OPERATIONAL CONSULTING

OPERATIONS
  • Are you prepared for events, initiatives, performances?

Operational Planning
  • Do you have a well-thought-out timeline/work plan for each?

  • Is each one properly budgeted, staffed, tracked?
  • Do you regularly evaluate your progress and results?

We will help you create thorough operations plans with clear timelines, work assignments, budgeting and tracking, and evaluation of results.

CONTRACTS AND UNION AGREEMENTS
Contracts
  • Are your existing contracts fair, clear and consistent? Are you often challenged by contract issues?

  • Do you have a climate of trust and mutual respect with your union members? Do you understand their hopes and desires?

  • Do you have a strategy for your negotiations, including bottom lines and BATNAs (Best Alternative To a Negotiated Agreement)?

We will review your existing contracts and  recommend practical methods for implementation. We'll help you prepare for contract negotiations, creating a detailed negotiation strategy. We will, upon request, act as lead negotiator or advisor during union negotiations.
PUBLICATIONS
Publications
  • Are your publications high quality (language and layout)?

  • Are they produced on time and within budget?

  • Does everyone involved understand their part in producing them, respecting deadlines?

We will examine your publications and production process, make recommendations to improve quality, and help you design a workable system that creates and tracks expenditures, enabling those involved to work within clear and achievable timelines.
