It’s time to dig in! The journey begins with detailed, informed analysis. Before we do anything, we need to hear from you. It’s about knowing what to look for and asking the right questions. When you dig in, you may get a little dirty, but you’ll also invariably uncover key nuggets of wisdom your organization can use to improve and thrive. At Pivot, we don’t see negatives. We see opportunities. We know what it’s like to stand in your shoes, and can help you blaze a trail to a brighter, more impactful future.

The Action:

Review of pertinent documents, data and reports. Interview staff, board members and community stakeholders to comprehensively assess your organization’s strengths and opportunities in areas such as: learning and accountability, internal communication strategies, and talent pool.

The Deliverable:

A comprehensive assessment that highlights organizational trends, and identifies strategic opportunities to improve alignment, enhance performance management, optimize talent, and create more efficient impact.

The Timeframe:

Engagements vary. Typically 4-6 weeks.

Based on the comprehensive assessment, we’ll craft a customized, carefully calibrated plan that will transform challenges into solutions, channel observations into action steps, shore up all facets of accountability, and set your organization on the pathway to being the best.

Pivot remains engaged as you look to make your vision a reality. We’ll stand with you during implementation to ensure your organization meets its goals. Tangible, sustainable results – that’s what we’ll achieve.
