One day of planning for a year of outstanding performance!

I'm still at it, but I made a strategic decision five years ago to only work on the projects I find most intriguing.  I guess that's the definition of semi-retirement, so I guess I am.  But I'm still pretty busy, traveling about a third of the 100,000 miles I used to do annually.

So if you have a really interesting project, give me a call.

Now that I'm home more, I can write more.  And that is my passion these days. I'm in the final stages of editing, The Memoirs of an Unconventional Revolutionary and deep into a textbook, Reinventing Organizations.  The memoir should be done by December, 2017 and will be distributed freely as an I-book through this site.  Don't look for the test to go on ale until the middle of 2018.

If you have a question or just want to talk about ways to make organizations better for any one who uses them, give me a call, send an email.

Good luck!



One organization's challenges!

I help organizations improve their performance. 

Through planning it is possible to find just the right balance between an organization’s structure and the culture that supports it.  With some training it is even possible to help people work effectively and happily within that structure and culture. 

For 35 years I have helped businesses, governmental agencies and non-profit organizations break through to significant achievements that made a difference to shareholders, employees and clients alike.

It takes some effort to build an really effective organizations.  There needs to be a unifying and motivating focus.  There must be a disciplined commitment to stay in focus.  And everyone must be on the lookout to recognize opportunity when it comes and to take the opportunity to seize it. 

The most important challenge facing any enterprise is its ability to sustain itself into the future, recognizing and grasping advantage when it comes; overcoming risks at its approach.  

Read through these pages to find out how we can work together to map out the next few years of unprecedented performance.


By the way, don't let the name fool you.  Washington State is my home and the Pacific Northwest has been the center of my business, but I fly 100,000 miles a year, working with clients throughout the US, Canada and Mexico (with an occasional sidetrip to Micronesia and the western Pacific).
