Technical Assistance

B3C provides targeted technical support to build the capacity of an agency or project whose goal is to create effective change. Our framework captures the strengths of the organization and expands it to improve predictable outcomes. 

Dr. Ortega provides one-on-one consultation, coaching, small group facilitation, training, webinars, learning collaboratives, best practices, resources and tools for Federal and State agencies and their grantees, and others working in partnership with our public and private sector clients.

Dr. Ortega begins with a comprehensive needs assessment and/or focus group to identify strengths, challenges, and desired outcomes. With our staff and implementation team, she guides participants through a series of exercises and discussions. She helps develop strategies and implementation.

She re-evaluates strategies after implementation to verify if the technical assistance has achieved the right outcomes. Dr. Ortega works one on one and in teams for facilitating discussions and coaching sessions to tailor approaches for optimal outcomes and success.
