About Banner Cross

Banner Cross uses a whole systems design approach to business transformation that starts with deep foundational knowledge of what it takes to start up and sustain a business in the Pacific Northwest Region. Our systemic focus considers the people, processes, structures, information and technologies required to enable small, urban, and multicultural companies and their leadership to not only get better but “get different!” (Roger Martin, Dean of Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto). Getting different means learning how to turn your information into knowledge, attracting funding and high-performance people to your business, having a vigorous and innovative workplace, and sustaining a dynamic and creative design process.

Banner Cross provides individuals, small businesses, and corporations a balanced approach to leadership and management development. Our leadership approach takes an entrepreneurial perspective and focuses on innovation and creativity. Our management approach takes a risk mitigation perspective and focuses on controls and constraints. Banner Cross’ consulting services are custom designed. Contact us today and let us know how we can help your organization improve its performance.
