Why “Fourth Quadrant”?

In an Emergent Learning Table, the fourth quadrant is “Opportunities.” That’s where a group pulls out their calendars and looks for opportunities to test out their best current thinking in practice -- to deliberately link theory and action. The Fourth Quadrant is where learning turns into results.


About Fourth Quadrant Partners, LLC


Fourth Quadrant Partners, LLC helps mission-critical organizations and social innovators use the principles and tools of Emergent Learning to accelerate, deepen and institutionalize their ability to think about and learn from their work in order to consistently achieve or exceed desired outcomes even in the midst of unpredictable challenges.


We formed 4QP in 2011 because we believe in the power of the human mind and spirit to create a better world and our shared desire to help groups bring all of their collective resourcefulness and intelligence to the task of creating the results to which they aspire.


We built our unique approach on years of research and practice. We have seen that, unfettered, a community can learn and accomplish far more together than any member could learn and accomplish on their own.
