Mind and Hand Associates is a strategy consulting firm that works with organizations in the higher education arena, including colleges, universities, and companies, to help them succeed in the rapidly evolving market for educational services. We also work with a variety of organizations to develop talent through specialized executive education programs.
Our work is focused in two main areas:
Consulting for colleges, universities, and other organizations in the higher education space. Mind and Hand Associates is a boutique consulting firm dedicated to helping those on front lines of higher education succeed in the rapidly evolving education arena. Higher education is a different kind of "business" and Mind and Hand Associates has created a different kind of consulting firm to serve this community. Some of our work is on the strategic level and works toward marshaling the organization’s resources to ensure lasting success; some of our work is of a more tactical nature, aimed at solving a more immediate problem. Our consulting clients include for-profit and not-for-profit universities, public and private institutions, continuing education units, business and other professional schools, associations, testing organizations, publishers, and investment firms.
Executive and professional development programs for organizations seeking to develop talent and alignment with strategic objectives. Mind and Hand Associates creates and delivers executive programs for clients – including colleges and universities and other organizations, from small not-for-profits to Fortune 100 organizations – throughout the world. Our programs focus on a variety of topic areas, including:
All of our services embed a philosophy of mind and hand (understanding and action), which builds on each organization's unique combination of values, capabilities, history, and aspirations to achieve better performance. Sometimes it entails a radical rethinking, and other times it requires only minor fine-tuning, improved alignment, or better execution. Our work can inform decisions, uncover new opportunities, improve discrete outcomes or become the catalyst for organizational transformation.
