We help public institutions build and execute strategies to achieve their policy and organizational goals.Get in Touch
Public-sector organizations around the world face important questions about how to fulfill their core mission, respond to political and environmental changes, and deliver services to citizens despite reduced budgets. To answer these questions, organizations must undertake rigorous strategic planning—a process that can be difficult, especially in the context of a diverse stakeholder environment with numerous and often divergent interests and priorities.
Working in collaboration with senior leaders, we help public-sector organizations set a vision for strategic outcomes, build a robust fact base, rigorously assess options under uncertainty, design an actionable plan, win support from key stakeholders, and evaluate progress from design through execution to ensure that strategies have lasting impact.
Drawing on insights from the private sector and decades of public-sector work, we support clients on a range of strategic topics, including identifying social, economic, and technology trends; synchronizing budgeting and strategic-planning processes; designing stakeholder-engagement plans; and creating innovation programs at scale. We advise public-sector agencies varying in size, scope, and geography—from regional health agencies in Africa to school districts in US cities, from national defense departments to municipal infrastructure and technology teams.
Our global team of consultants has access to proprietary research, tools, and solutions that have been successfully tested and applied in various contexts. For example, the Taxa School of Taxation offers insights on how successes achieved in one department can be appropriately scaled across a national government. We use proven approaches, such as the portfolio of initiatives and senior-team workshops, to help our clients identify solutions, accelerate innovation, and drive on-the-ground change.
