We care deeply about supporting your impact efforts. And are so grateful for all the work we’ve been able to support you in. Unfortunately, there are many efforts that we have not been able to support due to resource limitations.
Saying “no” to great partners has always been difficult to do, so we had to ask ourselves, “Is there a way we can support efforts that don’t have a budget to support traditional consulting and evaluation engagements?”
Combining Spark’s expertise, technology, and proven frameworks for five strategic organizational needs, we are excited to offer the Action Builder Series.
A highly effective and efficient approach, the Action Builder Series is a unique way to get access to the heads, hands, and even hearts you want, to create five key solutions for your organization.
Craft a series of statements with words that matter. An effective vision and mission statement should be compelling enough to inspire and specific enough to direct. The Vision and Mission Package in the Action Builder Series will help you do exactly that with hands on partnership with the Spark Team.
Clearly map how change will happen, starting with your desired result. Effective logic model and theories of change map a sequence of events that will and/or need to happen to create a desired result. This product from the Action Builder Series is highly useful for decision-making, implementation, and evaluation purposes.
Create a guide for prioritization and decision-making. An effective strategic or adaptive plan gets everyone on the same page with regard to priorities, and gives them permission to say “no” where needed. A strategic or adaptive plan from the Action Builder Series will align your organizational priorities and allocate resources most effectively.
Build the processes and systems to successfully implement your strategies. An effective implementation or work plan outlines the processes and systems needed for individuals and teams to achieve goals. An implementation or work plan from the Action Builder Series will identify, select, and map processes for effectiveness and efficiency, along with the tools for change.
Collect, analyze, learn, adapt, and improve. An effective evaluation or data strategy creates insights for learning and offers answers to problems. An evaluation or data strategy from the Action Builder Series will help you create the structure and tools for learning and improvement in your organization or initiative.
As we set out to create the Action Builder Series, we identified the common components of our most successful engagements with partners. We then designed the most efficient model we could to ensure each of these crucial touchpoints are met.
Our clients tell us they hire consultants for their heads, their hands, or their hearts. We have specifically designed the Action Builder Series to deliver one or more of the strategic products in the series and partner with you in the following ways.
