Having an interim COO can eliminate the urgency of filling a position right away to create time to identify what type of leader your organization needs, while stabilizing what might be a changing situation. Interim leaders can also provide a set of experienced eyes to take a a fresh look at what is really going on and provide solutions and options for the current situation. A great interim executive enables hiring a new leader in a measured, more productive way.
Data and Technology
There can be fear in a nonprofit that moving forward with data and technology is taking the humanness out of your organization. But by growing a strong data culture, nonprofits can gain real insights about the realities, scale, and impact of their work, and have the information to adapt when necessary. Technology products and services available to nonprofits are now plentiful, and many are low cost. We can help develop strategic approaches for your specific data priorities while remembering the humanization factor. Ultimately, it’s not about the data. It’s about people.
Multiple stakeholders and pressures to undertake new projects can result in scarce resources that are not deployed effectively in serving your most important priority- your mission. Re-evaluating those people and process alignments, can guide the important decisions that a nonprofit organization must make— about which new programs and projects to undertake, which to avoid, and which to exit.
