– Capco, the global management and technology consultancy, and Cranfield Trust have partnered to digitally transform Cranfield Trust’s Journey to Excellence© impact framework.

Cranfield Trust is the UK’s leading provider of pro-bono management consultancy services to UK charities, delivering circa 400 projects a year. 

As part of its consultancy offering, Cranfield Trust utilizes an impact assessment framework entitled Journey to Excellence (J2E)© through which pre and post project evaluations are conducted on four areas of the client’s organization – Leadership and Strategic Direction; People Management; Financial Management and Sustainability; and Performance and Impact. 

Over a three-month period, Capco’s Impact Consulting team successfully automated the process through which client responses are captured. The team also revamped the graphical interfaces used for external client and internal Board reporting. The results of this work have directly led to time savings equivalent to over 600 hours per annum.

Members of Capco’s Associate Data Programme supported the core team’s development activities, and to complete the project an online hands-on training course was conducted for over 15 Cranfield Trust participants.

Alice Dabrowska, Head of Consultancy at Cranfield Trust, said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Capco and the data that Cranfield Trust has is phenomenally important. It is, dare I say it, leading edge in the sector. I have done heaps of research on evaluation and impact, delivered training classes and feel like I can say this with some authority”

Mike Ethelston, UK Managing Partner at Capco, said: “We are very pleased to have had this opportunity to share our deep domain knowledge around data and digital transformation to support Cranfield Trust in delivering this project. We look forward to building upon our successful partnership to continue to bring the benefits of digitalization and automation to the charity consultancy sector.”
