About NAVA STRATEGY

Nava means ‘beautiful sound’ in Farsi. We bring a beautiful sound to your journey.

We help to clarify the right opportunities, to identify core competencies and to act on emerging opportunities. A strategy is simply about the right resources in the right direction at the right time. Nava’s process follows functional expertise, objective opinion, and stress-testing the road map to your vision. We use equity, creativity, empathy and relational approaches.

Our clients: social entrepreneurs, cooperatives, non-profits and those in education, retail, music, multi-media and entertainment, and service providers.

How can you best use your limited resources to solve your most pressing issues? Nava helps provide powerful strategic planning and capacity building to help you get results. We know it’s easy to lose sight of what is really concerning you by being very close to the situation – where do you focus next? What’s working? Clear problem identification is key. Recognizing the gaps in the current state is a necessary link to desired goals by finding credible metrics and tools to achieve impact. Don’t let the big opportunity be missed, or worse, poorly executed.

Areas of Practice

Nonprofits

Nonprofits are overworked and stretched. There is a need to track measurements and impacts without losing sight of the important work provided for clients. Unsure of outcome measurements? Testing a new initiative? Want to catalyze innovation with concrete guidance? We help to address, how a nonprofit can scale, evolve and adapt effectively.

Businesses

Only 1 in 11 businesses achieve sustainable growth (Bain & Co). Scaling is not easy in a hyper-competitive market. Wanting to deliver improvements, make smart decisions or drive growth are strategic questions. We help to address how do you create value for purpose, people and planet effectively.

Creatives

The way people consume and interact with art is constantly in flux. Distribution, revenue streams, customer markets, purchasing habits, and other relationships are ever evolving. The landscape is hyper-competitive. The internet and technology are so pervasive. We help to address, how to leverage the best ideas into promising opportunities.
