Who are we?

About Makr

There are times when agencies can benefit by stepping back and looking inward. We work so hard on outward-facing projects, we often forget to work on our inner selves. Makr starts by engaging with the organizations principals to better understand where you are now, what makes your organization special, why things are the way they are, what makes it run and what your hopes for changes now and in the future. We work with you to generate understanding of the firm's core values and objectives (and it's perceived versus actual culture). We build strategies that position the organization for growth. We clarify roles, on levels, and seek to show how they can evolve. We then offer agency-wide cultural, core competencies, workflow and best-practice assessments. We focus our time on how to increase efficiencies, improve the culture and how to make the organization more profitable. We pull from a range of project management thinking, from traditional project management, to agile and lean practices as well as the learnings from design thinking. No agency is the same, and the systems we develop are unique to you. We are here to help you develop the teams and culture that will move your firm forward.
