Strategy and culture — when done well — is a collective inquiry process where you and your partners explore the following questions:
Your goal is to align around good, thoughtful answers to these questions… and to hold them lightly, as your answers will evolve as you do the work. These toolkits are designed to help groups and individuals do exactly that.

The Goals / Success Spectrum is a powerful tool for developing good strategic goals as well as metrics for tracking those goals. It’s also useful as a visioning exercise.

Planning is a central part of any strategy or culture process. The Roadmap toolkit helps you flexibly and concretely explore different scenarios, enabling you to gut check your goals and vision.
