Data & Analytics – TerconPartners 

TerconPartners delivers quantifiable improvements in team, leader and organizational performance around the globe. In the past thirty years, it has helped organizations and corporate leaders build sustainable organizational capability, drive down costs, minimize risk and deliver required business results.

We helped TerconPartners with its cross-team alignment survey and data analytics.

  • Created a survey to support TerconPartners’ cross-team alignment effort for its customers on evaluating how effectively two or more teams are working together to achieve desired business results.
  • Analyzed historical survey data of more than ten years, identified trends and patterns, created data visualization, and presented the analysis.

At the completion of this project, TerconPartners was able to see trends of organization performance areas over the years, recognize strong and weak areas, and identify correlations between performance areas. This helps TerconPartners make recommendations to its clients.

Enterprise Technology – U.S. Department of Agriculture

USDA OCIO Client Experience Center (CEC) provides enterprise technology solutions and services to USDA agencies that support mission areas such as Food Safety, Rural Development, and Farm Production and Conservation.

  • To support USDA’s initiative of being a data-driven agency, we assessed and analyzed the existing data and reporting architecture, gathered requirements from branch chiefs and division directors, recommended the course of action, set up the business intelligence/analytics environment, and created dashboards and reports for the CEC senior leadership team.

At the completion of this project, users could access reports and dashboards in one central location, analyze the data, easily find answers by typing in a question powered by the BI tool’s natural query language engine, share reports and dashboards among peers, and access data from various sources. This resulted in improved productivity, increased efficiency, and better decision making to support the agency mission.

  • To support the program management branch’s project management oversight, we created a weekly project status report of all investment and major projects.

This report solution enabled the senior leadership team to view critical project status at any time and from anywhere. It saved project managers tremendous time by automating the report creation.

Project Management – River Hill High School PTSA

River Hill High School PTSA is an all volunteer non-profit organization providing services and support to parents, teachers, and students at River Hill High School.

We created a strategy, managed projects, and successfully delivered technology solutions.

  • Assessed technology needs and created a strategy for member engagement, communication improvement, organizational efficiency, and marketing.
  • Created an easy-to-use website for volunteers to update website content, and for parents to subscribe to monthly newsletters, view news & events, and make online purchases and membership payments.
  • Implemented Google for Nonprofits so volunteers have PTSA email accounts and can share documents using Google Drive.
  • Set up MailChimp, Twitter, and Facebook for user engagement.

These solutions significantly saved volunteers’ time, enabled outreach to more parents, teachers, and students, and created a positive image of the PTSA.
