Welcome to our point of view page, where every month or so we sound off about new insights, inspirations, experiences, old problems with better solutions, our take on what others are saying, and our perspective, plain and simple.

In our experience, accountability based companies don’t happen by chance — they happen by design. And where there’s accountability, there’s trust.

Hopefully, on these pages you’ll find some information, and perhaps some inspiration — all intended to give you an informed point of view on some of the issues and challenges facing today’s business leaders. You may even find some things you can do to build a more accountable work system to deliver your organization’s strategy.

And please, contact us to let us know what you think…
