The Institute is a Silicon Valley think tank working with leaders and corporations on their Purpose and the Purpose of their organization. Since our inception in 1996 we have held that Purpose is the greatest driver of Innovation, the True North that brings alignment, or Integration, and stretches one to think of lasting Impact.
The Head of a Think Tank, Hands of a Business, Heart of Philanthropy. ®
We are also a growing community of entrepreneurs-for-change, social (ad)venturers who are finding creative ways to use their business and professional skills to leave a positive footprint on the world. 400 people have been trained in The Institute’s frameworks for Repurposing Business, and have worked with nearly 300 organizations around the world. We contribute organizational and intellectual property, and an extensive training program, and our community contributes human capital. Together we make an Impact.
The Institute for Innovation, Integration & Impact, Inc. was founded in 1996 by Brett and Lyn Johnson. Prior to that Brett spent 14 years with Price Waterhouse, was a partner at KPMG Peat Marwick, in a national strategy consulting practice. He then led a team at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) working on business and IT strategy, business reengineering, IT reengineering, and customer value creation. He saw the need to change the way consultants and clients worked together to one where advisors collaborated and empowered their clients.
We believe that everyone wants to have an Impact – this is true for corporations and individuals. In order to create a lasting Impact, one has to Innovate, Invest, and then Integrate by aligning the entire organization behind a very clear and compelling Purpose.
