Strategy and Governance
You work to make a difference, but do you know how you’re going to achieve it? A strong board and a clear strategy are essential to delivering on your social purpose.
Whether you are a small not-for-profit, a large corporate or a philanthropic foundation, SVA Consulting can support you to define, refine or clarify your strategy. We work with boards and senior executive staff to set the strategic direction of your organisation or program.
Our team can facilitate the development of your strategy by drawing on an assessment of the market, policy and sector environments, along with a diagnosis of your current operations. We support our clients to establish strong governance principles and effective board performance to underpin and guide their strategy, and ultimately lead to the positive change they are working to make.
