Mind and Hand Associates helps colleges and universities tackle some of their most strategic issues. We know how to work with students, faculty and staff to distinguish between presenting problems and underlying issues, work through problems, prioritize activities, and improve results.
Each institution has a unique fingerprint – its own combination of values, history, capabilities, environment and aspirations – that can be used as the foundation for innovation and renewal. Mind and Hand Associates can help uncover these combinations and create the strategies, processes and metrics that lead to success and continuous improvement.
We work with organizations to focus externally and improve internally, and take a long-term view of challenges and opportunities to make better short-term decisions. A solid understanding of organizational and market realities and a thoughtful analysis of alternatives and trade-offs are at the heart of strategy, and we can help with this.
Mind and Hand Associates helps schools analyze internal and external information and present it in such a way that helps cut through organizational politics to produce meaningful discussions about results, resources, and academic direction. Mind and Hand Associates can facilitate a process that allows diverse groups to view the facts, discuss alternatives, and collaboratively chart the future.
