Elections, recessions, retirements, technology and other factors leave local governments in a state of constant change. An organization review can determine whether you have the right staff and structure to meet current priorities and goals.

Like an annual physical exam, an organization review checks the vital signs of a department or an entire local government. The results will tell you what’s going well, how to correct problems and where opportunities for improvement are. We also create a plan for implementation, to ensure plans don’t sit on a shelf.

An organization review often pays for itself through increased productivity and cost savings. It also gives managers a new perspective that contributes to continuous improvement. A review is especially helpful for an incoming manager, to quickly understand the conditions and priorities of the new job.

Our assessment approach includes six steps:

  • Listen.
  • Learn.
  • Diagnose.
  • Compare.
  • Recommend.
  • Implement.

Management Partners has performed hundreds of organization reviews for local governments across the country. We can examine your local government and put it on the path to organizational health.
