We adopt different approaches and use methods depending on the context, realities and preference of the client and its partners. One approach to organization/institution development involves setting vision, mission, goal and strategy followed by an organization development plan. Another approach involves situation analysis, options identification and analysis, strategy selection and developing change management plan.
We provide professional services at different stages of the project/program cycle. The process involves selection and use of appropriate state-of-the-art methods and tools. The services include:Appraisal and project scoping Mid-term review/evaluation End-of-project/program evaluation Baseline, impact and other study.
Designing a relevant, cost-effective and sustainable project/program is highly challenging. Development practice has moved away from programs/projects planning by "experts" in the headquarters of funding agencies to a participatory process of engaging local stakeholders in the design and implementation of projects/programs. This local involvement implies a significant role for development management consultants. We have assisted a number of development agencies in the design and/or implementation of projects/programs in Nepal. Design of monitoring system and implementation support is part of this. The process involves consultations with the stakeholders, including where relevant women, the poor and people from socially excluded groups, documentation of the proposed action in an appropriate format and development of a monitoring system. Theory of change, logical and results based management frameworks tools are used.
We help organizations in strategic planning. Strategic planning generally involves external and internal situation assessment, identification and analysis of strategic options, preparation of do-able strategic plan. One key event in this process is a workshop where all the stakeholders work for common understanding and future response. For this, we provide services of qualified workshop facilitators/moderators. Highly participatory methods and tools are used in the process.
