Transformation

We help change agents transform their organizations and neighborhoods into resilient, adaptive environments. Our specialty is innovating through turbulent situations. Our programs deliver not only problem-solving and problem-reframing, but new approaches arising from our action-based learning and search conferencing methods.

One of our transformative approaches creates neighborhood resilience during times of social unrest. The AlterNation vision of great neighborhoods is part of our SafeGrowth® philosophy. Read about it on our SafeGrowth© website

SafeGrowth®

SafeGrowth® is a people-based planning method for creating 21st Century neighborhoods of imagination, livability, and safety. It develops new relationships between city government and residents in order to prevent crime and plan for the future. While technology and evidence-based practice plays a role, SafeGrowth® is based on community building through annual SafeGrowth® plans and neighborhood problem-solving teams networked throughout the city.

CRIME PREVENTION SCIENCE

AlterNation uses new crime prevention and crime analysis methods, sometimes called crime science. These methods help organizations like police, community groups, urban designers, and companies seeking safer places. We use technologies such as GPS fear of crime mapping apps, critical infrastructure protection auditing, statistical modeling of crime risks and displacement to help our clients apply the latest evidence-based methods.

Why Should You Choose Alternation?

Our Philosophy

The 21st Century must be the Century-of-the-Neighborhood. For too long we have relied on others to solve our problems and create visions of our future. Locally-constituted examples of culture, technology, and pro-social living, provide more resilient visions and solutions. We describe this philosophy in Networked Urban Villages: A Manifesto for the 21st Century and in our book SafeGrowth®: Building Neighborhoods of Safety and Livability.

Organizational transformation

Our organizational programs evolved through years of research and experience in professional, government, community and corporate life. We use the concept of organizational ecology as our foundation – the idea that adapting to change in a turbulent environment is the best way to create a healthy and sustainable organization.

SafeGrowth®

Our SafeGrowth® programming drives all our work to create a safer and livable future. The planning methods we incorporate the latest crime prevention techniques – 2nd/3rd Generation CPTED, digital GPS fear mapping, Livability Academies, and SafeGrowth® Neighborhood Planning. Our certified SafeGrowth® consultants bring years of experience to our clients.
