What We Offer
KANAVA experts collaborate with institutions in developing countries and elsewhere to implement the firm’s proprietary Impact Strengthening Development (ISD) tool, a practical resource to improve organizations’ management systems -- helping them become more sustainable while making them more effective stewards of donor funds and stronger partners.
KANAVA's Impact Strengthening Development (ISD) tool has helped measure and improve the management capacity of international development professionals and organizations, from West Africa to Cambodia, Afghanistan, and the United States. Using a systematic approach, which will soon be available online, KANAVA experts guide organizations through the nine building blocks of effective management, helping them identify gaps and devise a strategy for addressing them.
ISD empowers organizations to see the big picture, understanding how each business process -- from human resources to financial management -- fits with the others. Once the pieces of the puzzle are viewed together and the challenges an organization faces become clear, KANAVA can work in partnership with management to help address these challenges through customized, customer-driven technical assistance.
To learn more about ISD or to request an assessment, please contact us at info[at]kanavainternational.com.
