PLANNING + DESIGN + MANAGEMENT
Make a difference to the people and places you care about most
What impact do you want to make?
Filling a Community Need
Means taking the critical first step to see your effort succeed: define the impact it needs to have.
Once you’ve done that, build the right team of experts and influencers and watch the change start to happen.

If the solution is to build something important . . .

find a better solution
We have seen too many good ideas fail. One way we overcome this is connecting with the community from the very beginning. It reduces the exclusion that often breeds resistance to a change and aligns the effort with community interests.
