Creating enduring solutions through collaboration

 

We are specialists in Collaborative Governance: Decision making for complex times.

Working with leaders within private industry and government who face difficult decisions around complex organisational and project issues, we provide:
  • Clarity on the decision making process
  • Guidance to make progress in the face of controversy and complexity
  • A new way of thinking about how to work with stakeholders to get your work done
  • A pathway to successful resolution
  • Better outcomes, smarter decisions, lasting solutions
Our approach is useful in any situation involving multiple diverse stakeholders - organisations, agencies, people, institutions - and those stakeholders need to be part of the solution.

Power of Co Guides Governmental, Organizational Leaders to Discover the Best Answers to their Worst Problems

We've launched The Power of Co: The Smart Leaders? Guide to Collaborative Governance to North American readers.


The launch coincides with a series of workshops presented by Vivien Twyford in Toronto, Ont.; Calgary, B.C.; and Missoula, Mont., about tackling tough problems facing governments, communities and businesses through the power of effective decision making that underpins collaborative governance.


"Antiquated political and corporate decision making systems can't solve the issues we face. In most cases, they are crumbling under the demands by the public to be heard and to participate in the processes."
