Organic communication, technology roots

Organic communication is an approach that deliberately examines an entire ecosystem, so all the elements surrounding a program, project or plan are considered.

It is neither top down, nor from the ground up, but rather a holistic practice. It  recognizes that even a simple conversation between two people takes place in an environment, at a certain place and time—all of which affect the experience.

Digging deep to ensure technology serves a strategic purpose

With so many technology tools available inside and outside the enterprise, it’s easy to grab onto the latest bright and shiny application as a way to solve a communication challenge.

We dig deep to unearth purpose, barriers and desired outcomes and craft a strategic plan that ensures the right tools are being deployed for the desired results.

By taking the time to lay the groundwork, and by employing technology strategically, we are planting the seeds for success.
