Who We Are

The thing that makes us stand out from the crowd is our ability to bring order out of chaos and get people to agree. Then, once they agree show them how to work together for a common purpose.

Everything we do is based on our belief that people really want to do the best work they can, and our job is to give them the tools that need to succeed. Whether it is our management system, the TriplePoint Advantage, or our work in facilitation and consulting, the goal is to work with you to create solutions that fit your needs and then put them into action.

Executive Staff ...

Jesse Hulse founded Giffordson Solutions in 2003 out of a passion to see people working together to solve problems they thought were unsolvable. He developed our Beyond Tools™ methodology based on 20 years experience in manufacturing, quality assurance and project management, and on the experience of planning and facilitating nearly 100 individual corporate workshops. Then, he saw the need for a powerful and flexible business management system and created the TriplePoint Advantage™.
