What We Do
Other consultants force-fit you into their models, their frameworks and their preferred way of working. Best practices aren't. Paradigms don't shift. Core competencies need to be yours.
We get that. We design every engagement around what you need, not how we work. We go deep to find the right solutions. Your right solutions.

Best Practices Won’t Get You Strategic Success
It is an article of faith that organizations need to adopt best practices in order to be strategically successful. Deciding to follow the crowd seems safe, easy and proven. In many instances, that perspective is not only wrong but dangerous. Here’s why.
How To Hire A Strategic Planning Consultant
Strategic planning is about making a major commitment to your future. Finding the right consultant to guide you is therefore a critical decision. And yet, too often, not enough attention up front results in a painful hiring process at best, and the wrong fit at worst.
Facilitating Meaningful Workshops By Design
A recent meeting participant suggested that short workshops are the only way a group can get meaningful discussion happening. By extension, they perceive that long workshops are simply show-and-tell sessions. May experience says that they’ve been railroaded in the past, and are being misguided today.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Our clients think we’re one of the best-kept secrets among Toronto consulting firms.
Interthink was instrumental in guiding a multi-year implementation effort that has transformed how they City manages projects. Process, templates, training and software came together in a solution that dovetails with our culture. Success in this effort was the result of Mark Mullaly's diligence, attention to detail and ability to secure and maintain the respect of staff at all levels.
The Corporate Strategic Plan developed by Interthink has had a significant impact on our organization. This plan provides a modern vision to help set the course for the next twenty years. Working in partnership and member municipalities was critical to allow the plans to dovetail with one another. We have built a better understanding of our long-term direction but also an improved relationship with our member municipalities.
The City of Spruce Grove was very fortunate to engage Mark Mullaly in the development of its corporate planning program. Mark worked extensively with the City's Leadership Team and City Council to create an integrated corporate planning process that unifies our long term strategic direction and drives all business and financial decisions for governance and administration. The program was eagerly adopted and utilized by the organization largely due to Mark's ability to engage participants, guide change and implement robust and usable process.
Mark goes above and beyond and always exceeds my expectations, a rarity in consultants. He is as vested in our success as we are! Mark is a pleasure to work with and can ask tough questions and present challenging ideas in a way that engages the audience and makes them want to help solve the problem. We have been thrilled to be able to work with Mark over the past 5 years and hope to continue to work together in the future!
We have had the pleasure and good fortune to work with exceptional organizations on a number of different engagements that address different challenges, opportunities and organizational imperatives.
