Facilitating Change is a consultancy that helps teams and organizations innovate, create, and communicate more effectively.
Our approach is open, networked, and people-centric — with an entrepreneurial, irreverent twist. We draw on design thinking, knowledge management, communication for social change, and a maker ethic, incorporating both cutting-edge and tested technologies.
Facilitating Change was founded and is managed by Christine Prefontaine. We work by tapping our network and assembling lightweight teams to fit each engagement — gathering researchers, strategists, designers, coders, communicators, and others.
We’ve worked with:
- IREX, on the most wonderful Beyond Access: Libraries Powering Development project (<3!!!)
- The Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA), at the University of Washington Information School
- The Global Impact Study — a five-year study researching how public access to technology has changed people’s lives
- Abt Associates — Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector initiative (funded by USAID)
- The International Development Research Centre (IDRC)
- The IRIS Center, a research and advisory center founded by Mancur Olson at the University of Maryland that operated from 1990 until 2011
