Our Services

Strategy Development and Implementation

Your strategy isn’t just a plan on paper. It’s your playbook for implementing change. We take a customized approach to incorporating external trends, organizational assessments, stakeholder perspectives, futures thinking practices, facilitated working sessions, and implementation structures so your strategy can help you meet your needs and achieve your goals.

Organizational Capacity-Building

For change to stick, it must be embedded directly into how your organization works. We go beyond the limitations of traditional consulting models. Instead, we facilitate substantive dialogue, cultivate creativity, and build your internal capacity for acting on ideas. This approach leads to longer-lasting change.

Multi-Stakeholder Collaboration

Strategic change often requires collaboration among stakeholders across multiple sectors. We can help you design and implement multi-stakeholder initiatives and cross-sector partnerships to provide a better experience for people and achieve better outcomes across targeted populations.

Market and Policy Insights

Driving change from inside your organization begins with understanding the nature of change outside your organization. Our robust, multi-method approach to market research, policy analysis, and trends will deliver the practical insights and promising practices you’ll need to make informed decisions and act with confidence.

Collaborative Consulting are wonderful thought partners. I appreciate that they maintain their professional distance, but are willing to engage. They’re an extension of our work while maintaining their professional autonomy.

If you’ve worked with consultants before for strategic planning, process management, or other initiatives and weren’t truly pleased with the outcome, you should strongly consider Collaborative Consulting. I’ve had the opportunity to work with them on more than one occasion, and have been very pleased.

Collaborative Consulting were good at drawing on other experiences they’ve had, and providing expertise we don’t have here. Their impartiality was important to us. They were hearing things in a different way than we’re able to, seeing things from a different perspective, and offering a different view.

Collaborative Consulting is very much aligned with our mission. Everything we do is mission-driven, so that’s very important. It helps a lot in terms of aligning our strategic approach to the work we do together because at the core, quality of care matters to us, and the Collaborative Consulting team are there with us on this.

What impresses me the most is how effective they are at helping me get clearer about what we’re trying to achieve. They’re a very candid partner. This is different from what we see with other consulting firms. It feels very unique.
