- Theory of Change – Identify your path from resources to impact.

The process is based on logic and organizational experience and takes into account available resources and opportunities for change.
- Organizational Development: Assessment & Design – Is your organization well-designed? Organizational Assessments identify and address the root causes of resistance to organizational change and pinpoint where an organization can improve.
- Strategy: Planning and Management – The ability to achieve consistent impact and results over time is directly related to the strength of an organization’s management strategy and strategic plan. In order to drive an organization to its intended destination, the management must be aligned in their vision and approach and be committed to a three to five year plan detailing how its objectives will be achieved.
- Planning: Business and Operational –An operational plan is a blueprint of how the organization will logistically achieve the strategic plan establishing milestones and benchmarks as indicators of success. A business plan on the other hand is the financial articulation of the strategic plan and ties the plan to a fiscal management strategy.
