Mark and his associates take a systems view of organizations, understanding the links between people, process and technology. Our approach is aimed at improving organizational effectiveness by strengthening leadership at every level. To that end, we have the experience and insight to examine every piece of an organization, from the customer experience to fulfillment and all points in between. Beyond the people systems that power your organization, we can look at your financial, sales, marketing, operations, human resources, and business processes to see if they are in alignment with where you are taking your organization. And if you’re not sure what that picture looks like, our strategic planning process will help you clarify that too.
