We guide management teams of privately held businesses and not for profit organizations to develop, update and implement plans for growth.

Our experience spans 40+ industries, in all sectors of the economy, supporting hundreds of management teams globally.


Strategic planning for a growing organization is similar to a whitewater rafting trip: Preparation is essential. Paddlers learn or practice skills they don’t use every day. It takes a team effort to be successful. And it’s always exciting, usually with an element of the unexpected.


Like a river trip, guides can make the trip seamless and more enjoyable. That's our role, facilitating collaborative meetings and guiding the team to use visual decision frameworks along the way.


You’ll discover that our visual approaches make strategic planning easier by introducing discussions and decision-making at an outline level on stickies. Quick sketches and simple graphics are good ways to communicate concepts as you prepare for strategy discussions and take notes during planning meetings. This means no thick documents to wade through. And stickies can easily be moved around to show their relative importance or priority, which makes the consensus process significantly easier.

You can literally see your growth strategies as they emerge. Then each process phase and all action plans can be documented by snapping a smartphone picture or screenshot of the final version.
