About Us

Our Vision

Creating thriving communities for all people through smarter collective decision-making

Our Mission

To accelerate and deepen social impact through strategy, evaluation, and capacity-building


Since its establishment in 1988, OMG has provided innovative, high impact solutions by blending new business and practice insights with the context of on-the-ground realities. 

Prior to 1988, many OMG staff members were based at the University of Pennsylvania. OMG's predecessor, the Organization and Management Group, was a part of the Fels Center of Government from 1986-88, and before that functioned as a subgroup within the Wharton School's Management and Behavioral Science Center (1980-85). Today OMG's professional staff brings together a diverse variety of backgrounds within an integrated professional practice.


We believe in:

  • Working with clients and key stakeholders as partners
  • Fostering creativity and innovative solutions
  • Working with an equity and cultural responsive lens
  • Driving an analytically-driven, results-oriented focus
  • Valuing dissenting points of view and creating a safe haven for idea exchange
  • Promoting learning, collaboration, and shared responsibility
  • Advancing thought leadership
  • Catalyzing sustainable social change
