We help managers and executives work cross-functionally: success requires everyone working together.

Great generalists use the standard terms and tools of management to unblock communication and break down silos. They can then improve profits by getting everyone to collaborate on key metrics: sales growth, productivity, retention, quality and customer satisfaction.  Hear our members prove the value of generalists in our 5-part podcast series.

Collaborate effectively

Our GMs Index of Terms is the universal language of management.  It puts on one screen simple definitions and approved best practices.  It lets everyone understand and appreciate each other's contribution, breaking down silos and accelerating decision-making.  It's free.  Video

Delegate with confidence

Our GMs Toolkit holds 14 tested 1-page tools that lets cross-functional teams perform and report on their best work.  If everyone uses the same tools, terms and practices, executives can be confident projects will be on time, on budget and yield the promised ROI.  It's empowering.
