As a new employee (week 8 on the job), I’m learning more and more about Transform Consulting Group. I have found that we don’t stop working where other consultants might.
At other consulting groups, the typical client engagement cycle is this: Research is finished. Meeting is over. Report is delivered. On to the next client.
Client: Now what?
Consultant: I wonder what they did with our recommendations.
TCG goes further – we help you implement change.
At Transform Consulting Group we go further in helping our clients implement change. One way we do this is through training our client’s staff.
Just like no funder wants to adopt a grantee forever, no client wants to hire a consultant forever. We want to make sure that the work we have completed for the client will be sustained beyond our engagement with the client.
We work with several clients to support their evaluation needs. This might include evaluating a program for a grant, developing an evaluation plan and process, or developing a data dashboard. Evaluation can be intimidating for many of our client’s staff, so we make sure we develop data tools and plans that they can manage and implement beyond our engagement. In order to accomplish this, we might embed a series of trainings for staff throughout our evaluation project.
We are currently doing this right now for the Center for Leadership Development. We have provided the following training topics mainly around analyzing data:
- Using Excel to analyze program data
- Using SurveyMonkey to analyze data
- Using the National Student Clearinghouse to analyze data
- Implementing a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process with evaluation data
- Using evaluation data with marketing, fundraising and outreach efforts (for development and communications staff)
Our trainings include detailed slides, a recording of our training, and handouts. These are all useful tools that can be shared with new staff at an organization.
We also offer trainings on other topics for which we provide services. Some of our popular trainings include:
Not only does the organization benefit, but according to research, employees want professional development! It makes them feel that the company is investing in them and their development, which can increase employee retention. A win-win!
At Transform Consulting Group, we understand the importance of evaluation and the critical step of implementation. If your organization needs help developing its staff or would like to engage with a consultant that can help you through the entire evaluation process, contact us today to learn more!
