Our thanks for your support in the management of this senior-level planning and dialogue exercise. You did not act merely as a consultant, but from day one you mutated into one of us. I was personally impressed by your spirit of organization and method, and by your keen familiarity with what we do.
Is your organization or group collaborating effectively? Can you improve the way you work with others? Are your current consensus building techniques and institutional arrangements effective? CBI engages in leading-edge research and evaluation to answer these questions and more. We do not conduct outsider-driven, academic studies but instead conduct practical, interactive, participant-driven studies to determine what works — and what doesn’t. And when collaboration, negotiation, and consensus building techniques and practices are implemented, we help clients determine how to measure outcomes and use their findings to further advance objectives and goals.
CBI practitioners use a range of tools to gather feedback and data, including:
- Web-based surveys
- 360-degree assessments
- In-depth confidential interviews
- Careful reviews of bylaws and other governance documents
CBI effectively engages stakeholders in:
- Multiple rounds of goal setting
- Data collection
- Practical problem solving
CBI's findings are provided in several formats, including:
- Technical charts and graphics
- Fact sheets
- PowerPoint presentations
