The principal of Managing Excellence, David Hastings, MBA, has developed strategic plans in his consultancies for community non profit organizations of all sizes as well as led strategic planning efforts as an executive staff member at institutions of higher education including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts and Harvard universities.
When organizations have found themselves dealing with challenges that threaten the viability of their organization, Managing Excellence has been the consulting firm of choice when time if of the essence, creativity is required, and bringing the organization’s various constituencies together is valued.
As the owners of a non profit corporation, the effective functioning of the Board of Directors is key to an organization’s very survival. Managing Excellence has brought several Boards together to re-envision their structure, improve their competencies and re-commit themselves to the successful oversight of their community’s resource.
Leaders can benefit from unbiased and confidential advice when challenges present themselves and they find themselves in unchartered territory. Frequently, this type of consultancy can be quite brief, and used strategically for the executive to test new ideas in front of a fresh audience with four decades of professional experience, being the beneficiary of unfettered feedback and critical suggestions.
