We design and conduct customized studies, which combine quantitative and qualitative data collection methods, and provide credible statistical analyses to answer questions or validate hunches.
We design and conduct custom evaluation studies to determine how effective a program is, and whether or not it is having an impact on its intended audience. We translate research findings into plain English, so they can be shared by diverse stakeholder groups, and facilitate the development of action plans based on study findings. Communication planning and support are included to facilitate information dissemination.
We design, develop, and deliver training for mid- to senior-level leaders. Our customized interventions use a variety of learning approaches to meet unique audience needs.
Concept Model Development
We listen carefully to our clients’ ideas and vision, and in conjunction with data gathered through assessments and evaluation, develop visual models to convey that message. A picture really can be worth a thousand words.
Literature Reviews & Concept Papers
We conduct research on a variety of topics to explore current thinking, trends, and data, and summarize findings in customized, client-determined formats.
Meeting Design & Facilitation
We design and facilitate varied types of meetings, including strategic planning and framework development; advisory groups; course design and development strategy sessions; cross-functional team initiatives; and process improvement sessions, to name a few.
We consider high-performing organizations and individuals to be those that embody effective, working relationships and data-driven, thoughtful decision-making. Furthermore, we know accurate, reliable, and valid data—when translated into credible communications and actions by key, respected individuals—lead to far superior results. To achieve the highest level of success, our research and experience confirm the need for organizations and individuals to realize what we call the “must haves:”
Measurement of progress and results
Use of data to inform decision-making
Sharing of information by and with the right people at the right time
Training and coaching for mid- to senior-level leaders
Authenticity and accountability
Verification of data and translation of findings into action
Enabling of exemplary leadership
Securing stakeholder buy-in
