The Steps

Community data

Proven process.

Working with communities across the country, we have developed a process that is robust enough to produce meaningful results while also sufficiently flexible to ensure that the methodology and outcomes are tailored to each community’s unique needs and circumstances.

The core principles are: Discern the insights the data provides, listen intently during community interview and surveys, synthesize the findings into actionable recommendations, and prioritize to create a plan that can be executed and will be catalytic for the community.

Delve into data

We believe in the data. The numbers, charts, graphs and tables give us insight into the bones of a community. Once we understand the data, we can begin to understand the community. That's why we created our own tool to analyze data - to understand your community. 

Community engagement

Surveys: Online and in person surveys to help you gauge the opinions of your community as well as the resources available to them

Focus groups: Groups of business owners, community leaders, workforce employees, students and more

Interviews: Direct feedback and discussion through curated questions, with a focus towards the underrepresented in the community including minorities & youth

Create the plan together and synthesize

An actionable plan. Concrete & well-defined steps with a few prioritized recommendations.

We don't hand you 'our' plan. Your community data with engagement from the people living there are the driving force behind the plan we design together.
