Brief History -
Combining his experience in business consulting and retail management with a doctoral degree in psychology and university teaching, Scott initially created Performance Management as an organizational consulting business back in 1984. Over time, reactions to the unique tools he was developing caused others to want to purchase them -- this became more important and eventually caused a completely new business model. Scott presented his ideas in a paper at a variety of conferences, with the title and focus being, "Working Home, Selling Globally."
The focus of the business changed to designing and selling resources because of a single cartoon we call, "Square Wheels One."
From that beginning, Scott created an interactive series of Square Wheels® and a highly successful process of facilitating involvement and motivation through the use of these illustrations, now numbering more than 300 in all. PMC now sells many complete training packages, programs that include powerpoint illustrations, training and facilitation ideas and even a variety of worksheets.
You can see more about these products at our other website, which overviews all of these products as well as purchasing options (view link) Scott helps companies and consultants do the design work to incorporate his products into unique training and development programs and we sell high impact packages are very reasonable prices. Simple, but powerful and effective. Few people ever forget a presentation that includes his interactive products. And some of our clients have been using our tools for more than 15 years.
Scott's belief in engaging people to enjoy a learning experience so they will more readily retain key points, simultaneously evolved into a deep interest in interactive team building activities. This led to the creation and development of his truly world-class activity, The Search for The Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine. Focused on themes of inter-organizational collaboration, motivation and leadership, it has become one of the leading teambuilding exercises in the world and is used as a component of many leadership development training programs as well as for single large events. It is used by multinational organizations as well as individual consultants and has a global distribution.
