Your organization’s staff, leaders and volunteers are probably very, very good at many things. But managing and implementing multi-stage projects and programs is a specialized art. The Maria Latimore Group has more than 30 years of successful experience in that art.
We will work closely with your staff and leaders to conceive, develop, plan and create an implementation plan for the projects and programs you wish to support. We will set realistic goals, document the tasks, determine the resources required, manage expectations, and report project status. We will create and execute a deadline oriented, step-by-step plan that is easily understood, falls within budgetary restraints, and ensures that the program is ready when required. As project manager, we will keep a close eye on the details while never losing sight of the larger objectives.
An organization is most effective when everyone … from staff, board members and volunteers, understand the vision, the mission and the goals, and how their roles impact them.
Whether your team needs professional development to expand their knowledge base or focused skills-based training, Maria Latimore Group provides just in time training to fully leverage their potential and increase your organizational capacity. We handle it all from start to finish: from developing the curricula and training materials to delivering the training.
Collect data, measure results, test alternatives, question assumptions. Measuring your program outcomes help you, your staff and funders to understand and analyze the effectiveness of your programs. Valuable outcome measurements identify the programs that are performing well and those that should be improved, and are critical on the journey to success. Some key factors for effective outcome measurements are as follows:
- Start early with the program goals
- Begin planning early, as the program is defined
- Involve stakeholders from the beginning
- Consider the context and type of the organization and environment when deciding how, what and when to measure
The Maria Latimore Group will implement these and other best practices to plan, analyze and execute the outcome measurement strategy for your mission-critical programs.
