Insigniam is the management consultancy for executives who have an imperative to deliver outcomes that are a break from the past—business as usual isn’t enough and breakthrough performance is the standard.
Over 30 years ago, Insigniam pioneered the field of organizational transformation and breakthrough performance. In the three decades since, executives of large and complex organizations around the world have called upon Insigniam to support their enterprise to produce outcomes that are critical, necessary, and unprecedented given the history of the organization and its current skills, resources, performance record, and circumstances.
Our clients are already successful executives who have bold and inspiring commitments for the future of their enterprises. Our work is not advisory. Using our proprietary methodology, we partner with our clients to design and/or execute initiatives that generate measurable and remarkable value with a quantifiable return on investment.
Our name expresses the heart of who we are as a consulting firm. Insigniam is inspired from the Latin usage of Insignia—“We shall act to make remarkable”—where we refers to the people in any enterprise endeavor. Remarkable are the quantum leaps in results—true breakthroughs, even transformations.
Areas where clients use Insigniam:
Insigniam is not the consultancy you hire to continue conducting your business as you have in the past. Executives use Insigniam when it is imperative to produce breakthrough results or a transformation. Examples of benchmark areas that we use for ROI analysis include greater market share, increased earnings per share, revenue growth, enhanced margins, reduced costs, speed-to-market, increased employee engagement, and elevated customer satisfaction.
What do we mean by breakthrough?
- Specific, measurable results that are unprecedented given historical trends, current resources, and circumstances
- Generating that result requires a fundamental shift in thinking and approach—often initially viewed as “We cannot do this”
- Breakthroughs are intentionally delivered through commitment and collaboration
- The outcome is generated in a manner that is sustainable and does not sacrifice quality, integrity, safety, or well-being of products, services, or relationship
Discrete breakthrough results produced in the near term with velocity
Identify and execute on strategic frontiers and other sources of new value to rapidly generate higher revenue and better margins

Insigniam’s methodology is that forthright.
Performance is not simply a matter of knowledge, competency, ability, or rewards. If it were, millions of people who know exactly what to do to get projects done on time would deliver them on time, legions of managers who know what to do to manage change would be delivering successful change initiatives, and all the executives who know what to do to lead their enterprises would have high performing enterprises. And, yet that is not what is actually happening. Unfortunately, knowing what to do and having skills to do it does not always deliver breakthrough or transformational results.
Perhaps more decisively, performance is determined by the background of beliefs, assumptions, traditions, rules, and presuppositions that form our frame of reference. This context determines how we see the world, how we think, and therefore, how we act. Insigniam Consulting is unique in that we address these potent, and, at times, unseen influences as the starting point for breakthrough performance.
The Insigniam Breakthrough Method
Underpinning our consulting methodology are these four basic elements.
The current (embedded and hidden) set of beliefs, assumptions, truths, and unwritten rules that determine what people see as possible, the actions they take, and the results they produce.
The pervasive drive for what is familiar and known. Without disengaging the prevailing mindset or system of beliefs, anything new will immediately be retranslated into the old way of thinking and acting, or will just be ignored.
A new framework with which to approach the intended work area. Breakthrough and/or innovation tools are used to facilitate very stimulating, focused, new conversations designing the desired future and establishing true commitment.
Execute and deliver the intended measurable results quickly through proprietary methods for Breakthrough Projects, delivering innovation, rapid work redesign, transformational leadership, enabling successful change, and workforce engagement.
Changing the Rules of the Game
The last decade undeniably proved to us that winning in business requires the ability to effectively and quickly manage disruption; agility and speed were the passwords into the winner’s circle. But if yesterday’s winners were the masters of responding effectively to a changing world, who are the winners of tomorrow? How do you gain a competitive edge in a world where leaders and companies have already developed the ability to embrace and integrate ongoing change?
Today, to lead among leaders is to be the person or enterprise who sets the course, invents the rules, and rewrites conventions—the GameChangerSM.
Six common characteristics of GameChangersSM:
- AUDACIOUS – bold and breaks from common logic of what can be done
- BROAD SCOPE – used, enjoyed by, or helps entire sectors or segments
- HIGH IMPACT – touches people’s lives or the world in a big way
- PIONEERING – something novel (not done successfully before) that creates value
- EMBRACED – the idea, product, or service is accepted on a wide scale
- CHANGES THE LANDSCAPE – initiates and gives rise to a new set of opportunities
