Building community, empowering teams, expanding markets, inspiring advocacy require active, focused and strategic communication tactics that align with a contextualized strategy. Whether in-person, online, next-door or "next gen," the basics of engagement are constant: you must know your audience and deliver compelling messages that resonate.
Now more than ever, teams and organizations that are able to adapt to changing contexts are the ones that will not just survive but thrive. Acute Incite's experience in Adaptive Management is unrivaled in the international development space and our methods are just as applicable to Fortune 500 companies as they are to small community-based organizations. From USAID's collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) Framework to Scrum-based operations, our process improvement support produces results.
We have experience designing, facilitating and implementing the following Adaptive Management processes:
Building on decades of combined experience by our team working both in-person and in globally disbursed virtual networks, our team has a proven track record of building and supporting learning networks and Communities of Practice for international donors, implementing partners, sector-specific practitioners, and topic- and location-based communities.
Our team has significant experience creating innovative, interactive and engaged learning events both in-person and online that result in improved collaboration, continuous learning, and empowered participants. We've developed and facilitated events for national and multi-national funders who want to work more closely together; practitioners who want to create catalytic co-created initiatives; and stakeholders working to address systematic challenges.
Rare is the consulting firm that has both the content and process experience to provide effective, engaging and practical capacity building. We have demonstrated both, and have done so online and in-person. We have designed and delivered skills-based learning products for universities, organizations, development donors and communities on topics including USAID's collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) Framework, Theory of Change, Scenario Planning and Knowledge Management.
Eisenhower once famously stated: "I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable." We tend to agree (to a point). We support the notion that the real value in a plan is an effective, multidimensional process used to develop—and then iterate and adapt—a plan based on rigorous and dynamic monitoring and evaluation. We pride ourselves in being able to facilitate engaging, co-creative processes to create practical, measurable, and adaptable plans that are useful for all appropriate stakeholders.
Designing and delivering a staff training on USAID-required approaches. Supporting Adaptive Management plan creation or leading KM Strategy development. Facilitating a team retreat, a multi-stakeholder learning event or a strategic planning session . . . AI is available for a variety of short-term, deliverable-based assignments pegged to daily rate estimates.
It's not always cost-effective to carry full-time experts on a lean team with changing needs. Acute Incite offers a more cost-effective and strategic model that provides peace of mind that comes from knowing you have access to the skills you need; combined with the cost-effectiveness of leveraging resources only as they are needed.
Because we have developed our networks, skills, approaches and reputation over decades or experience and dozens of countries, we are able to effectively find full-time specialized expertise when our clients need, in a more nimble and cost-effective manner than traditional recruiting or expensive headhunters.
We are certified with the SBA as a HUBZone company.
