How did we begin?

Connections Online was created in 1996 by Cardwell Group, a leadership development and strategy execution consulting firm. Connections Online was created in response to strong customer demand—clients wanted a dynamic way to measure progress towards goals, track achievement of targets, and motivate individuals and teams to reach strategic objectives. Cardwell Group transferred its extensive knowledge of leadership development and strategy execution into a standalone software product designed to address executives’ challenges in leading companies towards their strategic goals.

Twenty years later, Connections Online has continued to evolve and expand to support business leaders looking to ignite productivity and achieve goals. As an award-winning, cloud-based software application, Connections Online is suited for businesses in all industries.
