Partnering with missions to re-orient and amplify their impact at scale

Strategy

We focus on amplifying the impact of social entrepreneurs and development agencies that are committed to resolving complex societal challenges at scale.

The missions we partner with, come with a vision, a theory of change, technical expertise, experience in enabling development across communities, strong networks, and most importantly a deep desire to outpace the problem at scale. We partner with them to re-visit their mission and develop a strategic plan of action to realize their scale aspirations.

Design

We work with missions to paint a picture of success and co-create or assemble a set of capabilities that can collectively enable non-linear approaches to catalyze impact at scale.

When missions decide to pivot and elevate their trajectory to resolve societal challenges at scale, they often need to re-visit the premise of their approach and reimagine how they intend to catalyze and activate partners across the ecosystem to amplify collective impact. We work with Missions to paint a Picture-of-success as seen through a first-mile lens, and re-orient their methods, solution approach, and operating model to enable that picture of success.

Platforms

We partner with missions to build and operationalize digital infrastructure and platforms that can be extended by partners across the ecosystem to unlock new possibilities that amplify collective impact.

Large, complex societal challenges cannot be resolved by building a solution for every problem we encounter, or by building one solution to solve all problems. We leverage Societal Platform thinking and combine it with our own design methodology to systematically design digitally reimagined platforms that not only enable mission-specific strategies, but also strengthen the underlying infrastructure in ways that promotes convergence across missions.

Transformation

Many leaders underestimate what it takes to re-orient an organization, its people, and partnerships to pivot and enable a (new) scale strategy.

We believe that preparing and supporting missions for the transformation journey is crucial for success, and we take a hands-on approach to partnering with our clients to help them make that transition. We believe that our work is not complete unless we strengthen the ability of these Mission’s and their leadership team, to own, lead, evolve, nurture, navigate and realize their mission.
