Areas of Expertise
strategic plan stress test
Many organizations operate with weak, outdated, or incomplete "strategic plans" that fail to position them for the future, address strategic threats or inspire leadership and staff. ODCF can "stress test" your plan by conducting an external review which helps leaders see if they are solving the right problems, and have comprehensive solutions in place. We can also help organization "fine tune" their strategic plans, or help build them from scratch as needed.
resource mobilization and diversification
Most organizations struggle to stay competitive and diversify their funding base. ODCF provides a broad range of services starting with the development of over arching resource development and diversification strategies to providing assistance with specific proposals or opportunities. Between these two extremes, we can help you upgrade your competitive business development systems and processes, conduct win rate and competitive analyses and build he capacity of your business development staff anywhere in the world.
