Having undertaken a wide range of successful assignments for more than 125 nonprofit clients, we believe there are several components of successful consulting engagements:
- Our approach is iterative, fact-based and analytical. We listen carefully. We seek to ensure that the right questions are squarely on the table, analyzed in an appropriately tough-minded way, and discussed collegially and openly.
- We believe that process is as important as the resulting outcomes and deliverables. The work plan for each assignment is tailored to the culture, dynamics and personality of each organization.
- We seek to bring key constituents together to achieve common goals that have been formulated in transparent, engaging ways. We are skilled in working effectively with seasoned and newly appointed Board members and senior staff in ways that are sensitive to individual perspectives and to evolving organizational needs.
- We pride ourselves on assembling the right team of consultants for each assignment, matching the needs and interest of the client with consultants who have the right substantive knowledge and experience, interpersonal skills and professional capabilities.
