who we are

We are management consultants dedicated to the notion that alignment of organizational design, processes, culture and actions are essential to executing strategy. Our work is built on the idea that language and narrative are the key to organizational alignment and ultimately the foundation for individual and organizational success. It’s in narratives that we frame how we work together, and innovate ideas, practices, services and products. We deliver custom support to our clients to enable exceptional performance.
