Welcome to Pupil of Ishmael

Dear Nonprofits:

My name is Ibrahim Skandarani, and I am a management consultant who is offering to share my 27 years of knowledge and experience to help you with your organizational development needs. I invite you to explore how my volunteering based support could become a valuable resource for you to bring your nonprofits to the level of excellence.

PS: You will be amazed by the level of transformation in your organization if you settle for nothing but excellence.  

My Approach

The traditional approach followed by many consulting firms is based on  “Ask the Expert”, in which client organizations ask consulting firms to perform certain services for a fee.  In return, the consulting firms perform the services using their own people and technology with very little knowledge transferred to the client.  In my work, I don’t follow this approach.


My approach is built on the “Team Learning” discipline  of Learning Organization, where I work hand in hand with the client as one team.  This approach would include people from the client side who have been traditionally excluded from important team learning processes while the consulting projects are being implemented.  My role in these consulting projects is to facilitate the processes by which the projects are carried out.  This is done in full partnership with the client.  Of course, I would be bringing with me my rich consulting knowledge and experience as well as my team facilitation skills to guide the client team throughout the project life cycle.
