Screening Ccriteria

We believe that the right client is the prerequisite for a successful and complete consulting project. When considering whether an NGO is suitable to be our client or not, we primarily judge from five aspects of development stage, organizational size, the core team, program objectives and scope, and brand/influence.

 

Development Stages

      Reference index: established time, preliminary strategy understanding/strategy implementation/strategy restructuring, etc.

 

Organizational Size

      Reference index: the number of employees, annual budget, the number of projects, etc

 

Core Team

      Reference index: team quality, recognition degree of organizational decision makers/council, importance degree of agency heads, long-term-stay in Beijing or not, idea consensus and cooperative attitude, etc.

 

Program Objectives and Scope

      Reference index: whether problems encountered are suitable to resolve by consulting projects or not, whether they are related to the implementation of specific programs or not, whether the project workload/scale ABC can bear or not, whether suitable and matching volunteers can be found or not, etc.

 

Brand/Influence

     Reference index:popularity, awards, main funders, industry rankings and social influence, etc.
