Organizational Development

How is your culture impacting your mission? Too many times we find nonprofit organizations are awash in good intentions but may struggle with their structures and systems that are in place. “We’ve always done it this way,” doesn’t cut it. Changes and transition are rarely easy but often lead to effective results. Our experts work with you to look at everything from how you answer the phone to what you do after a project ends.

You want to change the world, but to do so you need a vehicle to make that happen. The vehicle you need is found in a superior organization design with its attendant systems, structures, and processes. You also need more and better leaders. Our experts work with you to build the right organizational vehicle to help you achieve your vision for mission.


 

Program Evaluation

What guides your decision making? Comprehensive research studies can reveal exactly what makes you effective…or not! We help you use qualitative, quantitative and secondary research methods to get to the heart of the matter. Careful program evaluation includes gap analysis to show what may be missing from your organization while outcome measurements indicate what's working well or needs to be revised.

What’s the shared vision of your organization? Is everyone working toward the same thing? We help you ensure that your leaders are crystal clear in what they’re doing and why they’re doing it. Our experts can help you take a look at what you’re doing. What’s working and what’s not? We'll get to the heart of the matter so your strategic plan brings clarity to your organization.
