Delivering your aims and objectives
Supporting you, in person
Strength and Results
The biggest advantage of support meetings is helping your organisation to realise that you’re not alone – that there are other people who have tackled same challenges. This can often be a revelation and a huge relief to the volunteers, staff or Board members.
Being in a Spartacus support meeting can also help organisations develop new skills and think outsides the box. In addition, the Spartacus team may have experienced the same challenge before, thus widening the practical solutions and may suggest new ways of dealing with a particular challenge.
Coming up with a good idea isn’t a static process; it involves a lot of trial and error. The best way we’ve found to generate ideas is to write, write often and talk it through. Try to figure out how to overcome challenges on your own can often be puzzling. To help, Spartacus draw on multiple associates and an extensive network of third sector volunteers and staff. Each idea is very simple to start, we can conduct a bit of research or seek out a guide on how to progress that dream idea.
Developing your organisation to better serve your clients, service users or the public can often require extra work to meet specific objectives or requirements. This process of transformation is based on complex cultural and environmental factors and their interactions. Having a Spartacus associate alongside you can make all the difference.
Profit or surplus
Profitability is probably the first thing people think about when measuring success. In the Third Sector it’s not that easy. Our aims and objectives, delivering for the client group is the really measure of success. Although without sound finances, even a surplus at the year end, tomorrow client group may not be served.
In addition to firm financial management, a growing service is a sure sign that you are effectively reaching your target market, and reaching your target market is what you are about. Without a vibrant service user base, your success will be limited, at best. The long-term growth and sustainability of your group is tied directly to your ability to not only reach your service user, but to expand it to accommodate your long-term goals. All of those long hours spent on the research and development of a marketing strategy prove themselves here.
Service user satisfaction
Satisfaction is an indication that your group understands the needs of your service user. Understanding them and being able to satisfy their needs is crucial to the strength of your group. Just remember, one unsatisfied “customer” can negate the promotional impact of several satisfied “customers”. Having strong service user polices will add to the success of your group.
