For 17 years, Sightlines Group has been a trusted advisor to organizations taking on our biggest challenges in purpose-driven work and systems change.
We help organizations create the tools they need to make an impact, and the culture and processes they need to sustain high levels of growth and adaptation.
We work closely with a limited number of clients at a time. We help clients (1) develop custom software to understand, measure, and communicate their impact, (2) build processes where data and feedback make possible continuous adaptation, and (3) build individual skills and a positive workplace culture that make the foregoing possible.
Sightlines Group was founded by Chris Barber in 2001.
Because our view is inherently a systems view, one of the first themes we'll touch on is the counter-intuitive or emergent nature of the systems we humans create. Few stories drive this point home more than Stanley Milgram's efforts to understand how so many people could be complicit in the Holocaust, through his famous Obedience studies conducted at Yale in the 1960s.
