Are you suffering from running between crisis and emergency mode? Do you have chronically overworked staff? Are you unsure about the risks of your organisation and how to mitigate them? Are you dependent on only a handful of donors? Do you have an unclear or unrealistic strategy? Are the roles and responsibilities between your senior leadership and board blurry? Do you lack funds to deliver on your mission?
Or are you just conscious of a fast-changing environment and want to benefit from an experienced external view to identify key factors that will ensure your continued success?
We help you
develop strategic, holistic and practical solutions that make your organisation well governed, managed and financed. This will help to establish a healthy workplace for your most important organisational treasure: your staff, carriers of knowledge, experience and commitment necessary to fulfil your mission and reach your organisational goals.
Are your grants recipients too dependent on your funds? Do you want to ensure responsible phasing out of your funding, enabling your grantee to continue the work that has been built up with your support? Is your grantee unique content-wise, but unsustainable, not managed efficiently, with weak governance or undiversified funding? Are you considering supporting a new grantee and need a good understanding and external view of their organisational strengths and weaknesses?
We help you to:
Assess the organisational potential of your grantees or potential grantees and identify key points for organisational development to leverage impact
Support your grantees in organisational development and management capacity building
