Nonprofit Management:

The Balanced Advantage


Through application of the Balanced Scorecard approach to organizational performance management, Donna gives organizations the tools they need to turn strategy into action. The Balanced Scorecard offers a proven best practice to ensure that your strategic objectives, once established, are effectively communicated and executed, giving your organization what Donna calls “the balanced advantage”.


The process of strategic goal setting centers on robust conversation and collaboration that considers the interests of board members, executive directors, staff and stakeholders.  Donna’s facilitation skills allow her to guide groups through sometimes difficult conversations, helping them stay focused on the mission.
