Maximial Growth. Minimal Drama.

The Manage to Lead Immersion Program provides insider best practices for CEOs and their top teams to work in high-performance mode with their board.


“Within 2 years we actually executed our initial 5-year plan”
— Erik Palmer, Gemcom CFO
The Alignment Methodology
Your Case is the Course
The C-Team will identify top Value Creation Drivers and launch and report on Strategic Initiatives in a manner that is easy for you to govern and guide from Idea-to-Benefit using tools and a framework that can be used repeatedly as the organization scales.

Alignment is Clarity Reached Jointly

The Manage to Lead Immersion Program guides C-Teams to get and stay aligned. If your C-Team isn't internally aligned — or worse, not aligned with you and the board — you all are going to under-perform.
Alignment produces incredible results:
  • Increased operating margins
  • Faster growth in less time
  • Improved communications
  • Smoother decision making
  • Agility to adapt
  • Positive interpersonal relationships

Operations mire down without alignment:

  • Delays in planning and execution
  • Constant "fires" and petty drama that
    diminishes productivity
  • Meetings that don't move the ball forward
  • Unlear expectations and no accountability
  • Reduced performance and communication
  • Turbulent turnover

“We didn't even realize that entropy had crept in until we began using the IntelliVen tools and methods. We were able to get true alignment using the MtL techniques we still rely on years later.”
— Reid Jackson, Unison CEO
Create Maximal Value
While immersed in the MtL program, your management team will:
Determine Value Creation Drivers (VCDs)
Initial program modules guide the management team to determine what Value Creation Drivers (VCDs) will achieve the maximum value in the shortest time with the least cost and risk.
Align Internally and Externally
The program structure ensures both that the management team is internally aligned on the VCDs as well as aligned with the board where alignment is clarity reached jointly.


Develop and Execute Strategic Initiatives
The immersive program directs the management team to identify, develop, and communicate a short list of Strategic Initiatives and accountabilities required to execute on the VCDs aggressively and profitably.
Drive Value Through Consistent Growth
Management teams graduate the program by launching a reporting and governance cadence to ensure timely execution of their Strategic Initiatives, indicating they are ready and able to drive growth.
"We have benefited greatly from working with IntelliVen. We have gotten much more clear and aligned, implemented a Do & Review framework, benefited from outside help, become more focused, and absolutely grown."
— Robert Acosta, Ventera Founder and CEO
