Research & Consultancy
Do you have a management problem that needs a solution? Perhaps you
do not have enough time to find out about new markets, research prospective
donors or explore new fundraising techniques? Perhaps you wish to devise
or develop a strategic or business plan for a new or existing organisation.
gillasssociates.com can help by undertaking research on your behalf,
reporting and recommending on management issues and facilitating your
business planning process. Services include:
Developing strategic and business plans.
Many organisations struggle along without the aid of the ‘road map’ which
a good strategic plan can provide and, as the old saying goes, ‘If
you don’t know where you’re going, you’re sure
to end up somewhere else!’ TGA takes a highly practical, partnership
approach to business and strategic planning. This might involve us
in elements of market research, discussions with all your ‘key
stakeholders’ and in the facilitation of a process of meetings
and discussions designed to produce visionary yet deliverable strategic
and business plans.
Market and donor research. TGA can assist you in researching
new markets (for example new geographical markets for fundraising
or sales work), identifying and researching new donors (individuals,
trusts and foundations, government sources, etc) and researching
new fundraising techniques (for example pay roll giving, challenge
events, face to face fundraising, legacy giving, etc). Organisations
might also choose to use TGA to conduct market research with current
donors aimed at testing satisfaction levels and developing new fundraising
methods (typically involving questionnaires, telephone interviews
and focus groups).
