HOW WE WORK

High impact organisations are committed, focused, possess the right solutions, and are able to collaborate effectively with others. These groups excel in the field, yet often struggle to build effective organizations that can grow and sustain their work. That’s where we come in.

We work alongside our partners to design, train, and troubleshoot until they no longer need our support.

Our formula for what makes an effective organization is fairly simple:

Strategy + People + Action  = Impact

 

Strategy

Strategy is about understanding what needs to get done and designing the right path to do it. It involves big thinking yet practical solutions. We ask tough questions and help our partners find the right answers so they can gain focus and clarity on what they need to do to achieve their goals and create lasting change. 

Action

Action is how a team brings a strategy to life. It’s how it raises money to make things happen, plans its activities to stay focused, measures its progress, or lets others know what its doing and why it matters. We help organizations design their systems and strategies so they can get things done.

People

An organization’s most important resource is its people. They bring the ideas, skills, and human-power to drive change. Whether visionaries, technicians, or work-horses, we help organizations get the most out of their teams, relationships, and networks to achieve optimal performance

Funding

Money enables an organization to do its work, execute its strategy, and recruit the team it needs to deliver. Good funding is secure, flexible, and supports an organization do what it wants to get done to achieve its goals.
