To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve

Describe a recent change in your organization that resulted from feedback.
We recently used an extensive round of survey and interview driven feedback to inform a shift in our program model that is now reflected in our current three-year strategic plan Based on comments and ideas from our partners and other external stakeholders, we realized that we need to segment our programs more concretely based on an organization's level of development as well as better tailor our onboarding for new partners to effectively assess their capacity and stage of development at the outset of our relationship This has led to a complete shift in how we assess our partners' capacity and direct them into our various programs Now when a partner is brought on they receive a full diagnostic and are put into programs that reflect their unique and holistic developmental needs
