Background Information: The Busara Center for Behavioral Economics seeks a process consultant / organizational psychologist to assist Busara in the first of an ongoing series of organizational diagnoses, assessments, and implementation of new policies to position Busara towards continued success.

This external consultant is tasked with identifying the strengths that the organization possesses, but more
importantly, the challenges and opportunities for growth.

Since inception in 2012, Busara has grown tremendously – currently the organization employs over 70 fulltime
staff and has operations across East-Africa and beyond.

With Busara’s growth, there have been numerous successes to build upon, but also many challenges that we as an organization must address and overcome so that the next phase of Busara’s future can continue to thrive.

Teams across the organization are seeking well-defined, well-articulated, and streamlined processes both for inter-team and intra-team communication and interaction, as well as general project and internal process implementation.

Through the organization’s period of intensive growth, Busara has created a wealth of processes, documents, policies and protocols, and we seek to streamline and institutionalize these processes to best ensure the future success of the organization.
