Performance Improvement & Turnarounds

When the path forward needs to change

We literally wrote the book on Nonprofit Turnarounds because so many organizations need help to improve when they are often unsure of what to do. Applying many of the diagnostic and change methods outlined in our book, Glick Davis & Associates helps organizations perform honest self-assessments and develop and put into place a practical response plan.
