"DiaCom (Boulton) is working with project teams from a large aerospace firm - as well as for quality improvement systems, management information reporting, and employee communication. -- The importance of Boulton's approach is that it is responsive; it does not assume "this is what you need at this time," an assumption implicit in educational systems, corporate training programs and most learning technology." - Working Wisdom
Today people on the cutting edge of organizational design, management theory, general systems thinking, representational democracy, whole person health care, psychological and somatic therapies (and a whole lot more) are converging on one another. Today, the common and central dynamic that underlies performance and wellness in all individuals and organizations, is learning. - David Boulton in Management & Conjoncture Sociale (France)



However, performance solutions are not the final goal conceived by leading learning scientists such as David Boulton... A key ingredient that has been missing in market research is the ability to gather real-time feedback from customers... The information gathered and processed by DiaCom's Distributed Dialogue Processing system can be used by corporations (and educational systems) to improve the effectiveness of their systems...The payback occurs in the form of organizational learning... - The Interactive Corporation
