Helping You Anticipate And Optimize for the Known Unknowns For Better Operation.

Producing extraordinary organizational results requires extraordinary strategy. We offer strategic planning and all of the associated services to ensure you deliver unprecedented results.


Our typical strategic planning retreat takes place over 3 full days and includes significant pre-work. The component activities include crafting a future-based vision, scenario planning, the Merlin Process™ of goal-setting, strategy mapping and assignment of key initiative ownership.

and Core Values Alignment

These are custom programs that usually include a preliminary culture survey and analysis, and a workshop to design both ontological/ethical and strategic core values, and the key behaviors and practices that correspond to them. A main deliverable of these programs is a scorecard to utilize as part of the performance management system.


These are 2-3 day interventions with significant preliminary interviewing designed to attack a significant obstacle and craft a strategy to accomplish the goal it is impeding.


These are programs designed to address specific needs of our clients. Please schedule a call if you believe your project requires this approach.

Culture is the fabric that weaves together your organization. It needs to be optimized for exactly your goals and your strategy. In a strong culture employee retention stays high and everyone behaves in ways that drive results. We can help assess your culture and drive the changes to optimize it.

Goal Setting

The quantified vision is the starting point for the Merlin™ Process. Strategic goals should come from the future, not from past performance. Bridging that gap, between now and the vision’s fulfilment requires time travel. So, we travel with you, to the future, and take a page from Merlin the Magician’s book –walking backwards to the horizon of the strategy. Those numbers become the strategic goals.


You certainly have a clear vision of the future you are creating. But is it specific enough to be quantified? If not, we’d like to help you clarify it. A measurable vision is the best source of truly strategic goals. That’s why we developed our proprietary Visioneer™ process.


Strategy is the plan to accomplish the very toughest goals on the way to your vision. It’s not a set of projects or budgets (although it leads to those). It is an explicit, testable, measurable plan based on your best data and thinking. As experts on strategic planning, execution, and measurement, we can facilitate your team’s strategic planning and ensure it lives in every corner of the organization.
