Changing donor behaviour, competitiveness and heightened scrutiny of the charitable sector means boards and senior leaders are under pressure to deliver results on a sustainable basis.

Combined with developing new sources of revenue, finding the right people and meeting the opportunities of ambitious organizations, many leaders are looking for a better way. Through the alignment of governance, planning and performance organizations can meet these challenges and become more effective and more focused on their mission.

Alignment is the essential strategic element for successful mission-driven organizations

WORKING WITH US

At the Discovery Group we believe that just like every organization is unique, every engagement is unique. We provide a program specifically tailored to match the needs, opportunities and aspirations of each client. Typical engagements include first helping senior management, the board, or both; assess the opportunities, challenges, and urgency the organizations is facing. This opening work is usually followed by time spent with the organization to determine alignment, develop a plan of action and ongoing support for implementation.
