Define your objectives, develop effective strategies to pursue them, and manage implementation to achieve results.

Strategy matters

We live in a rapidly changing world with high levels of unmet need, and significant social, economic and environmental problems. We need skilful leadership to navigate ourselves to a better future. Much of this leadership needs to come from government, charities and other social purpose organisations. Robust strategy is a key not only to organisational success, but to positive outcomes for our communities.

Clarify vision, objectives and strategies

We design and facilitate planning processes to clarify your vision, define objectives, and develop effective strategies to meet them. We assist you to analyse your strategic and operational environment to understand the drivers affecting you, and the points of leverage and influence available. We help you to draft and refine your strategic plan to communicate your strategy to your key audiences.


We work with organisations, campaigns, partnerships and sectors to facilitate collaborative planning for collective impact. We engage a range of stakeholders to draw on their thinking, develop alignment and generate a shared agenda for change.


Strategy doesn’t create impact until it’s implemented. We will support you to translate strategic thinking into operational plans, work with teams to clarify priorities, and set up efficient reporting and review cycles to monitor progress.
