Helping you to become better stewards
A Clearer Picture
It is important to see the link between what you do, the decisions you take and the costs they generate. We can help you
to take a fresh look at your management information, improving it's presentation and achieving a better understanding
of your costs.
What is Most Important?
Once you know what activities generate what costs you can assess their contribution to your impact. Some will be more critical than others. We can help you and your team carry out a structured assessment using the right amount of data analysis.
Thinking Outside the Box
Innovation in the way you do things can reduce the costs of those activities which you really need to do. Using the up to date tools of 'hacking' and 'design thinking', together with our extensive organisational experience, we help you to identify cost reductions.
Today, donors increasingly look to understand what you achieve for the money you spend. This sits alongside their emotional response to your cause. PlanLab can help you to review your impact measures and costs, ensuring they are clearly communicated.
