1. TAct - Ten Action Principles
Our Ten Action Principles (TAct) is a practical strategy that enables a transition from Aid dependency to an equal international partnership. The tool empowers efficient and effective cross-cultural collaboration built on trust, transparency and accountability, where inputs, operational responsibilities and benefits are shared equally. The Ten Actions are: needs-driven programme, equal partnership, real-time outcome planning and evaluation, strategic partnership, institutional capacity, sustainable economy, trust, transparency and accountability, resilience, knowledge sharing and visibility.

2. ROPE - Planning & Evaluation
The Real-time Outcome Planning & Evaluation (ROPE) is a management strategy that aims at empowering stakeholders to create road-maps addressing their ambitions and solving their challenges. We compile and address the necessary conditions required to bring about a given impact, including trust, transparency, accountability, cross-cultural understanding, sustainable economy and institutional capacity.
You are welcome to download the ROPE manual, book a workshop, book a seminar, or contact us to discuss a coaching assignment.
We aim to empower transparency and accountability in ethics and governance through our management strategy TRUST. Scientific research shows that corruption and crime are prone in areas where people struggle to survive, and with the HR&S tool TRUST, these challenges are handled professionally and without judgement. Trust is key and concerns all relationships. It is right at the foundation of the success of any business and partnership, and a relationship without trust is not really a relationship at all. Relationships built on trust are also an important competitive advantage for businesses, because trust is so valuable and so rare. 15% of investment capital is invested in accountability measures – 5% (minimum EUR 300) each in auditing, accounting, and survey managing.

4. CROSS - Cross-Cultural Respect
The HR&S Cross-cultural respect management strategy (CROSS) offers awareness, dialogue, empowerment and understanding. Each culture has its own values. It is not always easy to understand another culture’s ways of doing things, why successful cross-cultural partnerships require awareness and professional management of cultural differences. The strategy captures good values from different cultures and aims at empowering that these are strengthened within the collaboration. HR&S states that it is the difference between contexts that creates different cultural habits, rather than differences between people. We also increase cross-cultural awareness through our shop with items produced by our partners in Africa, as well as volunteer assignments and visits to our sites in Africa and Sweden.

5. RISE Centre
Our Research, Innovation and Social Enterprising International Centres (RISE) facilitate the implementation of innovations and scientific findings, and social enterprises start-ups. The Centres are located at our programme sites in Africa and offer shared co-working space, coaching, training, workshops, seminars, networking, expert advice, and financial start-up loans. We offer membership and services to non-members, at fixed rates.
Please contact us to discuss membership or services.
6. TestE - Evidence based impact
HR&S has also developed a management strategy for testing the evidence of social impact, TestE (Testing the strength of Evidence). TestE captures randomization, quantitative statistics and contribution tracing. We target outcome, impact, learning lessons, informed decisions and real-time evaluation planning. Monitoring data are uploaded real-time on our partner website.
