Here is a just a small sample of recent work from Bernuth & Williamson. Contact us if you’d like more information.
- Carnegie Endowment for International Peace – As part of a larger strategic planning process for this $30m global think tank, B&W provided recommendations for restructuring such functions as program oversight, communications, and support services (including finance and operations.) These proposals reflected both the findings of an organizational capacity assessment and nonprofit best practices.
- Chautauqua Institution – For this 150-year-old, $35m cultural institution, B&W led a comprehensive organizational design project, including overhauling the systems, structure, skills, and staffing for all of Chautauqua’s key support functions (finance, operations, HR, IT, and facilities). This restructuring, currently being implemented, culminated a year-long strategic planning engagement facilitated by B&W.
- Asia Foundation – For this $110m global development organization, which operates in 18 countries and multiple locations in the US, B&W led an exercise to craft a new organizational design that would better provide governance and support services to this widely distributed enterprise. In this case B&W used a scenario-planning approach to secure buy-in from all affected components of the organization.
- Population Action International – PAI is a $14m global organization that advances the right to affordable contraception and quality reproductive health care to women. Over the past four years, PAI has experienced rapid growth that caused its support functions to be stretched thin. B&W launched a comprehensive process that evaluated the pain points of internal and external consumer, reviewed systems and processes, and benchmarked staffing against several organizations similar in size and scope.
