Organizational Progress

About our Practice

Organizational Progress exists because we believe organizations want to be sustainable with their solutions – they are close to the problem and therefore closest to implementing the processes!

But we recognize the system your organization exists in – both externally with funders, community members, etc and internally with boards, leadership, and direct workers.  We’ll look at what you have so far and give you the confidence and boost you need to be successful.

Kate and Anna are currently two associates assisting with these services. We also leverage social work and management interns, typically employing 5 in a given semester, supporting our VODA program.

Organizational Progress is an initiative sponsored by Kovir LLC.

What You Can Expect

Fresh Ideas



Book a Discovery Call

We’ll ask you about what changes your agency needs, where your pain points, where and who are your strengths, and we’ll be transparent about pricing and next steps.

Onboarding & Assessment

We’ll ask you to share what documents, data, and processes you currently have related to the project. In the meantime, we’ll be setting you up on our project management tool to share outlines of tasks and timelines. 

Road Map Draft

We provide you with a first very rough draft of our observations and propose recommendations about our next steps together. We ask that you provide review and comment to ensure we are going in the correct direction. With those comments, we do a second complete draft and together we do final tweaks until leadership is in agreement about the deliverables and budget.


We are getting to work on the policies, procedures, descriptions, reports, and infrastructure updates including meeting with team members, submitting drafts, and facilitating committee meetings as needed for your projects.

Reassess the Relationship

At the checkpoint, we ask if you’d like to keep working together and, if so, what additional support or caps would you like to have in place. We’ll update the timeline and start the cycle again!
