Greenpeace is the world’s leading organisation campaigning on environmental and sustainability issues. Established for over 40 years it still faces some uncomfortable realities in terms of the impact its campaigning has had – with global warming continuing to be a major crisis.
Greenpeace has a reputation for being innovative in its approach to campaigning and engagement. And =mc consulting has a history of working alongside Greenpeace including helping them develop their first innovation strategy with a specialist team led by Marcelo Iniarra in Argentina through to developing an engagement framework work with the fundraising team more recently.
This success story explores a project we undertook with Greenpeace in Asia helping them develop scenario planning as a way of developments in India, Indonesia and China.
Sightsavers International needed a clearer strategic direction, but any successful strategy would have to truly engage staff across the organisation.
In this case study we reveal how =mc worked with Sightsavers over two years to develop a new global strategic direction that achieved record levels of understanding and engagement across the whole organisation and its partners.
The resulting strategy, based around a strategy map has underpinned a range of transformational changes in approach to service delivery and underpinned significant financial growth.
Smile Train is the global INGO providing free cleft palate surgery and associated care throughout the world. Established for over 20 years, it had never had a formal strategy but decided to embark on a strategic engagement and development process in 2019.
The =mc team worked initially onsite, and then as the Covid pandemic took hold we worked remotely to deliver two linked strategies on organisational issues and one focused on fundraising.
The programme led to a range of strategic and operational changes which have allowed the organisation to become more focused and significantly expand its operations in terms of a total care approach for beneficiaries.
The International Step by Step Association (ISSA) is the world’s leading education development network for those working with early years children. Its network is throughout Europe, but it has links with sister agencies in South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
ISSA has an impressive track record in the development of better services for children and those who care for them globally. But with key funders withdrawing they needed to change their business model to become more sustainable. This case study describes how they made that pivot and how =mc consulting worked with them across a number of issues to deliver a sustainable future.
