We work with policymakers, public sector managers, and other organizations looking to drive social impact. Our work takes a citizen-centric approach that achieves results for the overall community.
Our university takes full advantage of its location in one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the world. The Estudiar mission drives our focus on quality education for all and service to our neighbors in need.
Since our founding in 1919, The Estudiar University has redrawn and redefined the boundaries of intellectual and creative thought as a preeminent academic center. Our rigorous, multidimensional approach to education dissolves walls between disciplines and helps nurture progressive minds. At our university, students have the academic freedom to shape their unique, individual paths for a complex and rapidly changing world.
In many cases the issues to be addressed are well understood or obvious. But in an environment with multiple urgent priorities and an ever-shifting social landscape, organizations must be able to bring clarity and purpose. Filtering through the lens of key stakeholders, and with a focus on positive high impact, we can set your organization up to analyze, prioritize, initiate, and communicate with confidence.
All the organizational components can be in place, but it’s about building a culture of delivering results for constituents. Establishing ownership of issues and outcomes requires leadership, a trusting and inspired workplace, and technical competence. Additionally, it’s important to evaluate and leverage potential strategic partners that will bolster your capabilities. Strengthening culture, best practices, and big-picture networking are what we do!
The only way to know we are achieving our impact is through accurate measurement. Determining the correct key performance indicators and creating the appropriate reporting methodology is critical to driving change, establishing credibility, and gaining constituent support.
In a world of legislate and leave, impact organizations must own and operate the issues. Programs may not go as planned, constituents’ needs and expectations change, and, in general, the world is not static. Persistent and consistent follow-up keeps us in contact with the results we want to achieve. Evaluation of actual results coupled with on-going gap analysis, on-going root cause analysis, and detailed evaluation of feedback loops are just some of what is necessary to keep the impact drive on track. Accountability builds public confidence.
