Helping organisations meet their strategic goals through cooperation
We believe it’s critical for the people who will be implementing the plans to be involved in co-creating them. This improves buy-in and understanding of the solutions, leading to better outcomes. It enables us to help you both solve your current challenges, and also build your capability as an organisation to manage and solve future challenges.
Our “cooperative consulting” approach therefore draws on consulting approaches such as whole system discovery1, distributed change leadership, coalition building, and the values of the cooperative movement. We work directly with you, your managers, staff, and other stakeholders to define problems, articulate your desired future, outline the alternatives, and collectively agree a course of action. This approach creates the capacity for your organisation to make better strategic decisions and conduct your own analyses in the future.
