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, TAC Strategies helps organizations perform honest self-assessments and develop and put into place a practical response plan.

Services include performance improvement at the program or organization level. We help
organizations with full-scale turnarounds as they look to:
– Improve profitability
– Exit or enter new markets
– Oversee a new leadership transition
– Analysis of individual business lines to determine if programmatic or financial
improvements are achievable
– Coach or train leaders in how to implement the changes needed


One of the few firms dedicated to performance improvement and turnarounds, our consulting team has worked with high performing and struggling organizations over 25 years.  Our deep expertise in supporting organizations to diagnose and address both discrete and deep organizational challenges is a specialized area of service unique in the nonprofit field.  We have developed performance improvement strategies and indicators for multiple organizations, have supported wholesale organizational turnarounds, and supported countless organizations to identify the need for changes to mission focus, program and business lines, entrepreneurial expansion, and better understanding of their external operating environments to assure community impact and mission success.
