Design Group International is a group of consultants who have chosen to be part of a community that is committed to the craft of Process Consulting. Process Consulting is our shared foundation, approach, and framework.
Being part of a community means we learn and grow together. Consultants in our community of practice hold content expertise in a wide variety of fields. Each is an expert in their own right with a unique set of skills and experiences. We support and challenge one another, share best practices, and collaborate to advance the goals of our clients. Our community of practice provides our consultants with the flexibility to do their very best work.
Design Group International was founded in 2000 by Dr. Mark L. Vincent & Lorie Vincent. Today, the organization includes a growing and dynamic community of consultants across the country. Our consultants serve a variety of businesses, nonprofits, educational institutions, and faith communities throughout North America and beyond.
In 2019, Dr. Vincent transitioned from CEO to Founder of Design Group International. In this new role, he aims to further grow and elevate the field of process consulting. He plans to share this knowledge and experience to help prepare other consultants for the field through the Society of Process Consulting. The Society offers education, credentialing and a framework of professional ethics for process consultants.
With Dr. Vincent’s transition to the role of Founder, Lon L. Swartzentruber was selected to serve as CEO of Design Group International. Design Group International's growth has flourished adding additional key consultants with intentional areas of specialty to support our clients.
Our resource library has increased with each knowledgeable consultant who has come alongside us allowing for cohorts, blogs, podcasts, and events to support our clients in unique ways.
We are continuously looking for new consultants to join the community and expand internationally.
Design Group International consultants are guides along your path to transformation. You are the expert of your organization and we value your experience. We walk alongside you—never out in front of you or from behind you. We are in this together. We’re companions on your journey and we’re committed to seeing you achieve results and find resolve.
