At the core of Humentum’s Theory of Change and embedded in what we do is our belief that change begins from within. That’s why we focus on strengthening operating models – what some would think of as “the back office” – to deliver your mission. Infrastructure = impact.
Humentum focuses on four core components of the operating model through the lens of equity, resilience, and accountability. In our consultancy practice, our methodology integrates people and process for lasting results that work in practice, not just on paper.
- Institutional architecture — the system or structure, including governance, business model, and leadership.
- Funding and financial systems — how the work is funded, including administrative cost coverage, fundraising, and unrestricted reserves.
- People and culture — who does the work and how, including compensation and benefits, recruitment and retention, and professional development.
- Risk and compliance — accountability for the work being done, including risk tolerance and mitigation, assumption and assignment of risk, and accountability structures and risk management.
