Helping Your Nonprofit and NGO Become More Effective

As your organization grows or you shift strategy, your organizational structure and processes need to adapt. It is important to reassess and revise how your organization operates to maintain strong and inclusive teams, leaders, and processes.

How We Help You Achieve Greater Organizational Effectiveness

We work with your executive team to clarify strategy, set priorities, structure effective meetings, and resolve roadblocks to effective decision making. More broadly, we help you determine whether your organizational structure, processes, capabilities—your operating model—need updating to more effectively implement your strategy. Our approach involves:

  • Talent Development: We guide you to develop an action plan to develop talent across the organization. The plan includes building future leaders and aligns with your equity and inclusion goals.
  • Executive Team Performance: We help you define effective CEO leadership, clarify the executive team’s role, and establish processes for productive and inclusive group interactions.
  • Aligning Strategy and implementation: We help you evaluate and revise, as needed, your operating model—the blueprint for how you organize and deploy people and resources to translate strategy into results.
