We create solutions, not problems.

We’re moving past a world-view that says the only way to win is if someone else loses. Diverse stakeholders all win together through multi-sector alliances and a commitment to consensus-based solutions.

  • Multi-sector: It’s easy to build alliances of like-minded organizations to advocate for a pre-determined solution. Solutions for contentious issues require expert conveners who bring together stakeholders from all sides and perspectives.
  • Consensus Solutions: Consensus requires each stakeholder to set aside their individual pre-defined solutions, and opens the door to creative new pan-partisan solutions.
  • Unparalleled Expertise: We help healthcare stakeholders through every step of the process to develop alliances that create solutions and drive meaningful action. We provide expertise in:

We assess the stakeholders critical to success and bring the right people to the table to engage in the consensus-development process.

We are experts at breaking down the most complex issues in an organized way so stakeholders can engage with those issues. As an independent but informed voice, we guide stakeholders through the difficult conversations that are needed to move the alliance forward.

As a trusted neutral in the alliance process, we help identify, and move stakeholders to agreement on, creative solutions to the most difficult challenges.

Once consensus is achieved, we are your strategic leader to help you drive a strategy that puts the alliance’s consensus into action.

Correctly establishing the alliance’s operating and decision-making principles up front is critical to success. We provide best-in-class infrastructure—from technology platforms to conference room facilities tailored for collaboration—and manage all aspects of alliance administration so you can focus on the substance of the alliance’s work.
