The Civil Society Sector, as we define it at Z/Yen, spans charities, membership bodies, educational institutions, health trusts and other third sector organisations. Z/Yen is heavily committed to this sector; a significant part of Z/Yen’s business is deployed in the sector. Z/Yen people tend to be highly experienced in and personally committed to our Civil Society work.
Z/Yen has developed a Not-For-Profit Risk Management Framework based on its risk/reward methodology, Z/EALOUS, which is of particular use to Civil Society organisations when undertaking strategic planning exercises, information systems studies or when reviewing the effectiveness of functions. Z/Yen people are skilled at using strategic planning, project management, systems design quality standards and contract management methodologies. In practice, these tools vary from assignment to assignment, but the Z/EALOUS methodology remains consistent in each type of assignment and in each type of organisation; risk and reward can be defined in terms of the objects of the organisation and the objectives of the assignment.
A few highlights of Z/Yen’s recent work include:
Publication of IT for the Not-For-Profit Sector, a practical guide to IT strategies for the Not-For-Profit Sector.
