We help Nonprofit Organizations to

  • redesign the structure of their organization to support their strategy and promote ongoing performance management
  • clarify whom they serve (target population vs. service poulation)

  • clarify, rethink and/or design measurable program participant outcomes and indicators

  • review and refine the elements of their programs, bringing knowledge of evidence based programs or widely accepted "good practices" to bear

  • improve alignment among and coordination of their programs

  • improve their capacity to deliver their programs reliably, sustainably, and at high levels of quality and effectiveness

  • design, build, implement and use state-of-the-art performance management data systems

  • prepare for external program evaluations

  • NEW FOR 2009:  Evaluation Services
  • What We Offer

    As described in our brochure, our approach to Strategic Performance Management using Theory of Change Workshop is a carefully designed, intensive, multi-day excercize that promotes  organizations' development and builds their capacity for high level strategic performance.  Participants include all levels of an organizaton - board of directors, executive leadership, mid-level managment, and front line staff.  They work together to reexamine fundamental assumptions, articulate tacit thinking, surface and resolve conflicting beliefs, and achieve consensus on the organization's strategic focus, its blueprint for achieving and sustaining measurable success, its performance standards, and  how it will manage performance with accountability.  This results in:
    • a tightly structured, highly aligned organization in which everybody knows how their work contributes to the organization's strategic success
    • high quality, well managed, and effective programs
    • clearly defined outcomes and indicators for  program participants
    • a clear framework for the implementation and use of data gathering and performance management
    • a well designed and implemented performance management system
    • the ability to deliver, monitor, learn from, and evaluate high quality, effective, and efficient human services
