Want a ladder?

We assist organizations that are blocked in some important way; by processes, strategy, or sales


Sometimes effort doesn't equal Desired outcome, no matter the effort

Hi, I'm Michael Clingan. We assist companies that want to expand their markets, improve processes, or to simply "think better together." Often they feel blocked or stuck and aren't making the progress they'd like to make.

We've worked with organizations across many business sectors, though most have been in healthcare, technology, or manufacturing. Others provide education or business services.

Blocked by a particular Challenge?
