Organisational Development

Have you looked a the key factors that determine how well organisations learn, adapt, implement strategies or respond to evaluation findings? We focus on the relationships between managers and employees, internal and intra-team dynamics and the norms and patterns for corporate ‘punishment and reward’.

StrategyHouse.dk works with organisations to improve their leadership skills and capabilities for proper resource management. We do that through organisational capacity assessments, coaching, direct support and training processes that are tailored to the needs of each individual organisation.

Governance & Civil Society

Cooperation between governance structures and civil society representatives is essential to service delivery during emergencies and in post-crisis situations as well as to the promotion of gender rights, democracy and human rights in general.

StrategyHouse is specialised in applying tools and approaches that promote cooperation and coordination between governance structures at all levels and civil society. Cooperation between national and local governance structures and civil society representatives contributes to

  • Strengthening the relevance of investments to beneficiaries
  • Widening the out-reach to isolated and marginalised areas and groups
  • Improving sustainability as local structures assume responsibilities and strengthens the efficiency of interventions.

Theory of Change for Strategic Planning and Evaluation

StrategyHouse.dk is specialised in applying a Theory of Change  (ToC) approach to strategic planning and evaluations. For ten years, we haved trained NGOs, ministries, and institutions in participatory strategic planning processes and evaluations. We have experienced how the approach:

  • Strengthens clients’ understanding not just of what they want to do by how and why their interventions are likely to lead to desired changes
  • Improves the ability of clients to detect flawed strategies and to revise them well in advance so they do not miss their desired goals
  • Strengthens team building and motivation among multiple stakeholders as they come to understand how and why their own interventions and the interventions of others contribute towards shared objectives
  • Improves the opportunities for joint learning

When applied systematically throughout the programme cycle, the theory of change approach is a strong tool for programme management, monitoring, learning and collaboration.
