JA in the 21st Century - BCG Study
In late 2014 the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) was contacted by JA Canada to discuss the organization's digital strategy vision. After initial discussions of JA's vision, BCG offered to complete a more thorough assessment focusing on the following 3 objectives:
a) Review the overall vision: Is this directionally the right path for Junior Achievement?
b) Provide a set of specific recommendations: What should change, be removed, be added to the strategy?
c) Assess whether the vision is set up for success: Are the right conditions and enablers in place for change?
Junior Achievement has developed a new Economics for Success “Keep Your Balance” interactive tool for students to budget with a social conscience. The tool allows students to understand how the financial and environmental decisions they make can impact their lives. Visit www.jacan.org/efs/kyb
