Our Services

Strategic PlanningAssessment and Research

In order to make good decisions, you need solid information. You need to know what your real strengths and challenges are, what your stakeholders want, and what’s happening in the world around you that could impact the future of your organization.

We work with our clients to develop a process for information gathering that fits the needs and style of the organization. We’ll design tools and conduct interviews, on-line surveys, focus groups or literature reviews, or we’ll train your team to do the legwork. We’ll write up the results of the study, with an initial analysis of results. Then we’ll assist you or your stakeholders in finishing the analysis.

 

Strategic Planning

In order to have real impact, you need to work smart. You need to keep an eye to the future and strategize on how best to use your resources to make the difference you want to make.

We will work with you to lay out a planning process, from simple to very thorough, that engages the right people in answering the right questions. We’ll facilitate the process, and provide technical assistance in developing mission, vision and values statements; framing core customers and services; and developing goals & strategies.

Board Development

In order to soar, you need good leadership. A good board knows its job and acts in a way that matches the resources, style and culture of the organization. A good board leads the organization to be its best.

We’ll walk you through a process that helps you get clear about the culture of your organization and what that means for the way your board should approach its work. We’ll provide training on board basics and help your board strategize on how and where it wants to get stronger.

Student Transportation Analysis

In order to thrive, you need to focus your resources where they are most needed. Each dollar spent on transportation is one not spent in the classroom.

We help your school district analyze and develop transportation policies, school alignment and routing to make sure it is as efficient and focused as possible. We can help you get the right contractor at the right price to transport your students safely by assisting with the complex process of transportation contracting, from specifications for bid/quoting to negotiations, and finally to the contracting document.  We can also conduct an outside safety analyses and reviews of specific situations to ensure that student safety is maintained in a fair and equitable way.
