About Us About Us About Us

We help you see the big picture

The Grove Consultants International is a San Francisco-based consultancy and publisher, founded in 1977 by David Sibbet. The Grove offers a complete range of services: award-winning tools and trainings, visual facilitation, communication design, and organization change. We are leaders in using large-scale visualization in real time for strategy, leadership, and team development.

The Grove's approach is rooted in creating panoramic, interactive graphic environments that foster innovation, collaboration and action. Our consultants and tools support organizations, teams, and individuals to envision and achieve change.

The Grove was among the first in the field of organization development to use visual techniques, and we have developed innovative visual tools and processes that support collaboration, business planning and organization transformation.

We have used visual facilitation with a broad range of organization-change clients all over the world. Our services and tools have helped the California Academy of Sciences, HP, Nike, Visa, the U.S. Department of Education and many other organizations achieve measurable results.

The Grove has been recognized for our work in this field by the Organizational Development Network, an international association of organization-development practitioners. In 2013 David Sibbet received ODN's Lifetime Achievement Award.
