Public service / state ministry

Conception and implementation of leadership feedbacks.

This was our approach:

We developed and coordinated the process as well as the feedback questionnaire in collaboration with the HR department. The participants were thoroughly informed about the goals and the individual steps of the procedure. An online tool corresponding to the laws and guidelines of data protection was used to implement the anonymous survey. The results were discussed in facilitated workshops with feedback receivers and feedback givers. Concrete improvement measures were arranged if necessary.

Result
The executives acquired insights concerning their self-image compared to their public image and could reflect on their leadership behavior. The end result was an entire evaluation for the state ministry with indications for the development of executives and the whole organization    

Public service / ministry of education on state level

Consulting of the project group „school structure reform” and supporting the introduction of a new school form

This was our approach:

We advised the project group concerning methodical questions of project planning, project controlling and organization. Furthermore we ran a series of big events with school inspectors, principals and other stakeholders. In the beginning we conveyed basic information, which were followed by implementation models in the next step.

Result
The thorough preparation and activating event moderation has significantly contributed to the successful and timely introduction of the new school form    

Public service / state ministry

Stronger orientation of one department towards strategic and conceptual tasks

This was our approach:

In the beginning we made a careful strategic analysis of the most important action fields using the SWOT method in workshops. In this way it became clear which tasks should gain more priority in the future. Since no additional resources could be mobilized it was necessary to shift capacities to the priority tasks. Change management and coaching methods were used to flank this internal change process. During the whole process the superordinate management level, the participation partners and the department managers were closely involved. Moreover, it was considered crucial to carefully and regularly inform all employees.

Result
Preconditions for a stronger orientation towards strategic and conceptual tasks were created. The department’s ability to fulfill its core tasks has improved significantly. 

Public service / administration

Advice and support with analyzing the equipment of organizational units of different districts as well as the definition of performance standards.

This was our approach:

In the first step we supported the client in project definition, organization and planning and developed a project charter in collaboration with all stakeholders. Our role was project support and facilitation, as well as developing all data collection and evaluation formats. The organizational units of different city districts defined their actual and target equipment depending on the tasks in facilitated district and department specific workshops. We compiled a summary, which was evaluated by the departments. Afterwards recommendations for politics were developed and agreed upon.

Result
A consolidated analysis of the actual and the target state of equipment in all districts plus coordinated recommendations for politics on how to improve the current situation. One side effect was an increased willingness for collaboration between the districts.
