The LIGHTSTANCE program’s simple brilliance and power emanates from a game-like methodology that captures every detail via powerful software. Each topic is scrutinized for probability, financial impact and velocity. This helps your leadership set priorities at light speed.

Testimonials

  • LIGHTSTANCE provided our leadership team with a fun and engaging method to identify and prioritize our areas of great concern and opportunity.

  • LIGHTSTANCE enabled us to quantify our need for asset accumulation during a period of great potential change. As a public entity, we need strong substantiation regarding the opportunities and risks facing our organization because our mission is founded on public trust.

  • LIGHTSTANCE ‘gamified’ our risk identification process. Our facilitator and the software enabled us to understand the risks to our corporate goals. The upside was that we successfully took on more financial risk for substantial realized reward.

SUCCESS IS IN THE CARDS

Years ago, we started with assessments delivered in a checklist format. A client asked, “How can we make the process more interesting and collaborative for leadership?”

To answer that question, we developed and tested decks of cards with scoring mats and adapted our process, facilitation and software to rapidly engage people with a gamified experience so work seems less like work and more like fun. The results? Client feedback says we nailed it.

 

POWERFUL YET SIMPLE SOFTWARE

Our software supports the LIGHTSTANCE process thanks to the intuitively designed interface. Strategy, goals, opportunities, risks and projects are all linked and calibrated to financial impact. Simplicity means everyone can participate immediately without getting bogged done learning overengineered software. This quickly leads to planning and executing meaningful projects. You can generate robust reports for every goal, opportunity, risk and project to walk into any meeting armed with the most current status of your strategic plan’s implementation.
