Dollar for dollar, TMC is as good of an investment as one can make in their organization.”

“The Management Center is awesome! Working with them brought a new level of rigor and deliberateness to the management of the New Organizing Institute’s staff and programs, and we got better results because of it. With their help, we put in place systems and practices that I know will allow the organization to keep achieving exceptional results year after year.”

Judith Freeman, Co-founder, New Organizing Institute
