Setting all the moving parts into gear is no easy feat. Catalystas can help you balance, bringing the pieces of your projects together into a holistic strategic action plan and sparking transformation and impact. From helping maintain internal processes to building capacity, expanding activities, and supporting program implementation, Catalystas is here to assist you in smoothing the transition from thinking to doing.
We offer support in
Gender isn't just a buzzword; it's an ethos. Catalystas can help make sure your activities - both internal and external - are inclusive and understanding of the different barriers and needs faced by men, women, and nonbinarypeople, as well as the strengths and perspectives they bring. We can modernize your policies, develop action plans for gender-sensitive implementation, and identify areas for improvement with tailored recommendations.
Effective leadership is the key to effective execution. Catalystas can work directly with the leadership of your organization to examine and assess internal processes, identify problems, and prepare tailored solutions. We provide coaching and training, change-management assistance, strategy development, and operational improvement support, all aimed at ensuring execution readiness.
(Interim) Project Implementation:
If your team is stretched to capacity, Catalystas is here to help. We can provide support throughout the implementation phase of your project, bringing clear communication, timely and cost-effective delivery of results, and strong leadership and management skills that will help your team achieve their full potential. We have experience handling complex, multifaceted environments, balancing responsibilities, and tracking progress towards milestones and objectives - whether at the beginning, middle, or end stage of a project. We will ensure that your project stays on track, handing you the reins once your team is fully prepared to take over the implementation process.
Expansion Strategy Advising:
Expansion doesn't always come naturally. Once you've tested your pilot project successfully, Catalystas can help your organization build a multilayered strategic approach to expansion, replication, or aggregation. We can ensure your findings are valid and backed by data, design a new expanded methodology and accompanying monitoring and evaluation framework, develop a roadmap and action plan for steps to roll out expansion activities, and prepare your team for implementation.
In today's largely virtual world, it is more important than ever that your organization be effectively "plugged in". Catalystas can help your team ensure a smooth transition from in-person to digital program activities - in particular with regard to continuing programming during Covid-19. We can support you in bringing your team and your beneficiaries online, choosing the right platforms, maintaining high quality security standards and good "cyber hygiene", and organizing online systems for ease of access, continuation, and future expansion.
Online & Offline Training:
Consistent capacity building is essential for growth, development, and effective program implementation. Catalystas designs and delivers tailored trainings, in-person or remotely, to support your team in advancing their skills and knowledge, learning new techniques and methods, and boosting the capabilities of your organization. We offer trainings in both thematic and technical topics, including diplomatic communications, gender sensitivity, digitization, blockchain and fintech, economic empowerment, and marketing, among other subjects.
