Our Services:  Helping you define and deliver your social impact

Impact &
Strategic Clarity

These projects follow a structured, proven process, developed by the Bridgespan Group and modified by Innoweave, a program of the J.W.McConnell Family Foundation

Over 6 months, using our process expertise, we coach your senior leadership team to build on your knowledge and experience, to develop practical strategic priorities and focus.

Generally, teams work with us in workshop settings and coaching calls every two weeks.  The result?  Everyone in your organization is aligned to a clear vision of the impact you aim to have on the people and causes you care about, and you’ve developed a firm foundation for strategic planning.

Strategic
Planning

With strategic clarity as a foundation, we help organizations operationalize their key priorities and plan for financial and organizational change. We tailor engagements to fit your needs and budget, and ensure your key stakeholders are engaged and supportive of the final result.

  • Facilitated internal focus groups and working sessions
  • Secondary or primary research
  • High level or detailed content for your strategic plan
  • Publication-ready online and print reports.
