Integration of people, processes, systems, and structures to improve delivery of products or services through evaluation, innovation, and education.
AssessmentsWe perform independent program evaluations, organizational reviews, readiness assessments, and needs assessments. Our assessments provide an understanding of root causes, strengths, barriers, and a realistic path forward to meet a specific challenge or to begin planning for a specific initiative.
EvaluationWe use and identify data, key performance indicators, and metrics to monitor, assess, and improve your projects, programs, and agencies. We use real-time data dashboards that you can filter and sort to dig in to a measure in more detail.
Capacity BuildingGovernment is increasingly asked to do more with less. We help agencies deal with staffing shortages and decreasing resources by developing and strengthening the skills, instincts, abilities, processes, and resources you have so you can thrive in complex environments. This could include development of new service models, a reduction in low value activities, or a return to core mission work.
TrainingTraining is an iterative process that begins with a needs assessment and development of learning objectives, leading to content delivery and evaluation of the learning transfer. The cycle starts again with a re-assessment of needs. Whether we assist with one element (such as planning) or with the entire cycle, your training effort will be evidence-based and adult learner-centered. All our training services focus on positively influencing the behavior of your leaders or staff.
CommunicationEffective communication underlies everything you do. We have seen projects and initiatives succeed or fail based on the agency's or program’s communication strategy. We understand how messages flow in public sector organizations, including opportunities and limitations. We develop practical, useful communication plans and help you implement them, whether it be for a short-term project, a system transformation, a program redesign, or a large-scale organizational change.
