"Simply amazing. Totally participatory by design without having to silence or purposely amplify the participants. It is a structured process that if followed will prove to be successful." 

-Ian Johnson, MBA

"This training provides the framework for doing strategic planning that includes all voices from an organization - from the CEO to the boots on the ground - and values all voices equally. I like that groups are encouraged to think big first and then work from that towards a plan for how to get there. It's a creative, barrier-busting method for strategic planning."
