We are not a law firm. Our services focus around strategic themes, developing solutions for challenging perspectives.
We help our clients in asking the right questions so they know that their solutions are real and will tick all relevant boxes in order for their projects, programmes or portfolios to achieve the desired results. We help them identifying all relevant stakeholders in order to jointly develop the project's objectives. With a view to the Mantra - creating joint objectives for all relevant stakeholders - we jointly develop a scope not only best for each of themselves, but best for the project as such.
WHAT WE DO
We help our clients to ask the right questions, before designing the solutions and to be innovative in designing processes which assist them sustaining the Mantra. We are especially strong in projects in the Impact environment, projects which help achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals; with a specific aim at Sustainable Development Goal #17: Creating Partnerships for the Goals. We believe this can be done with no disputes and with a keen eye at achieving success.The UN Sustainable Development Goals ("SDGs"), to be achieved by 2030, require an investment of USD 80-100 trillion. It is to be expected that the vast majority of the required financing will be in the form of "Impact Investment": investments by private investors (and institutionals) with a view of achieving a certain impact in the relevant SDG, while at the same time generating some form of return on this investment will be generated. Eventually, most investments wll be built upon real and sustainable business cases. This will require various forms of innovation, predominantly aimed at processes which resolve the inefficiencies and imperfections of certain solutions which are otherwise taken for granted: combining mobile technology with health care, investing in well built factories with perfect labour conditions, providing clean water and sanitation, providing safe housing, taking power off-grid. Using existing resources to generate others. The Faithful Goose helps you take the right decision in choosing your project and developing such projects into bankable business cases, as well as developing creative funding options, with all stakeholders involved.
Isn't it in everyone's interest that projects should be completed (1) within time, (2) within everyone's budget (with a fair reward for all involved), (3) according to its requirements, (4) safe and to the satisfaction of all relevant stakeholders and (5) without disputes? This Mantra, seems not always clear to parties setting up their projects.
The Faithful Goose's expertise is in making its clients aware of the Mantra, and what is involved in making it work well, for everyone involved: for their Project!
We are licenceholder to the game 4Scene. This game assists the parties involved in developing the right strategy in developing their projects. This clip demonstrates what it is all about: https://youtu.be/gA-ef6i3gmg?list=FLGZebhWepzSLu7Dtm4ecPUw.
4Scene is a useful step in designing the right processes and collaborating interfaces in doing your project right.
4Scene has been used in many live projects, such as protecting Port Said (Egypt) against the effects of Sea Level Rise and subsidence and protecting the Yucatan (Mexico) coast against the effects of erosion of coral reefs and of the massive washing ashore of seaweed (saragazo).
A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON RISK: 4SCENE
Sustainable Development Goal #17 is all about sustainable partnerships for achieving these SDG's. Therefore it is need to analyse the interests of all relevant stakeholders to a project to identify joint and aligned project objectives. The further strategy should be based on achieving those joint objectives. We are strong believers that all issues which may arise along the way can be prevented or resolved in a way which is best for project. We furthermore believe that disputes are not necessary. If they arise, they should be resolved. Quick and clean, not dirty. The Faithful Goose is there to assist its clients in doing so, by timely identifying issues, make them transparent, escalate them to the right level and let not have such issues spoil the beauty of the initial project. Our services include designing the right delivery and partnership models, conducting multistakeholder workshops at the start and right throughout the project lifetime. We help forging the right partnerships, with the right sort of incentives. We also assist in overcoming hurdles on the way, by turning these into challenges which - if overcome - pave the road to success.
