We worked with this Presbyterian seminary over two years, first to implement an inclusive strategy formation process that engaged all members of the SFTS community, and then to assist the School’s management team in implementation. We also designed a dashboard to help the President and Dean track progress against strategic goals and targets.
CNPS evaluated the first phase of the ONE campaign and recommended an appropriate organizational structure and phase 2 goals to move the campaign forward.
In 2005, the Aspen Institute hired us to analyze five successful advocacy campaigns in the area of global development to identify factors that contributed to their success. The resultant report led to the development of an advocacy evaluation framework, which is the basis for the work of the Aspen Planning and Evaluation Program.
Our first project with SFFI was to design and implement a “Call before you Cut” campaign to persuade private forest owners in six midwestern states to seek professional advice before harvesting trees. Next, we developed a website (www.engaginglandowners.org) and training program to help natural resource professionals engage with woodland owners. We continue to assist SFFI with program delivery and evaluation.
Over the years, CNPS has executed several projects for Bread, including a dashboard to help the Board and management team track progress, a graphic to “map” Bread’s influence over time, and a long-term vision for what Bread will accomplish and become over the next twenty years.
