Total solutions through strategic planning and organizational change and development

Changemaking Systems is a consulting firm that has been guiding organizations in strategic planning and organization change since 1982, when it was founded by John Johnson. We are based in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.

We are about strategy and change. First, positioning an organization so that it can succeed. Second, making changes in such a way that success is achievable. We can help you practice strategic thinking and make plans accordingly. We can also help you organize and discipline your organization to make those plans work.

In business, success comes from competitive achievement through bringing value to the customer repeatedly and by leveraging special capabilities to overcome threats, competition, and challenges.

We work with professional firms, divisions of large corporations, new venture businesses, and entrepreneurial social service agencies, to design and facilitate a comprehensive strategic planning process that is practical for them and totally customized to their unique circumstances.

We work with these same client systems to design an organization that fits the priorities and the interdependencies of the overall strategic plan and the related core business processes. We complement the organization design with guidance in behavior and culture change, team and organization development, and the coaching of leadership that is required to engage members of the organization in making a compelling and shared vision happen.
