Creative solutions and meaningful consensus

Koné Consulting Express Services

Is your team feeling “stuck”, facing organizational change, or experiencing differing priorities? Or, maybe your team simply needs a tune-up or refresher to help build or revive momentum.


Many of you know us from our long-term projects in the public sector; however, we also offer half- and full-day workshops through our Express Services. We’re available to help your team with anything from a consensus workshop, to more in-depth strategic planning and problem solving using Lean principles.

Workshop tools available include Lean principles for strategic development, methodology from the Institute for Cultural Affairs for consensus building, PuMP, and Liberating Structures - collaborative “disruption” approaches. We incorporate a combination of individual, small group, and larger group work to ensure creative solutions and multiple perspectives are honored.

Give our Koné Consulting Express Services a try! For as little as $4,999 your team will be well on its way toward achieving new goals and implementing lasting change. For more information, visit our Express Services page.
