Consulting

Our Approach to Consulting

Our understanding of the interconnectedness of social impact efforts is based on our global experience working on a wide range of issues. We work closely with clients and stakeholders to develop customized solutions, blending research, strategy, learning, and evaluation.

An engagement with FSG is characterized by a thoughtfully structured, yet flexible and adaptive, project management plan. We use facilitation techniques for stakeholder engagement that allow new ideas to be generated and create space for honest discussion of challenges and conflicts, while also enabling a synthesis to emerge that will inform action. Every project draws on our 20-year history of creating cross-sector social impact around the world.

Our global experience with a variety of issues allows us to bring a comprehensive and sophisticated understanding of how social change happens at the nexus of interconnected issues, such as health, education, and economic mobility.

Creating equitable change requires a deep understanding of systems thinking and systems change. FSG’s comfort working in complex environments enables us to adopt a systems perspective in gathering and synthesizing data, generating insights, and making recommendations.

At FSG, we seek to better understand the root causes of disparity, which are often rooted in structural racism and other systemic inequities, and the way those factors influence our clients, partners, and the communities they serve. 

This includes development and implementation of collective impact and shared value, and cutting-edge research on market innovations, systems change, and impact investing. FSG has six global offices in the United States, Europe, and India.
