dala! Consulting Services is an organisation with a purpose: to contribute towards improving the practice, sustainability and impact of non-profit organisations.
Recognising that each organisational contexts is unique, we work with clients to develop customised processes, systems and plans to address strategic and operational challenges.
Our practice is founded in systems thinking and adaptive management, and acknowledges that successful organisational development processes are rarely linear. As a result, the dala! approach to organisational development depends on ensuring a balance between technical solutions, participatory processes and regular reflection to ensure the support dala! delivers is suited to the organisation’s needs at any particular time.
Director, Allan Moolman, has over 15 years experience leading significant international, community and social development programmes in Southern and East Africa, with a focus on facilitating and supporting community-led social change. A results-oriented programme designer and manager, he has highly developed leadership, strategic and operational skills across all organisational functional areas. Operating from a strong values base, he is an innovative and entrepreneurial project manager, delivering results in a wide range of organisational settings.
Allan has extensive human resource, organisational development and change management experience, coupled with high level strategic planning, management and communications expertise. He has significant fundraising, external relations and donor management experience, including monitoring, evaluation and learning at design and implementation levels. His reputation is that of an independent, proactive systems thinker who works with integrity to produce the highest quality outcomes possible.
In addition, dala! works with a network of associates who bring a wide range of skills to each project. Teams are drawn together to meet the specific needs of the clients through dala!’s partnerships with Communicating Simply, Wordslice and Lumo, among others..
