Case Study

The challenge: For a year, Mercy Corps researchers spent hours amassing data regarding the Horn of Africa livestock market. They planned for this work to inform a strategy supporting that industry in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and other countries. This gold-mine-of-data-turned-strategic-vision was to be shared with donors—in the next week! But the writers were stumped by “analysis paralysis” and a limited budget. 

The solution: After seeing Dragonfly’s work on a previous project, the Mercy Corps communications team contacted us. We were happy to assist them quickly and efficiently. Working within their budget—and across time zones—we assigned a substantive editor to review three chapters, which could then serve as guides for the remaining chapters.

The result: The editor refined the story Mercy Corps needed to relay to donors, culling unnecessary information, pulling out key findings, and making suggestions for graphics. The communications team was able to follow suit with the other chapters and make their deadline.
