Keeping people at the heart whilst accelerating change and efficiency in the Third Sector.

New call-to-action

We work with charities, social enterprises and membership and chartered bodies to design solutions with implementation in mind, so change can be delivered rapidly and successfully. Our focus is on achieving real results for our clients, making them more impactful, agile and competitive.

How we can help:

Embed your strategy – If you know what you want to achieve but don’t know how to get there, we will have your back. We work as your trusted advisor to help shape and make your transformation strategy a reality. 

Create a clear line of sight – Sometimes identifying the quick wins can help get a transformation off the ground. We support you to review and prioritise your change initiatives, aligning to your strategy and ensuring they will deliver clear outcomes and the required behavioural changes. 

Review your organisation design and operating model – Helping you to select the right design and operating model that sets your organisation up for success and makes the best use of your resources. We can also support transition and implementation if required. 

Service Design and Product reviews – Is your product and service mix fit for the future?  Using Design Thinking principles, we can support your teams to undertake a review and ensure you optimise customer experience opportunities. 

Breathe new life into challenging projects – Your strategy may be full of initiatives but lack a project delivery plan. We can help you determine what is needed for your strategy to succeed. We will also rescue tricky, complex, stagnating or failing projects with a cost-efficient and flexible resource model to increase capability when your permanent teams are stretched.  

Embrace technology and digital transformation – You may know that you need digital solutions, but not know which. We can guide you through the selection and implementation of technology so that you become more efficient, more agile and are set up to get better results. We will also make sure your end users adopt the technology to deliver value for your organisation.  

Establish the best ways of working– If you’re experiencing cultural challenges with ways of working​ or a lack of common sense of purpose between front line team & ops team, we can build collaboration and cohesion. We can help with recruitment, retention, training, leadership and strategies to engage your staff and volunteers. 

Our work with Nine Feet Tall is a perfect example of partnership. By bringing experience and drive they helped shape the PMO team to deliver real value and sustainable improvements to our business.
