This is how we do it

We know how experts think, how they work, and how they excel. This insight enables us to quickly hone in on how experts operate in their domains and unique contexts. Eliciting expertise is the first step toward protecting it, crafting that keys that enable it, and helping others accelerate toward achieving it.

Organizations turn to us when they need to know their experts more deeply. And when they want to develop their own capabilities for understanding expertise. Through consulting, training and coaching, we help organizations gain an appreciation for the expertise that glues their operations together.

Don’t lose it

No organization can defeat Father Time. Experts will retire. Or move on to other opportunities. The loss of expertise creates havoc, diminishes the capacity to innovate, and disrupts the learning pathways of up-and-comers. We know how to mitigate losing it, before it’s too late.

We help organizations consider where they are most vulnerable to knowledge loss and what we can do to protect against it. Our unique-in-the-industry focus on expertise enables them to develop more than just a list of tasks or contacts — we capture and transfer the expertise that ensures sustainability and growth.

Bake it in

Complexity demands control — control of our data and our experience. But exerting control often imposes systems that disable expertise. We apply what we know about experts to designing and evaluating systems that enable expertise and learning experiences that create future experts.

We design software interfaces and evaluate current systems and workplaces to find leverage points for introducing revolutionary capabilities. In healthcare, unmanned systems, intelligence analysis – and even the White House Situation Room – our approach to designing for expertise has deployed next-generation systems to critical workplaces.

Mental models tell us how the world works and what to expect from it. Expert mental models offer a richness that empowers their proficiency. Problem is, it’s difficult to know precisely what sorts of mental models people have, let alone whether or how they are changing.

Our revolutionary learning assessment platform, Sero!, is bringing the power of Concept Maps to the challenge of assessing mental models.
