ACCION San Diego (San Diego, CA)
ACCION San Diego was at an important juncture. With new opportunities for expansion regionally, it was facing key decisions. Should it grow the number of partners in its network, the number of entrepreneurs it served, the size of the loans it provided, or the geographic boundaries of its service area?
As a think-partner to its leadership team and a facilitator of its strategic planning process, VanicaCummings worked with ACCION in exploring expansion opportunities, examining the impact on capacity, performance, and resources, and laying out a strategic path for moving forward in a way that balanced its need to be opportunity-driven and market-driven with its need to be systematic and stable.
