What challenges are your NFP facing?
You know that running a NFP has all the challenges of running an ordinary business, such as strategic planning, attracting participants or clients, managing cashflows, etc.
PLUS, you also have issues with
– finding and keeping good staff (particularly volunteers)
– applying for and attracting grants
– benefactors and patrons
– dealing with governments and other regulatory bodies
– changing rules and regulations
– etc. etc. etc.
If it wasn’t for the benevolent purpose behind the organisation, you would probably give up in frustration.
It doesn’t have to be that way. The solution is to build a resilient and agile organisation able to adapt to the ever-changing landscape and embrace new and better ways of doing things constantly.
By overcoming your challenges, your organisation will free up time and resources for achieving your actual purpose. Which is the whole point, isn’t it?
How we help
Every NFP has a unique set of challenges. That’s why the first thing we do is listen and delve deep into your story, asking sometimes difficult questions until we understand the depth and complexity of your issues.
Only after we fully understand what you are trying to achieve, do we then work with you to build and prioritise an action plan. This may be at the strategic or tactical level depending on your needs.
One of the first things we will discuss and agree on, are factors such as the scale of your challenges, the level of help you require, and your level of urgency. We then tailor our level of engagement to your requirements.
Don’t worry though. You remain the driver of your bus. Although we make a lot of suggestions, the action plan is yours and contains only those activities which you agree to undertake.
Together, we then execute the action plan, delivering on the specific elements. I can assist directly with areas such as strategy; business mentoring, uplifting your staff capability through various types of training; change management, and helping to review your technology requirements, selecting and implementing and adopt new technologies.
In addition, there is a broad and deep range of expertise within the MAP Consulting Group, and regardless of your particular challenges, there are experts within MAP that can be brought in to help you.
When you are paying for assistance, you want to ensure that you are getting value for money. Everything we help you with will be measured so that you know we are making a positive difference.
