it be a focus group, workshop, scrum, etc. - Syntegration engineers the specific, mandatory conditions for rapid solving and co-ordinated action. It is considered state-of-the-art for surfacing a large volume of critical information in a very short period of time; equipping large groups to integrate and synthesize all this critical information in new and innovative ways; and, ultimately, landing breakthrough ideas, strategic pathways and tactics.
The results are holistic, actionable plans—created by an aligned, engaged, and motivated team with ownership and buy-in, every time.
The formula yields significant outcomes:
Clarity where there was no clarity.
Actionable strategies and tactics.
Innovation that was previously not possible.
Highly engaged team members and stakeholders, including partners and customers.
Strengthened trust, new relationships.
And, all of these outcomes and outputs are anchored on an unprecedented value proposition of rapid time acceleration.
We provide a 'board-ready' deliverables package that includes a report and presentation centered around the core problem that you solved. These customized, comprehensive deliverables organize and represent the extensive insights and content generated through the Syntegration. It provides:
A synthesis of the content.
Communication assets that convey a powerful story for employees, board and other key stakeholders.
Where applicable, an action plan with owners, timelines, budget, and dependencies.

Most projects conclude with a one-day session for the core team and decision-makers. It ensures that the solutions and plans generated are formalized and further embedded into the organization. Decision-makers use this session to assign next steps, create budgets, and appoint accountabilities for execution within the larger context of the organization.
