Inventor of world-renowned enterprise content strategy methodology shifts focus, entrusts proven methodology to partner

Toronto, ON, Canada – The Rockley Group Inc. announced today the transfer of full licensing of The Rockley Strategic Method™ to Content Rules Inc., the global content strategy and development experts. Content Rules now has the exclusive worldwide rights to practice The Rockley Strategic Method™.

“Their work is outstanding, and we are very confident that they will provide the quality of service that our customers have come to expect from The Rockley Group,” says Ann Rockley, Founder and CEO of The Rockley Group and the designer of The Rockley Strategic Method™.

Why the change? “I felt the time was right for us to focus on the human side,” says Rockley, so The Rockley Group is shifting its focus to the design, creation, and support of strong adaptive teams and individuals through The Resilient Team Advantage™.

“For 31 years, we’ve been known for our expertise in the design and development of intelligent structured content strategies. But time and again we’ve seen that the success of the strategy depends on the strengths and knowledge of the team members; technology and methodology are not always enough,” says Rockley, “particularly as we wrestle with years like 2020.”

“We’ve always worked behind the scenes helping to build teams, grow and mentor existing staff, and hire new people to fill the gaps. We know what it takes to create and sustain successful teams and individuals. And we realize no matter how brilliant your product or services, without the team and corporate infrastructure to sustain it, it will fail.”
