Management Consultancy

If you’re an ethical organisation keen to improve your business processes to make them more efficient, explore new sources of earned income, or develop a new Blue Ocean approach to strategy, then =mc would love to help.

Projects can be as simple as a one-day facilitation, as complex as an online analysis consulting 6,000 volunteers in 20 countries, or as challenging as a global strategy for a development INGO.

We’ve worked extensively with national and local government departments, UN agencies, UK charities, and arts and cultural organisations to deliver transformation primarily in three key areas: strategy, change and innovation.

Creating strategy

‘Business as usual’ almost certainly leads to disaster in today’s fast-changing and fast-moving environment. Instead strategy needs to be flexible and adaptable to meet emerging situations. To do that you need a clearly bounded theory of change – ideally through the strategy map and BSC methodology.

=mc Is now the leading global expert on helping senior teams to develop strategy using the Strategy Map/BSC approach. Among the organisations we’ve worked with nationally are Macmillan Cancer Support, UNICEF UK, The Children’s Society and Arthritis UK. And internationally – ActionAid, Amnesty, UNICEF International and IFRC.

Over a series of workshop-based sessions =mc consultants will help you develop a robust situational analysis, a set of key drivers to focus attention, a flexible and adaptable strategy map, and a scorecard + action plan to check that action is taken and impact measured.

Commercial awareness and generating earned income

With increasing pressure on institutional subsidy, and private giving not growing as fast as we had hoped, earned income looks increasingly attractive. With this income any surpluses are your own and unrestricted. And of course it provides you with sustainable funds to plan for the future.

=mc’s team has unique experience in the UK helping organisations develop an income driven approach to commercial awareness for staff and managers. Over the last five years we’ve worked with organisations as diverse as RSPCA, Age Exchange, BFI, Plymouth City Council and the National Trust, exploring projects from selling animal protection to the film industry to arts-based dementia services to care homes.

In a rigorous, systematic process we can help: identify any potential intellectual property or assets; clarify key market opportunities and audiences; build a business model and business case; seek social investment; and engage staff and managers in an entrepreneurial way of thinking.
