Bio

Having been involved in a lot of well-intentioned innovation and change initiatives in industry, government and small businesses, I have found that people have an astonishing ability to miscommunicate and misunderstand one another, and often work at cross-purposes to the very things they are trying to accomplish.

My objective has been and continues to be finding ways to help people improve their ability to build shared understanding, so they can better coordinate joint action on things that matter to them.

In 1993 I founded XPLANE, the visual thinking company, to help people develop shared understanding, so they can make better, faster decisions, and work better together to create more lasting, sustainable impact.

I have written three books on design, change and innovation.
