Our Story

From the cognitive science of group productivity and organizational behavior - to automating the selection, deployment and management of enterprise software and business transformation.

GroupSystems began as one of the world's leading research projects into the cognitive behavioral science behind group productivity and the collective intelligence of distributed people working together to achieve successful outcomes.


From this groundbreaking research, our original experts, Jay Nunamaker and Dr. Robert Briggs developed the framework for successful stakeholder management that forms the basis of how our automation platform, ThinkTank, works today.

Jay Nunamaker

Jay Nunamaker featured in Forbes magazine as one of eight key innovators in information technology. Nunamaker's research has led to major breakthroughs in collaboration, decision support systems, and automated systems analysis and design.  Known for testing theories and systems in the “real world.”

Dr. Robert Briggs

Dr. Robert Briggs studies the cognitive foundations of collaboration.  Co-founder of the field of Collaboration Engineering and co-inventor of the ‘Thinklets’ design pattern language for collaborative work practices. Made scientific contributions on group productivity, ideation, creativity, consensus, change, technology transition, and satisfaction.

ThinkTank was originally used as Workshop & Consensus Automation system that employs behavioral science and collaboration methods to guide teams to successful outcomes, where group alignment and buy-in is critical.


Since then, our platform has extended into an intelligent process automation system that is relied on by the world's leading services firms and their clients, to revolutionize the selection, deployment and adoption of enterprise software.
