What is SamePage?
A collaborative initiative delivering unique thought leadership around SharePoint
Perth, Australia, SEVEN SIGMA BUSINESS SOLUTIONS and 21APPS, Shropshire, United Kingdom, today have announced the formulation of the SAMEPAGE ALLIANCE - A strategic partnership and collaboration initiative that will provide customers around the world with the combined benefits of two uniquely skilled organisation.
Both SEVEN SIGMA and 21APPS are thought leaders in their respective competencies and contribute to the broader community knowledge through their consulting, writing, speaking and product offerings. Both organisations have recognised SharePoint experts and deep thinking approaches which they share through SharePoint conferences worldwide.
“We are very excited to work with 21apps,” said Paul Culmsee, Director, Seven Sigma Business Solutions. “Teaming up with 21apps is an exciting development for our company. This will enable us to tap into each other’s resources thereby enabling our companies to better service our clients.”
“We have been considering this Alliance for a while now. This alliance exemplifies our dedication to providing clients with the best of what both our companies can offer globally,” states Andrew Woodward, Founder and CEO, 21apps.
SEVEN SIGMA is a strategic advisory and sensemaking company with a diverse and unique combination of service offerings. Few IT consultancies can lay claim to facilitating the deliberations of boards of directors, developing performance and governance frameworks for large scale, multimillion dollar civil infrastructure projects, facilitating inter-discipline groups on forums as diverse as city planning, sustainability, product envisioning and community based enquiry by design. Equally few facilitation and strategic alignment organisations can lay claim to providing expert IT strategic advice, design, training, enterprise architecture and implementation services either.
21APPS is a relaxed, high quality, deep thinking, strategic consulting company that enjoys what it does, which is provide companies with the leadership, experience, techniques, tools and knowledge to deliver the maximum value from their investments in people, solutions and services.
21apps is world renowned for its passion and pursuit of true quality development around the SharePoint platform. Working closely with Microsoft Patterns and Practices and Microsoft Research, 21apps has helped to promote improvements to the quality of solutions developed whilst promoting the use of agile and lean techniques to ensure those solutions deliver true business value.
The benefits to you?
By capitalizing on our compatible differences the alliance will continue to benefit from the transformation of new ideas into products, services and solutions.
Our combined skillset and broad, multidisciplinary experience provides customers with many benefits:
- World-class SharePoint competencies across training, governance, infrastructure, development and delivery
- Global software development and round the clock SharePoint managed services and support
- World-unique strategic advisory services and collaborative facilitation services, incorporating; goal alignment, shared visioning and performance framework development, large group facilitation, user and community engagement, enquiry by design, risk analysis, critical thinking and decision methodologies, process improvement

Seven Sigma provides the “holding environment” needed for diverse groups, with often highly conflicting viewpoints, to be able to work through their problem in a radically inclusive manner. Often called in to assist with very complex and difficult problems that have reached stalemate, the techniques and sensemaking approach result very quickly in the “aha” moments and breakthroughs required to forge a lasting solution.
