Areas of Expertise

Stakeholder Engagement:
All too often development efforts have been driven by the outside with little or no consultation from the poor, local institutions or Government.

Mosaic believes that for sustainable development to occur local people must be central to the development effort. Mosaic views participatory development as a process of collaborative problem-solving and reflection that empowers individuals to transform their environment.

Mosaic employs a family of approaches and techniques to enable the poor, institutions or Government to better understand, plan and define their development efforts. Mosaic will facilitate workshops with a wide range of stakeholders: the poor, NGOs, private sector; prepare handbooks on participatory techniques, undertake research to disseminate findings and conduct training workshops in participatory tools and methods.

Participatory & Utilization-based Evaluations:
Mosaic will tailor an evaluation to suit your needs. This may vary from conventional evaluations to more participatory evaluations. For example, participatory evaluations may involve some capacity building of stakeholders in the setting of indicators, collection of data and analysis, and making of recommendations. Other stakeholders might prefer some brainstorming workshops to discuss challenges, solutions and strategies for the future. Mosaic is experienced in a wide range of evaluations so that your needs can be met.

Results-based Management:
Mosaic is one of the first companies to pioneer results-based management over 20 years ago. We build capacity in results-based management and performance measurement, provide technical assistance and coaching to organizations. Our capacity-building workshops introduce you to four key tools: the logic model, the performance measurement framework, risk register and results-base reporting. Our workshops are participatory, intense and practically focused combining presentations with case studies and practical exercises. We have also developed user-friendly guides and handbooks.

Capacity-building and Human-Resource Development:
Mosaic helps develop the capacity of Northern and Southern partners by focusing on individuals and their organizations. Emphasis may vary from organizational learning to different levels and stages of capacity building: from early childhood education and girls education, to technical and vocational training including programs that help integrate students and workers into the labor market.

Mosaic also organizes international workshops for the development community on Stakeholder Participation; RBM, Appreciative Inquiry & Open Space; Participatory Monitoring & Evaluations as well as Results-Based Management. Mosaic will also custom-tailor workshops to meet your particular institutional needs.

Gender and Social Impact Analysis:
Mosaic promotes the full participation of men and women in the development process. Mosaic recognizes that men and women play different roles, have different needs and face different constraints in development. Mosaic will undertake quantitative and qualitative social assessments, gender scorecards, project design and evaluation using gender disaggregated techniques and methods. Specialized expertise in gender and social assessments are also applied to private sector initiatives.

Organizational Development & Change:
Mosaic will accompany your organization in its strategic planning and change process. Working with senior managers and executives in business, government, or the non-profit sector, we will help you develop structures and decision-making processes that are more participatory, decentralized and empowering to your employees. We will also assist teams to work more effectively and help to design and deliver staff retreats. We will tailor interventions to suit your needs and priorities based on over 20 years experience in participatory methods and approaches..
