“Most of the nonprofits ESC helps struggle with multiple issues such as sustainability, resource and financial constraints, governance, leadership, communications, operations, technology, and finally, and perhaps most importantly, strategic vision and planning. What gives me the most gratification is working with clients to develop a strategic plan and help them create a roadmap for implementing the plan, without which they are lost in daily tactical decisions and actions,” says Jaidev of his work with ESC clients.
