Integrative Choices

Gain and maintain

strategic momentum

We utilize a human-centered approach to strategy that requires making explicit choices – to do some things and not others – and to evolve your organization around these choices. This integrated set of choices uniquely positions you to create sustainable advantage and superior value relative to your competition.


Gain and maintain
strategic momentum

All organizations desire growth: in revenue, reach, or impact. It is a natural way to stay relevant, but also to help deepen commitment to a shared cause. We focus on growth through focused strategy development to create a vibrant, highly-engaged community. This way, new value serves growth in multiple ways: in diversifying and growing revenue, but also in embedding a growth mindset that re-energizes community.

Learning communities

Gain and maintain

strategic momentum

Soundly designed strategy is executable to align with organizational capacities and capabilities. This sometimes takes new capabilities (existing, acquired, or via partnership) that require learning. Changes happens in community and takes buy-in, investment, ongoing commitment, and a shared belief in the future. The organization of the future is a participatory enterprise.

Usable outcomes

Gain and maintain

strategic momentum

Properly implemented, good strategy can serve as a vehicle for partnerships, a venue for driving innovation, and a currency for community engagement. Our most positive results will be richly integrative and robustly aligned throughout the organization. Ultimately, integrative outcomes are platforms for action, connection, and culture-building.


Gain and maintain
strategic momentum

Good story drives strategy and organizational priorities. Developing and sustaining a narrative throughout the process is vital. It serves as ballast for organizational buy-in and helps to anchor strategy execution. Narrative supplies momentum and supplies authentic voice to sustain the organization through periods of unpredictable change.
