Early coordination and open lines of communication are key to achieving your organization’s policy goals. Penn Hill Group can help plan and implement strategic policy convenings that will help you:
- Better connect practice and policy
- Restructure your organization
- Develop, align or reimagine organizational mission, goals and strategy
- Coordinate and align grantee work
- Address your organization’s general needs
We will be with you from the beginning to the end. We help you pick the issues, invite the right stakeholders and develop the right strategy for a single-day convening or a series of convenings over a specific time period. We also help create the agenda, prepare content, and lead or manage sessions. Our belief is that we can get you to your goal more efficiently—we actively work to use only the time and resources necessary to produce the outcomes and action steps you want and need.
Penn Hill Group brings new and innovative techniques, such as design thinking, to the table when appropriate. Design thinking, first used in the tech startup world, is a human-centered process that employs multiple viewpoints and perspectives and encourages fast collaboration and prototyping to explore issues and find solutions. In the policy world, this process allows for free and focused thinking and encourages out-of-the-box ideas grounded in a deep understanding of Federal policy.
We have lead multiple successful convenings for national and local organizations. In addition, Kara Marchione and Danica Petroshius have received certification in components of design thinking. Our services can include single day convenings or a series of convenings over a specific time period.
