Our Mission

We help teams work better together and organizations achieve their full potential.

Do you have an initiative that is running into trouble? Intangibles are the heart of what makes change difficult and sometimes impossible. Usually, the real hurdles are directly associated with people and their perceptions. Before just creating training modules, it is critical to understand WHY the failure is happening, so the mitigation strategies will work.   

  • Personal dynamics and cultural clashes
  • Competing priorities causing friction, distrust, and dissension    
  • Perceptions of power and control
  • Politics and turf conflicts
  • Unplanned consequences and obstacles
  • Fear of change and sense of inadequacy

We are experts at unpacking why change initiatives, new programs, or technology integrations are failing. Often, while there is executive agreement, not all the stakeholder groups are bought in. We figure out the underlying issues and create people-centric solutions. 

We focus on the support mechanisms for success: governance, workforce education, communications, and evaluation and measurement.

Case study

Centralization for Scaling Services

The Challenge

A major healthcare education provider was struggling to scale its services to meet the growing demand. Organizationally, work was divided into five critical business units, each handling its own clients. Together, they were responsible for 25% of the business and over 100+ clients. Independently, they were unable to keep up with the solutions and services they had sold and were responsible to deliver.

The Solution

After analyzing the work flows, we worked with executives and organization leaders to unite the smaller business units into one central team. They focused on 1) solution and service delivery, 2) growing revenues, and 3) increasing operational efficiency.

This was across several areas of eLearning development and continuing education. This new model leveraged the talents of the five original business leaders to develop business cases, create financial plans, enhance existing solutions, enter new markets, and generally support each other to achieve key success factors for the organization’s clients.

The Results

The team was able to scale work efforts for +100 clients and Higher Education institutions as well as +20 international organizations in the U.S., U.K., U.A.E. Qatar, and Australia.

  • Achieved 57% growth in operating earnings due to annual cost avoidance and improved expense planning while maintaining annual revenues
  • Supported the delivery of programs +10,000 Continuing Education credits to healthcare professionals 
  • Pioneered the first Virtual Hospital to educate nursing students using a real Clinical Information System (CIS) with Metropolitan Community College (MCC)
  • Negotiated several strategic alliances with business partners to create a ‘first of its kind’ point-to-consumer transaction model extending services and solutions to new markets and expanding the distribution model.

Client Praise

“We were fortunate to engage Shawn Foley to head up a large project. The project, to design and develop a program for review and approval of continuing education required by regulators, was complex with several moving parts that still needed definition.

Shawn quickly developed a project plan in measurable chunks and established a good working relationship with the client staff and committee. He developed the various rules, policies, processes, forms, evaluation rubrics, and ultimately a user guide for CE course providers that were reviewed and refined by the client group during scheduled meetings.

The entire project was completed in a matter of weeks, on the aggressive timeline and within budget. He then assisted in an informed handoff to the implementation team. We are engaging Shawn for another project. He’s a master at what he does.”
