Collaboration and Change Management
Working with the Center for Organizational Effectiveness and Monster Government Solutions, Concordia Consulting partnered to update the classification process and system at the US Veterans Administration. This project involved analyzing and prioritizing complex data and determining the most appropriate classification of jobs based on case law. This multi-organization, multi-division project, involved interacting with end-users, training end-users and resolving problems quickly.
Concordia Consulting led a major business improvement project resulting in annual savings in excess of 2M. The project allowed a subject matter expert who was deemed ineffective by his peers a method to regain his reputation and share his expertise. At this same company, Concordia Consulting consulted with the CEO to develop a company-wide survey assessing the culture, management, administrative systems, work processes, compensation, benefits, internal communications, decision processes and morale.
Concordia Consulting investigated a corporate executive misusing authority. Documenting highly sensitive evidence and meeting with the COO, the director of human resources and legal counsel on a regular basis we developed an exit plan for the executive. The investigation and process was deemed successful as the executive sought employment elsewhere with only minor impact to the operation and delivery of the product.
Curriculum and Program Design
Through Concordia Consulting’s work with the Department of Interior, a series of courses for SES executives and other leaders within the agency were developed and delivered. One component of this program which involves giving feedback at all levels has become a cornerstone of most Concordia programs.
