Organizational Effectiveness

Becoming a highly effective organization requires more than the right structure. High-performing nonprofits exhibit strengths across five areas—leadership, decision making and structure, people, work processes and systems, and culture. We help our clients identify their organizational strengths and weaknesses, and develop action plans to increase the ability of their organizations to maximize impact.
