Frequently Asked Questions

We are building a community of practice around organizational design. Here are some initial FAQs, and we'll add more as we grow. In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact us with more questions.

For Leaders
What do you mean by "justice organization?"

We are not neutral. We mean organizations who are on an explicit journey to make their internal practices and external ways of working more expressive of social justice values, including dismantling racism and oppression in all forms. This includes service organizations, advocacy organizations, intermediaries, arts organizations--any group working intently to activate social justice strategies across their bodies of work.

Where can I download the application?

Our software is web-based and can be accessed only via a browser. If you are not currently a JustOrg Design customer and would like to learn more about accessing our product, please send us a note via the Contact Us page.

Does JustOrg Design offer consulting services?

We do. Our consulting services support leaders in orienting to the power of linking strategy, structure, and decision-making. We help with refining organizational strategies so that they serve as compelling sources of alignment and accountability. We guide you in reconfiguring staff to drive those strategies. We also train your staff to use our software. And then, we are here for ongoing support and tune-up's as you progress.

Can we use the JustOrg Design process without the application?

Yes. We believe that the framework of braiding strategy, structure, and decision-making is invaluable to justice organizations regardless of their use of our software. That said, the successful integration of all three of those elements is an everyday endeavor that requires a system for capturing, engaging, and ongoing learning. Our software has been purpose-built for that. We are constantly improving the technology to best support justice organizations.

Is there a free trial period?

No, there isn't. There is an evaluation process that helps us to assess together if JustOrg Design is a good fit for your organization. It begins with our Readiness Reflection. Once you've taken the Readiness Reflection and have the desire to explore further, we would love to hear from you and guide you through next steps.

Is the JustOrg Design software available outside of the United States?

Not yet. Our product is currently available only in the United States. As we work to improve our system processes and integrate feedback into the product, we are keeping our geographic footprint to a minimum. Please stay tuned for geographic expansion news by following us on LinkedIn where we also share valuable insights and tools related to help design Just Organizations.

For Consultants
Does JustOrg Design work with consultants?

We are very interested in working with values-aligned consultants who do strategy, equity, and other forms of organizational change work. We have designed JustOrg Design to help make the work that they do stick by weaving it into organizational structure and decision-making. If you are a consultant who would like to learn more, please send us a note via the Contact Us page.
