Better Practice™ team performance accelerator

Consulting and management services

Better Practice™ is a unified management and team performance model developed to build reliable and sustainable project team performance. Its purpose is to help you and your team identify and objectify the things that matter together and manage them with grace and agility.

Ideal for distributed, multi-organizational and cross-functional teams, Better Practice™ is compatible with PMBOK®, Six Sigma, Lean, CMM, The Birkman Method®, DiSC®, MBTI® and other respected management models and standards.

Many consultancies sustain themselves by building dependence on their services. We look at this very differently. Everything we do, we can teach you and your teams. This creates a very different kind of relationship and one we think is better.

Whether it is Better Practice™ Certification training, Birkman Assessments and feedback sessions, Process Design and Improvement or Team Membership and Leadership, we are prepared to teach you what we know.

Team Building

Ropes courses and scavenger hunts can be a lot of fun, but team building isn't just about having a good time. We take a different approach to team building. We use The Birkman Method® to help your team members understand themselves and one another better.

We work with our clients to understand their team development needs and design rich experiences that build lasting memories and stronger teams.


Practice Areas

The Individual

Each individual brings her or his own interests, motivation and needs to the team. We use The Birkman Method® to help you better understand the individuals on your team and help them understand themselves and their teammates better.

Managing what matters

What matters to you and your team? What will make you successful and happy? We help you build a common sense about the things that matter most. With a shared language to identify and discuss what matters, you can do something about it... together.

Command & Control

Structures, processes, tools, methods and norms all play a part in whether the team's purpose is carried out and to what extent. Our consultants are skilled at organizational development as well as process definition, design and improvement. We help you build and sustain effective, graceful command and control.

Teamwork

In a symphony orchestra it isn't enough that everyone can read their own music. It isn't enough that they can play their instruments with skill. When that group of individuals shares a common sense, listens and adjusts to one another, the results can be truly extraordinary. This is our mission. Your team is our passion.

Competency management

Knowledge, skills and abilities only matter when applied. Their application is demonstrated competence. We help you identify the competencies that matter most and use that knowledge to make your teams stronger.

Ideas

Ideas matter. High performing teams generate lots of them. We are constantly rethinking our own methods, tools and practices to increase the value we provide to our clients. Better Practice isn't just what we do. It's who we are.
