Model  &  Method


Model To Predict Sustainable and Profitable Growth Prospects

The Holistic Company ModelTM predicts stakeholder outcomes and the future profitability and growth prospects of a company through an objective, company-wide assessment for two conditions.

  1. Holistic Companies maintain an equilibrium state that balances the incentives of all stakeholders.
  2. Holistic Companies are financially sustainable for a time horizon all stakeholders align on.


The System To Build A Holistic Company

The Spiral StairwayTM is an insightful, comprehensive, and actionable guide written for critical-thinking CEOs, executives, supervisors, and employees. It creates a system to build sustainable, holistic companies that exist to balance the incentives of customers, investors, employees, partners, and society at large.

The cohesively dovetailed methodology ties together all underlying components and principles necessary to answer the question – How must we build and manage a company?
