" The prevailing style of management must undergo transformation. A system cannot understand itself. The transformation requires a view from the outside."
W. Edwards Deming , The New Economics
The Rendle Company helps craft the present — and shape the future — enterprise and its leadership story. This is facilitated from an "outside-in" perspective in partnership with a leadership team.
Our world has changed. We all know that. The question is, what do we do next? I help leaders, their teams and organization address, answer and execute on such questions from a business ecology perspective.
Enterprises exist within a complex system— a business ecology of people and resources, internal and external to the firm. A business ecology is always adapting and emerging, as in the natural world. I help envision, build, transform and grow such integrated and resilient enterprises through the emergentz℠ nature-inspired systems approach to strategy.
Strategy + Systems Thinking
Work with leaders and their teams to develop and implement an enterprise's vision, strategy and value chain.
Assess. Advise. Assist. Systems.
Work with organizations and their leadership teams to effectively navigate and execute:
New business models
Intellectual property commercialization
Immerse with the client organization to co-create and execute recommendations — not “write a white paper and run.”
Natural systems are adaptive. Human led systems often resist adaptation, unless forced by crisis.
Addressing and adapting to critical truths is fundamental to the leadership and enterprise journey.
A journey I facilitate and support, including asking and help to address the difficult questions — which can often uncover new opportunities.
Collaborate in development and execution of initiatives, ecosystems and new ventures.
In the age of curation by algorithm and LinkedIn the complexity of the times is most effectively served by personally curated, high trust and aligned human relationships.
Work with leaders and their teams to curate, convene and connect ecosystems tailored and aligned with their enterprise vision, strategy and growth.
Work with leaders, enterprises and systems to envision and create their future.
emergentz℠ consultative and facilitative cohorts help individuals and enterprises adapt to the present and create the future enterprise system.

I have been there both as a CEO and working with Boards and executive teams, thus brings both an experienced and consultative perspective to leadership challenges and demands.
A creative systems thinker. I have a natural ability to see beyond obvious horizons for systems approaches and solutions to a business opportunity or dilemma.
My skills and passions include curating and connecting original thinkers and doers to deliver solutions to complex problems. I have worked with cross-cultural, geographic and generational teams – in person and virtually – for over two decades.
