Taking a powerful, purposeful, and predictable approach to Innovation

Focused Improvement - The Four F Model for Innovation on Demand

Different isn't always better, but better is always different.

My team and I can help you get from where you are to your next level.

About Us


Our Experience

With a broad background including sales, marketing, product management, information technology, and consulting we've been around the block a few times.   Working with and for companies like GE, Kawasaki Steel, Borg Warner, Nordstrom, and Nationwide I've been fortunate to learn from some of the best.   Now you can get the benefit.


Our Approach - 'teaching how to fish'

Whether you're working to develop a new product, a new service, or make the transition to "how we've always done it" to a customer obsessed digital transformation, we've done it and we can help you.

We have time proven approaches that maximize your impact and minimize the amount of time from "no idea" to "killer idea".   

Best of all, we walk away with you knowing exactly what we did (we'll do it together) and you will be able to continue without us when we're gone.


Why Us?

Business mentors are key—that’s why when it comes to client selection, we’re choosy. We want to give each of you the time and guidance you deserve.  Whether you’re seeking a strategic shift to a customer obsessed culture, or taking a fresh look at your product(s) or service(s) call us today. Together we’ll create and refine your plan for success. We didn’t get here alone. And you don't have go it alone either.  We're here as much as you need us, and we're successful when you're ready to fly on your own.

Focused Improvement: Innovation on Demand


Drive innovation in your organization in a sustainable way

These four steps - The Four Fs, are a simple framework for how you think about tackling problems or pursuing opportunities.

Fall in Love with the Problem

Find out everything you can, just like a young couple in love, discover everything you can and look at everything.

Focus on One

There is always ONE THING that is the biggest issue, opportunity, or distraction.  Let's get that one thing.

Find them All

How many different ways can we do that one thing?  Let's explore the best options and understand the odds, impacts, and trade-offs.

Formulate Your plan

Let's prototype or do a pilot, to prove the concept and approach.

Run the experiment

Now, let's do this!
