We provide long term advisory services to programs, organizations and donors. Typically, this involves regular advice over a number of years on strategy development either at the organizational or program level, as well as advice on implementation issues jointly identified with the client.
We offer tailored courses to donors and programs in our areas of expertise. We also offer a limited number of open subscription courses tackling challenging areas of results measurement. Each course helps participants to improve their conceptual understanding and practical skills in ways that can be immediately applied to improve program effectiveness. For more information, see our training page.
Capacity Building and Mentoring
We offer a variety of capacity building assistance beyond training, including on-the-job guidance and coaching, distance learning, referral to resources and connections to other practitioners and experts working in similar areas. We are innovators in building the capacity of other consultants and consulting firms to enrich and improve the quality and availability of services to donors, programs and organizations. We see our role as working our way out of a job, by ensuring that our clients have the capacity, resources and connections to handle future challenges confidently and effectively.
Knowledge Capture and Management
We provide services in design both to donors and to programs and organizations. We ensure that design is based on a careful and thorough understanding of the context and draws on best practices from around the world. We see design as an interactive and iterative process that uses the knowledge and expertise of different stakeholders to arrive at a practical and workable project with the structure to promote coherence and the flexibility to respond to an evolving context.
