Considerations for a Successful Project Outcome

The strategic issue you choose is:

  • Critical to your mission
  • Related to your strategic plan and priorities
  • Timely and relevant to your organization throughout the project cycle (January - May 2022)

The project you define:

  • Will benefit greatly from a group of business consultants with a broad range of functional skills and industry experience
  • Can allow for much of the work to be conducted off-site by team members  
  • Does not require extensive industry or policy knowledge by the consultants
  • Does not focus on fundraising or board development challenges
  • Is tightly scoped in terms of objectives and measurable outcomes

Please explain:

  • What is unique about your organization?
  • How does the strategic challenge you selected fit within your priorities overall?
  • By addressing this strategic challenge, how will your organization be positioned for success (growth, quality, customer satisfaction, etc.)?
  • What will you gain by using an external business consulting team?
