Individual organizations’ performance directly affects the overall development of countries in transition. However, most public as well as private institutions have not yet reached the required stage of institutional and organizational development.
PMCG works with organizations from both the public and private sectors to help them build their capacities to change and achieve greater productivity by developing, improving, and reinforcing strategies, structures, and processes. We transform inefficient bureaucracies into modern, capable, and transparent structures to efficiently enforce legislation and improve service delivery.
Perceiving organizations as adaptive systems, we use systematic approaches to help them identify and analyze existing performance gaps. In so doing, we conduct analysis at organizational and process performance levels to address identified gaps and to guide the implementation of performance solutions packages.
Assessment is a significant component of our services, laying the foundation for an organization’s enhanced effectiveness. Thus, we provide Institutional Assessment, reviewing the institutional mission, goals, and outcomes as well as Performance Assessment and Management, identifying the organization’s objectives, the necessary objectives to achieve and the relevant methods and drivers therein.
Meanwhile, Organization Design is a core service to shape the way your organization operates, to help them to pursue strategies and meet their goals, while using Strategic Planning is also undertaken to define their strategies or directions, and to advise on allocating resources to attain sought goals. Moreover, PMCG provides Business Plan Development and Business Process Modeling and Optimization services to help private companies to achieve their objectives and to advance their process workflows and procedures to ensure smooth progress. Moreover, our Quality & Regulatory Consulting services help organizations to achieve their compliance targets.
Conducting Change Management, we reform and reconfigure organizations’ processes and procedures, supporting them to transition teams and whole organizations to the desired level. We cooperate devotedly with our partners to ensure that change is owned by leadership and actively led at the highest level, while also supporting technical staff.
