Stuck in Software?

Grow systems leadership. Deliver transformation.

Get Unstuck

We help systems leaders and learning-driven teams … transform what matters.

Are you stuck in software that no longer meets your evolving needs? Perhaps you’ve attempted a “digital transformation”.  You’ve adopted microservices, Agile, DevOps, event streams, cloud native platforms, infrastructure as code … and yet, you haven’t transformed anything.

Do teams struggle to work across technological boundaries? The goal is to create dynamic, learning teams that drive innovation, yet decisions get constantly stuck in the mud.

You’ve hit the iceberg that sinks most transformations: We don’t think in systems. 

We help you avoid that iceberg. We approach transformation from the inside out, shifting the way teams think, communicate and organize to match the system you want to build.

We also dive deep into the tech, translating strategy into technology decisions that actually transform. We encourage smart adoption of modern tools.

We can partner with you to facilitate change, in roles like systems architect or enterprise (systems) architect, program or engineering lead, Agile coach, DevOps consultant … whatever works in your circumstance. Together, we create holistic, iterative systems transformation and learning teams that can carry you into the future.

Our real world experiences, with The Economist, The Wikimedia Foundation, Pfizer, Memorial Sloan Kettering, Global Strategy Group and others have taught us hard lessons. We can help you discover what works for you. We also teach others through keynotes and workshops around the world. Our mission is helping paradigm shifters lead in the right direction
