We use market research, stakeholder interviews, competitor/peer analysis, landscape scans, SWOT analysis, (big) data visualization, and other techniques to understand and map the systemic context for strategic engagement and action.
We provide research-based strategic analysis for non-profit organizations, private foundations, and government programs to ensure that programs are clearly defined, well-communicated, and effectively aligned to achieve mission objectives.
We partner with Boards and executive teams to develop detailed, scenario-based plans for program and organizational development that include, as appropriate: financial modeling, revenue approaches, resource allocation options, timelines, milestones, and metrics.
We use information design to bring clarity and understanding to complex and otherwise confusing data and information. Good information design reveals otherwise hidden insights to support informed and intelligent decision-making.
We offer 1-hour, 2-hour, half-day, and full-day workshops to teach you and your colleagues the fundamentals of how information design can be applied effectively, by individuals and in teams, to understand, analyze, and communicate complex topics.
We have done a lot to inspire our staff to use stories to change behaviors. TRUTHstudio's workshop on data and information visualization helped our staff understand how and why they should use visuals, not just words, to tell their stories. The presentation... could have intimidated staff but, instead it motivated them to apply what they learned to their projects.
In the strategic analysis completed for our funders’ group, I particularly appreciated TRUTHstudio’s ability to listen carefully to stakeholder input, draw meaningful connections between different perspectives, and challenge collective assumptions about what strategies have been most effective.
TRUTHstudio created a set of graphics-rich slides for our stakeholder group that clearly communicate the strategic rationale for purchasers to prioritize certain spend categories, based on supply chain environmental risks and opportunities. Without these slides, it would be very difficult to communicate the concept.
TRUTHstudio does a remarkable job of translating complex information and abstract ideas into a coherent presentation, making it much easier to communicate the value proposition, rather than getting lost in the details.
TRUTHstudio invented an entirely new way for us to communicate clearly with key corporate and investor audiences about complex market transformations underway in Latin America. We are thrilled to have TRUTHstudio as an ongoing collaborator in our work.
TRUTHstudio’s ability to distill insights and visually communicate complex ideas is remarkable. On a short timeframe and with a limited budget, they produced one of the most impressive strategic analyses I have received from any consultant. It has been invaluable to us.
The business plan created by TRUTHstudio enabled our stakeholder group to launch an entirely new organization—the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council—that is now an established, influential force in the marketplace.
I use large datasets and complex methodologies to understand the global economy and its environmental impacts. The illustrations and visualization methods developed by TRUTHstudio have been invaluable for translating this work to academic and non-academic audiences, alike.
TRUTHstudio’s Economy Map offers a unique method for visually representing the entire global economy, and its adaptation for the EU 7th Framework Programme CREEA project helped us to clearly communicate the material footprint of global consumption.
In a one-hour ‘crash course,' TRUTHstudio provided our mid-career professional students a toolkit for using visual methods to think and communicate clearly about complex issues.
We are fortunate to have TRUTHstudio as a thinking partner to help us visualize new, captivating ways to communicate the complexity of the oil sector's climate impacts.
