Our Purpose

To accelerate the process of people and businesses reaching their goals.


purpose

The reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

values

A person's principles or standards of behaviours; one's judgement of what is important.

Our Values

Do the Right Thing

Do the right thing is an overarching value as to how people should do business with one another and how people should treat one another in general. Honesty, respect, good character, and integrity is at the foundation of this value for TimeLine10.

Big Results

At TimeLine10 we want to take on big projects, big challenges, and provide big results. We need to be knowledgeable, innovative, and capable for the organizations we serve.

Will & Grit

Big results takes hard work, engrained in TimeLine10 is a roll-up-our-sleeves mentality to serve organizations that need our help. It is not about just meeting expectations, but exceeding expectations whenever possible.

Agility

Being agile is about being able to understand, think, and move quickly. Exactly how we want to serve organizations and help them grow.

Keep it Real

Keep it real has a twofold meaning for TimeLine10. The first is to stay in our sweet spot, to not take on projects/clients that we are not a good fit for. The second is our proposed solutions and provided results should be easy to understand, if the explanation seems to be a stretch or seems complicated then we are somehow not doing the right thing.

Who We Work With ...

The organizations that we work with typically fall into one of the following three scenarios:

1

Organizations that are growing faster than anticipated. Their revenue has spiked in a short time period from being measured in hundreds-of-thousands into being measured in millions. These organizations need support with scaling-up in a structured way and balancing risk while doing so.

2

Organizations that have hit a ceiling in terms of they have already been through signficant growth, but there is another level they can get to - they just need additional support to get there. In many cases, this scenario is related to the business outgrowing its current internal capacity - which may be related to space, people, process, resources, or a combination of multiple variables.

3

Organizations that have decided it is just time to get better. Sometimes this is a voluntarily decision triggered by something new or a perspective change related to opportunitnies. Sometimes this is more of a forced decision in that change is a need not just a want; this scenario can be triggered by a shift/incident in the marketplace and/or within the organization.

Our "Organizational & People Development" streams are not constrained to any industry or any size/type of organization. These streams include:

  • Strategy & Execution
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Leadership Development

Our "Scale-Up Capacity" streams are more focused on serving industrial organizations that are manufacturers, distributors, and/or providing a technical service. These streams include:
