• Are you considering adding or expanding a program to better serve your clients & mission? 

• Want to hear from intended beneficiaries whether they really need and would use it? 

• Need to understand the program's "competition" and likely supporters?

• Need help creating the program’s design and a feasible plan to implement it?

Listening First: Community and Market Research

It is critical to listen to prospective constituents about their real needs and receptivity to a new program idea. It's also imperative to understand your market and clarify your value proposition. Players already in the field are your potential partners or your competition for resources.
