We work through your governing documents and frameworks to provide assurance that the organisation’s constitution, associated charters and policies are best aligned with your strategic objectives and current best practice governance arrangements. Our team will also work with you to ensure that the governance arrangements, including membership and governance positions best meet your needs.
Our expert advisors will work with your organisational leadership to refine and refocus a clearly articulated mission, vision and values for you that reinforces strategic clarity in your purpose as an organisation.
Having established strategic and corporate governance focus, Parbery will help you implement measurement frameworks that enable you to best tell your story of impact and change. Business plan development, action plans and other measures that provide accountability and performance oversight will be employed.
In collaboration with your team, Parbery will identify, design, execute, document, measure, monitor, and control both automated and non-automated business processes to achieve better and consistent outcomes.
Parbery’s approach to BPM involves reviewing enabling technologies and recommending technologies to meet your needs. We will identify and implement streamlined processes for workflow, digitise paper forms and develop strategies for automation where opportunities arise. Be it an ERP, CRM, FMIS or HCM solution that you are seeking, or something else, we have the expertise in identifying the right system for your need and project managing the implementation and change management process. Critically, we are also able to work with you to eradicate duplication across systems and improve the flow of information to ensure accuracy and integrity in your important data.
Our BPM approach is founded on designs that make it easier for your organisation and its people to manage its information, which we do by developing improved processes for workflow and implementing strategies, like top-down architecture to improve business flows and access to information.
Our CFO Advisory capability has the flexibility to be able to deliver strategic financial leadership at a level that suits your organisational need, size and budget. Whether you require periodic insight and advice to support the Board and CEO in their decision-making or a more regular engagement to provide leadership for your finance team, Parbery can provide the executive financial leadership you need.
Parbery consultants have the experience to review your finance function, identify areas for improvement and implement effective changes. Functional improvements that will enhance performance and your understanding of your organisation’s operations in areas such as budgeting, forecasting, reporting, processing, tax concessions, revenue and cost management.
Every FPO, regardless of its size, will have reporting obligations: to funding bodies; to regulators; and to various other stakeholders. Parbery has extensive expertise in preparing organisations for external audit to minimise auditor time and cost. We can even represent your organisation when engaging with auditors so you can remain focussed on BAU. Further, our consultants can use their experience to develop internal audit solutions and improve your compliance reporting across the board.
HRM is the practice of attracting, developing, rewarding, and retaining employees for the benefit of each employee and the organisation. HRM does not stand in isolation as an HR function. Instead it is a whole of organisation focus, led by the HR team, to commit and support your staff to achieve the objectives of the organisation. Parbery understands this and is the ideal partner to your organisation as you evolve your HRM strategy.
Underlying the strategic approach to HRM is aligning the functional resourcing and practice of your HR team. We have a significant depth of expertise that can be applied to FPOs of all sizes, to ensure that the resourcing of your team is optimised, functional responsibilities are appropriately allocated and that clear frameworks of practice are implemented. The depth of our experience means that Parbery can provide expertise in a complete range of functional services, including HR policy and procedure reviews, recruitment through to termination practice, payroll, and training and development.
Parbery understands the need for robust systems with the longevity to underpin success for the long term. We will work with you to identify systems and frameworks that are effective and suitable to enable your HR team to best serve your staff. We are here to support you through the implementation of change and remain on-hand for as long as you need to sustain HRM improvements.
An over-reliance on a dominant revenue source is a particular risk for many FPOs, particularly those organisations whose primary income source is either government income or fundraising. Identifying opportunities for alternative income sources and implementing cogent strategies is the value that Parbery consultants can bring to your organisation’s revenue plan.
Understanding the grants process and optimising the success rate for applications and the return available is the holy grail for many FPO organisations. Parbery consultants have extensive experience at all ends of the process, from developing the initial opportunity frameworks, to developing applications, through to the assessment and decision-making stages and then the management of awarded grants. This experience gives us a unique insight and you the best possible opportunity to maximise your grant application and management process.
The opportunities to boost your revenue come from finding value in the work you do and matching that to opportunities that turn your expertise into a recurring investment towards your mission. Our business development proficiency will help you develop the business case, modelling and organisational transformations required to tap into that extra revenue stream.
As with all our FPO services, the focus is on you and your organisation: what do you need and how can we help you to address your need? In developing a Health Check approach, Parbery consultants learn about your organisation from you and work with you to customise a review that addresses areas of impact for your organisation. That may mean a focussed review on a key function or a broader review of two or more functional areas of your organisation.
A Parbery Health Check will result in a plan for action. We endeavour to provide more than an observation of what the current state of play is for your organisation. Parbery will identify the opportunities for change and provide a pathway to realising the positive changes that can be made. Whether it is focussed on your operations in finance, HR, governance, systems, customer and stakeholder engagement, and business sustainability, or another area, we will provide a way forward and the ways we can support you.
The Parbery Health Check is an opportunity to utilise independent expertise to provide assurance that the organisation is well placed to face the challenges of tomorrow. Evaluation and change are critical to your continued capacity for impact and sustainability and our Health Check reviews will always have your future needs at the heart of the process.
