About the Author

Author Info

Walt Brown is not practicing on you or waxing eloquently from an ivory tower.

The work he does impacts the real lives of actual living and breathing human beings with families and bills.

He likes to remind clients: “This is the most serious work we do and we have to get it as right as possible the first time, right off the bat for two reasons: One the health and success of the organization depend on us being able to address 21st century organizational complexity and change, and Two, we are going to impact real lives, some positively and some negatively, so, lets do it right.”

"Uncle Walt" as his close clients call him, has facilitated the reimagining, and restructuring of over 200 organizations since 2007. From 10 to 8,000+ Jobs, from 5 to 2,000+ attached Contractors and Gigsters. 

He has helped these organizations evolve their organizational thinking into one that matches the complex world of the 21st century. The process is not a one-meeting-and-done deal, it typically spans 18 to 24 months iterating every 90 days until the individual contributors in the company see the patterns, learn the facilitation methods, can do this work themselves, have learned how and can teach others. In other words they have mastered the art of wrestling with a 21st Century structure.

Walt's core belief is that an organization, your company, is a fiction; a fiction that is only given meaning and power by those who buy in. In order to get buy in, you must focus on 4 things, Cultural clarity and consistency (The Patient Organization) Organizational clarity and consistency (The Patient Organization)  Structural clarity and consistency (Death of the Org Chart) and finally we must make sure our people see this work as being done For them not To them. (The Patient Organization)

In Death, Walt shares the teachings, the model and the simple facilitations he uses; along with an introduction to the software tool his clients use to capture, visualize and interact with their new organization.  

Walt Brown was an E&Y CPA before starting and growing his first company Layline that he sold in 2006 before becoming a full time Implementer of the Entrepreneurial Operating System, EOS, Traction in 2008.

Brown lives in the Chapel Hill area of NC, travels extensively for client work. Outside of work, he enjoys walking on and packing down beaver dams, skiing blacks at Alta during his annual Walta skiing event, mountain biking with standard poodle Buddy Holly, Azalea gardening, and honoring his faith and family.
