About Us

Ascendant is a different kind of consultancy. Our mission is to help social and public sector organizations increase their impact. We work with leading nonprofits, government agencies, and foundations to develop performance management systems that enable organizations to better achieve their mission.

Ascendant was founded by strategy management experts with a passion for making a difference in the world. Our focus is on advancing management of non-profits, associations, and foundations. We believe we can do this by working closely with our clients in implementing strategy management and measurement frameworks as well as creating a collaborative environment to help them work closely with their donors and peers to accomplish their missions.

Our founding staff and connected partners all have more than 10 years of experience in implementing the Balanced Scorecard, but they also have extensive experience in working with non-profit organizations. We have helped large government organizations as well as small regional non-profits. We have worked closely with foundations and associations. Our work is typically at the senior executive level and directly with the board of directors.
