We bring deep curiosity, appreciation, and a Swiss-army knife skillset to every project. Whether it's tightly scoped or pull-out-the-stops, we come ready with all the tools in our arsenal.
We specialize in bringing multi-stakeholder groups together to create shared strategies for complex issues. We apply expertise in process design and change management to help groups arrive at strategies that are human-centered, overcome silos, and foster sytems-level change – whether that means working with different stakeholders within an organization or across sectors. Our approach to process design prioritizes meaningful engagement and collaboration to ensure strategies are informed by diverse perspectives and have buy-in from all stakeholders.
MULTI-SECTOR LEARNING & COLLABORATION
PROJECT CREATION & ARCHITECTURE
Effective decisions depend on strategy. We work with clients to bring clarity, direction, and coherence to projects and organizational changes. Meeting clients where they are at, defining and expressing bold direction, and sequencing what matters to get there.
FACILITATION & MEDIATION
We are experienced in facilitation and mediation, from helping individuals or groups negotiate conflict to simply keeping things on track to help your meeting achieve its goals. With training in Harvard Law School's Program on Negotiation, we cultivate authentic conversations – whether this involves two parties in conflict, a group of high-level executives, or engaging staff, the public, or other stakeholders.
We bring educational and field expertise in public and social policy. We undertake and coordinate qualitative policy research with experts and stakeholders, while drawing on a deep knowledge of the public policy process and the sectors involved. Our projects span across sectors, from housing and homelessness to health and education.
SCANS & SYNTHESIS DOCUMENTS
We work with clients and stakeholders to take a project from start to finish, especially when coordination is needed across organizations or sectors. We start by mapping the route to a project's destination, then oversee every step on the way to ensure all milestones and deliverables are met. We find creative solutions within project constraints and make sure high-level strategies are actionable on the ground.
