Our Magic Formula

A solution orientation is systematically designed into our company through our expertise, our consultants, and our process.

We aspire to be a thought leader in learning and the preeminent organizational learning consulting group. We specialize in applying research- and experience-based learning approaches to strategic and tactical business challenges. We use learning methods that work, drawing on the immense body of knowledge in the learning profession to apply the appropriate strategies and media to match the particular needs of your learners and the constraints of your business environment.

We aspire to be valued assets, trusted partners, and helpful solutions in any project or situation. Consulting is a highly-complex job relying not only on skill and experience in our profession, but on a broad range of other skills and qualities such as interpersonal mastery and personal authenticity and maturity. We look for professionals who are bright, conscientious, collaborative, and passionate about the learning, then nurture their capabilities through competency-driven training on a broad range of skills, such as business analysis, relationship building, and project management.

We have managed hundreds of learning design projects using a systematic and collaborative approach to ensure the project is completed with optimal effectiveness, efficiency, reliability, and flexibility. Our design process translates strategic aspirations into tangible outputs and deliverables, and we then manage development of those outputs and deliverables to become the right products for your organization. We work with you to align stakeholders, define the scope, design and develop the solution, monitor progress, and communicate constantly to ensure we are going in the right direction.
