Strategic direction and capacity building

In the same way that new information and new perspectives can support changes outside your organization, a fresh look can also prompt internal adjustments. Harbinger helps you gather, analyze, and interpret critical information and perspectives to inform decisions about how to move forward.

Harbinger’s economic and policy analyses typically result in a slate of recommendations for program development, leverage points for greater impact, and strategies likely to bear fruit.

Harbinger also works directly with businesses and nonprofits on organizational improvement. Is your company or organization is just getting by, leaving much of its potential unrealized? Harbinger can help you rediscover innovation, efficiency, and fulfillment—and make your organization great. Because “good enough” never is.
