Aligning Strategy and Program Data Systems

“[Sarah] offered her expertise and served as part sounding board, part educator and part questioner. Sarah also demonstrated a consistency with follow through and an attention to detail that was necessary to ensure that the work moved forward. Should the opportunity arise, I would collaborate with her again in a heartbeat.”

-Stephanie Korber, Director of Opportunity, Episcopal Community Services, Philadelphia

I facilitate discussions that support strategic thinking and design. Program data strategy and design should be sustainable and transformational for the long-term, rather than one-off, transactional approaches. Community partnership and user-experience are central to this process.

Gathering accurate and insightful program data is essential to understanding your organizational strategy and impact. This data should be easily understood and related to organizational strategy. For this reason, evaluation and monitoring should not be an afterthought, but incorporated into program design and strategic thinking processes.
