Research and Analytics
Changing Our World believes that all strategy must be built on evidence that reflects both the current reality and the directions of future change. The search for evidence must be driven by careful understanding of goals and a clear sense of what success ultimately looks like. Research and analytics are a critical part of every step in an organization’s evolution, from decisions about organizational content and direction to the design of programs or initiatives that implement decisions. Analytics must both inform current decisions and position those decisions to take an organization into a changing future.
We use data to create a value chain of analysis and decision metrics that provide the core and constant evidence upon which strategy and action are built. This includes the full spectrum of philanthropic planning from strategic and business planning through to performance assessment of programs and institutions. We assist our clients with the articulation of objectives, the understanding of the scope of their operating environment (economic, demographic, social), the design of their initiatives, the identification and selection of best-in-class partners that fit their objectives, and the measurement of performance.
