You can't collaborate without common tools and a common language.  Miscommunication wastes at least 10%* of time and payroll.  It is the key reason projects fail and people quit.


Our kit of 1-page management tools is written in a standard language so departments can communicate and collaborate effectively: see The GM's Toolkit and The CMTP Index.  A culture of collaboration busts silos, avoids costly errors and attracts talented people. It is deeply satisfying.

We are the standards body for general management, born out of a pilot with the US Small Business Administration.  Our common sense terms, tools and training have been tested by hundreds of managers from large and small organizations in every sector.



As a manager, you can execute your work knowing you have clear priorities and the informed support of every department.   As an executive, you can delegate with confidence to well-rounded managers who collaborate on their own.  If you manage a franchise or dealer network, you can be confident they have strong management skills and are sharing best practices.

Specializing in Generalists

In this age of specialists, our members often have to be generalists, coordinating the work of many departments.  Our terms, tools and training let these managers get everyone headed in the same direction. 

Members often start with our Table of Priorities™ or two-hour Question Map training.

Breakthrough in Clarity

The CMTP Index is the first standard framework for general management. It puts clear definitions, rated resources and best practices onto one screen.  It’s a library, a utility and a curriculum for management development.

As our first member said, Now I'm sure we're not missing anything!




Clarity.   Confidence.   Collaboration.
