For the past several months Bedford Research Foundation has been working with Community Consulting Teams (www.cctboston.org) to complete a Strategic Assessment designed to help the foundation strengthen and improve communications surrounding both short and long term research projects. As part of this process, CCT has assisted the BRF in studying the potential future impacts of the work the foundation is doing. On June 9th, BRF and its team of 15 CCT MBA’s will join other organizations CCT has been working with this session to wrap up the BRF project and present findings.
Foundation Director Dr. Ann Kiessling and BRF staff are very grateful for the help and support of this wonderful organization. Below is an excerpt from CCT’s most recent newsletter:
Cutting-Edge Research to Cure Disease (BRF)
CCT is using the varied skills and backgrounds of its consultants to provide a situational assessment of the Bedford Research Foundation (BRF) to inform its strategic plan and future growth. The team is focused on understanding BRF’s mission, history, and current operations by speaking with stakeholders including staff, board members, and funders. In addition, the team is analyzing BRF financials, identifying analogous organizations to determine successful models for growth, and researching potential funding sources.
