International Solutions Group (ISG) provides expert technical services that improve the program and organizational performance of humanitarian aid and international development actors. Since 2005, our services have focused on helping the projects and programs of our clients to realize improved impact, relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability. We accomplish this through:
Performance, Monitoring & Evaluation
ISG enhances program performance through a customized, participatory process. ISG’s approach measures program impact, relevance, efficiency, and sustainability – before, during and after-implementation – and highlights lessons to be learned, challenges and successes. This results in recommendations, formulated in partnership with stakeholders, for improving processes, structures and strategies.
Research & Technical Advisory
ISG undertakes large-scale research projects, which inform future programming, policies and strategies. Our technical subject matter experts ensure tools, frameworks and indicators are rooted in international best practices.
Enabling Technologies & Data Science Advisory
ISG leverages technology to ensure the effective and efficient delivery of programs. ISG advises on the development of IT systems and infrastructure that supports programing – from simple, single-user applications to mission-critical enterprise information management systems. ISG’s data science professionals and research experts ensure the tools, frameworks, and indicators we contribute to are rigorous, pertinent, and methodologically sound.
Capacity Building & Organizational Development
ISG delivers a spectrum of capacity building activities – from face to face training to virtual reality simulations – that develop relevant skills and foster leadership and critical thinking. Our experts also assist in developing organizational structures that support sustainable, locally driven outcomes.
We truly believe that it is important to go beyond delivering “good enough” to ensure that we always show up with “wow.” Not only is this the best move for our clients, it is the best way to serve those in need. To achieve this, we ensure that absolute top notch experts are a part of every assignment.
