How We Work

  • Build a coherent vision of where and how your company can create shared value, that is, increase competitiveness and profitability by helping to solve a social or environmental problem, and how to structure a process to get there—through analysis, visioning, and coaching.

  • Identify and seize key opportunities for your business and effective ways to use them—through collaborative strategy development.

  • Determine how to proceed from strategy to action—through landscaping, benchmarking, and initiative design, and by tapping FSG’s extensive stakeholder networks.

  • Support implementation through internal alignment, partnership brokering, and coalition building to improve the relevant market ecosystem.

  • Design measurement and learning systems to help the company understand how creating social impact drives business results, to enable incremental value creation, and to understand and manage the Economics of Impact.

Case Studies

The FSG team is different from other consultants. They don't just throw out a bunch of recommendations and leave; they really care about helping us make an impact in the world and in our business.

A lot of times a consultant helps you put a notebook on the shelf. What we developed was a strategy that is tied to the corporate strategy and is having a direct impact on what we’re doing from a business and a social impact perspective. FSG helped us create the right tools, training, and process.
