Create Change, Not Waste
Whether maximizing impact for stakeholders or building an economic engine to do good, non-profit and social impact organizations must innovate to tackle uncertainty, remain relevant and thrive in a changing world.
Move the Needle’s Social Impact Innovation programs are designed to help organizations learn before executing to optimize their results and sustainability in Government, Nonprofit, Philanthropy, Higher Education, and Social Enterprise.
How It Works
We help organizations learn a new way to approach uncertainty that allows them to:
Develop a deep understanding of those they serve and their expectations, needs and desires.
Be able to develop and quickly test new bold ideas and validate what will work before committing resources.
Make decisions of where to invest based on evidence of what will create the deepest value and impact for those they serve.
Overcome internal organizational process bottlenecks and unlock new growth, revenue and impact.
Develop greater employee engagement and functional support for a new way of working.
Our services, keynotes, accelerators, workshops, and training are all customized to fit an organization’s unique situation, needs and culture.
