Standards-Based Management


Using standard tools, terms and practices gets everyone speaking the same language and lets executives delegate with confidence.

A Simple, Scalable System

Standards-Based Management is detailed in our book, Atoms & Orchestras. Like musical notation, it gets any size group onto the same page.
