Workshop Facilitator:
Robert Porter Lynch, CA-AM
President | The Warren Company

Robert is a passionate champion for unlocking the power of collaboration in alliances, high performance teamwork, innovation, and trust. He has been on a quest to address three fundamental issues at the core of mankind's future on this planet:

First: How can people of greatly different backgrounds and beliefs come together without destroying each other? More importantly, could they actually work together synergistically to create and innovate?

Second: Is there a transcendent "design architecture" to transform whole organizations, value networks, or even industries that can be applied across a multitude of cultures and boundaries with highly successful & predictable results?

Third: Could we reliably diagnose key causative factors, predict outcomes, and prescribe corrective actions to produce extraordinary results consistently?

The answers to Robert's life-long quest have resulted in a holistic "Architecture of Collaborative Excellence," which holds the promise to boost the power of strategic alliances by a quantum leap into a new generation of enlightened realism.
