Strategic Portfolio Management applied to sustainability
Driving decisions with impact metrics
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has no shortage of opportunities to preserve, conserve and protect. But they don’t have enough money to fund them all.
With actionable opportunities from Coral Reefs to Freshwater Springs and challenges like Climate Change that require new thinking, Temperince Morgan faced difficulty making comparative choices and communicating the impact simply to donors.
Taking a portfolio management approach by developing quantitative summary metrics for impact on nature and indirect benefits to people, she led her mission-driven passionate organization to focus:
- on delivering high-impact tangible projects
- creating space for innovation
- increasing fundraising
