Now there are a lot of folks out there who roll their eyes at this goal. But in his book “Good to Great,” Jim Collins suggests that to become great you have to set Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAGs) to stimulate progress. According to Collins, “A BHAG is a huge and daunting goal.” A goal that is clear and compelling, and that is what the CDT Board of Directors has done in establishing a BHAG of becoming the Preferred Method of divorce in Texas.

How is progress toward the BHAG measured? The best measurement CDT has is the growth in web traffic (See graphic). The February name change brought into focus the keywords of Divorce and Collaborative. Since March CollaborativeDivorceTexas.com web traffic has increased 16.6% over 2015 traffic. And since, June web traffic has been growing at an even faster rate of nearly 28.6% compared to 2015.
