Watershed Partners is a global enterprise that enables new dimensions of performance across any human-made system. Our focus is purely about improving and accelerating human performance and optimizing organizational fitness with emphasis on cultural transformation.
Watershed achieves these outcomes by blending high magnitude collaborative events with high frequency engagements and bespoke technology platforms custom created with each individual client and scope in mind and delivered inside carefully considered working environments.
1. Co-design Events
- A route forward and a solution
- Alignment around a new direction
- Momentum to deliver change
We create a transformational learning experience to rapidly align a large group of people around a future direction, collaboratively discover a common strategic purpose, discover new possibilities for solving a problem, or diagnosing evolving needs of large complex ecosystems.
We use a bespoke mix of proven methods, technology and tools delivered through 1-3 day events of anywhere from 15-3000 people.
These are not workshops as you know them. They are transformational learning experiences.
- An implemented and integrated solution
- Sustained alignment around the future direction and implementation of the solution
- Ongoing commitment and momentum to deliver the change
- Leadership development
We bring your people together to get to the heart of the problem you are facing: exploring and understanding it from different perspectives to create common ground and shared understanding.
We then create a framework within which you can design your own solutions to these problems.
Solutions that you love, because you have designed them; and own, because you have created them.
- A new way of working embedded in your organization
- An organization's capacity to self-organize, rapidly align and optimize
- A workforce driven by passion and purpose
- A team of your people upskilled in our method and process to sustain the change
- An organization fit for the changes and challenges of the 21st century
Transformation is difficult and messy work that often seems impossible. By working together, we can make the impossible, possible. In a period of 6 months we re-orient your organization to enable a new level of performance.
We blend technology and cultural change expertise; high impact co-design events and; leadership development, to mobilize your organization behind your new direction. We hold you to account on your own commitments. We nurture a symbiotic relationship; we ensure you are on the road to success; and then we step away and watch you own your success.
