We strive to have each engagement make a lasting and sustainable impact. This means working side-by-side with staff at all levels of an organization, building bridges across divisions and incubating new practices. We understand that there may be many kinds of obstacles to forward progress. In a complex and dynamic environment, with ever-tightening resources, crisis management is all too frequently the norm. In this environment, it can be difficult to articulate a clear future vision and make steady progress. We bring expert assessment and facilitation resources to help organizations agree on a vision that integrates multiple perspectives. Then, we provide management and technical support to monitor progress and keep things on track.
An essential element of the strategic model we leverage in our engagements is to design teams or divisions that are collaborative, responsive, accountable and open in their communication methodologies to achieve a common goal in driving operational improvements and efficiency, compliance and improving business results. Because of these experiences, we provide an unmatched level of responsiveness and professionalism to our clients, as well as intelligent, practical and executable advice on the situations and circumstances that will arise in a business transformation and integration effort of any size and scale.
We focus on the intersection of three key elements that must come together for an organization to achieve lasting performance improvements:
•Critical decision-making responsibilities (clarity of what needs to be accomplished) and methods
•Data and information systems that support decision making and delivery processes
•Business processes for procuring and delivering products and services

Our clients are the leading businesses and government agencies around the world. We have extensive experience working in each of the primary mission areas of government including health, community development, infrastructure building, human services, education, public safety, transportation, environmental protection, and regulatory functions. In building such teams at Microsoft and in a consulting firm, a strategic approach was developed to ensure coordinated staff capabilities as well as a scalable depth of resources. One of the tools used was to create detailed maps of the levels of effort of each staff member to quantify the needed headcount or headcount-conserving instrumentation. An essential element of the strategic model used in both cases is to design teams or divisions rather than to add or move staff individually without regard for the team dynamic
