With this dedicated professional, you have more time for your work while your organization is able to more effectively measure and share its overall impact including the outcomes of dollars and time invested in its mission and programs. The Fractional CIO starts with an impact review to understand your organization’s existing impact efforts and needs, and to inform the type and amount of fractional CIO services to be provided to you. The Fractional CIO works with you to create a customized plan of services to meet your specific needs.

Examples of services provided by the Fractional CIO include, but are not limited to:

We Help in Other Ways, Too!
Additional Service Offerings.

Impact Measurement & Reporting

While you are diligently working for a better world, choose Greater for Good to help you quantify and communicate the difference your organization is making. We call it impact revelation because it reveals to the world the greatness you do.

Through our Impact Measurement & Reporting Offering, we can:

  • Handle your current impact reporting as required by grantors
  • Leverage existing impact measures or help you define new ones to report your organization’s impact to your specified audiences
  • Design custom infographics for your website or print that gives partners and prospective donors an instant understanding of why your work matters and is worthy of their support.

When your impact is shown, it becomes known, enabling you to grow your capacity for good!

Data Driven Decision Enablement

Data is key to making wise leadership and operational decisions. Basing those decisions on the wrong data is just as bad or worse than using no data at all. Greater for Good works with nonprofits to get the data-backed answers they need to make wise decisions that advance their mission. Using our Decisions with Precision Process, we define the data needed to operate efficiently and show how the nonprofit is making a difference so it can garner more support.

It begins with knowing the right questions to ask, the ones you need to answer so you know which decisions to make. From there we work with you to drill down to the data you need for the insight you want. We also help you determine how to access it so you are always ready to make decisions with confidence.

Data Strategy

Data is requisite for measuring and communicating the impact of your organization’s work. While many mission-driven organizations are accustomed to providing data to meet reporting requirements, they often fail to harness the power of data to improve their programming, fine-tune their operations, and reveal their collective organizational impact. Data is an asset to be managed. Greater for Good helps you identify your data needs and defines a data strategy to ensure you can access the data you need when you need it.

Strategic Planning & Implementation

Achieving greatness isn’t accidental. You need a well-defined mission, clear goals, and a smart strategy that delivers attainment. Greater for Good uses proven strategy models and facilitation to enable you to formulate a practical and mission-centric strategy that helps you hit your targets and make a more positive impact. We not only facilitate the strategic planning process, but we can also provide the project planning and management to transform strategy from talk into action and achievement. This offering is typically scoped to the entirety of an organization, but can be scaled down, if appropriate.

Program Definition & Implementation

When you discover a new way to further your cause, call on us to help you design your new program for sustainability and measurable effectiveness. Greater for Good works with you to identify the program concept, mission alignment, expected outcomes, and impact measures. We conduct research, if desired, to identify programmatic best practices, and potential funding sources related to the new program. Additionally, we offer program implementation services that identify the tasks and individuals required to make the program a reality, and we provide oversight for successful task execution. Go ahead and grow! We’ll prevent the growing pains.

Organizational Assessment & Process Re-Engineering

Your resources are precious. Make the most of them by replacing wasteful workflows with performance-boosting practices. We provide an objective analysis of your organizational health that identifies your strengths and how to eliminate your weaknesses. Greater for Good also provides process mapping to document and refine existing practices. While organizational assessments are typically scoped to the full organization, if appropriate, Greater for Good can scale the scope to accommodate only one or multiple areas of your organization.

Meeting Planning & Facilitation

Get the most from your meetings via a trained facilitator who sets clear objectives, keeps discussions on track, and enables you to identify and take the next steps to advancement. Using active listening and mediation principles, Greater for Good facilitation elicits the wisdom of your group and achieves a consensus when needed.  Whether defining your strategy or designing your staff retreat, we’re here to enable your success.

Team Building

Bring your talent together to achieve greater synergy. Greater for Good gathers data from your team to detect in which areas—trust, communication, alignment, fulfillment, and leadership—your team needs fortification. We custom-design our team building events to meet your goals, team size, and time constraints. While having a fun, memorable, and enjoyable experience, team members also unearth their stumbling blocks and work as a team to create a plan to address those challenges and become stronger together.

Keynote Addresses

Greater for Good’s Founder and President Darla Marburger got her start behind the microphone announcing little league baseball games at age 12. Since that time, she has used public speaking to earn scholarships, emcee events, advocate for education, and motivate groups and individuals to engage in positive change. Her audiences have included the U.S. Congress, national and state associations, and community organizations. In every instance, she appreciates the opportunity to touch hearts through spoken word.

What People Say About Us

“Government agencies don’t always change readily or embrace new concepts happily. On multiple occasions, I watched with excitement as Darla helped introduce new ideas, technologies, and approaches to well-established bureaucracies – with articulate proposals, with clarification of complexities, with quality delivery of services, and, honestly, with an infectious cheerfulness. For more than 7 years she was an excellent teacher, colleague, and consultant with whom I was honored to work alongside.”
