About Us

As successful companies grow and evolve, they often break because the right framework isn’t in place.

Our mission

DAILY FOCUS

Helping you to grow well

When you’re smaller, your company is easier to manage. You know each person on the team and what they’re doing. But it doesn’t last because with success comes growth, and with growth comes complexity. Growth is a great thing but it means more people; more processes, and more functions. Too often, this growth causes symptoms that have negative effects on company success and culture. Your visibility reduces; things get missed, and efforts are duplicated. Our mission is to help companies grow well while building positive, transparent and empowering cultures that retain staff. Functionally empowers teams to focus on better product and service delivery instead of spot fires caused by poor structure and resource allocation.

BIG PICTURE

A better way

The world has changed and the old organizational design methods don’t work. Rigid and opaque planning is being replaced with fluid and collaborative conversations that evolve as companies do. That’s the kind of planning that we believe will build better companies. As Functionally helps more organizations learn the art of scale and grow without chaos, we are iteratively mapping and documenting a better way to grow that will make its mark in history.
