Transformative Change Consulting

Using a unique combination of experience and expertise, we create collaborative environments considering the diverse viewpoints and capabilities of stakeholders to develop strategic solutions that create long-term, sustainable transformative change toward compliance objectives or other shared aspirational goals.

  • We recognize that each engagement is unique, and each client is unique in the challenges they face and the solutions they need. We begin each engagement focused on learning from our clients, who know their businesses, clients, customers, stakeholders and industry best.
  • Having worked with and for many communities and populations of harmed and under-served persons, we integrate the views and perspectives of the people and organizations at the heart of every matter. We accomplish this through in-person meetings, interviews, focus groups, and surveys of affected populations and involved stakeholders.
  • We work collaboratively to gather internal and external data, research, and information to identify both practical and strategic challenges and opportunities.
  • Based on this constellation of information, we develop unique analyses and visualizations bringing together the quantitative and qualitative elements from all stakeholders to create innovative strategies.

This process creates highly informed, unique opportunities for transformational change. When combined with feedback processes, iterative learning systems, evaluation metrics, and strategic milestones and goal setting, these strategies result in transformative, sustainable change for our clients.
