Strategy Consulting

The Bridgespan Group’s strategy engagements focus on results. Our clients have big ideas for making the world a better place. We help them create ambitious and practical plans to accomplish their goals. We measure success by the results our clients achieve.

What We Do

We collaborate with leaders and their organizations to develop strategies that deliver results. We help organizations clarify their mission and align resources to fund, measure, and achieve their desired outcomes. Organizations benefit from improved decision making and stronger leadership and management.

How We Help

We start by understanding your most critical decisions and defining what success would look like. Recognizing that the definition of success varies tremendously by client, we find that the right questions and approaches vary too. For any given client, we seek to identify the most vital questions and structure the work to answer them. These questions may include:

  • What are the most powerful strategies your organization/network can pursue to dramatically increase social impact?
  • What structure, process, talent, and culture are necessary to achieve your goals?
  • What sources of sustainable revenue exist to support your organization?
  • How will you know if you are making a difference?
  • How will you learn and improve over time?
  • Who must you engage to make change successful, and how can you ensure they are part of the change process?

How We Work

Rigorous approach, practical solutions

  • We collaborate with clients to develop practical solutions to their complex problems. We use data-driven approaches to help our clients solve their important challenges. Success is measured by the results our clients achieve.
