Facilitate sustainable economic growth and build stronger communities 

We understand the major challenges and trends faced by our clients in the government sector. You must achieve economies of scale, centralizing and consolidating services and operations. We know you have a lot of data at your fingertips, but more importantly, you need to know how to effectively analyze and use that data. In order to keep up with the pace of technological change, you know it is critical to transform from legacy mainframe systems and custom-developed applications to cloud-based packaged software systems, as this is where departments will spend money and allocate their IT resources. You need to grasp this Government as a Platform concept, increasing the speed of business with the redesign of procurement, enterprise reporting and web portals as government supports the Internet of everything. Change Management and communication is pivotal because of the way the workforce is structured, requiring training, leadership and communication services to help manage the journey. All of these are wrapped around the strategic IT vision and roadmap.

We know how to get you to where you want to go. Our employees possess deep skills, diverse work experiences, and a “think outside of the box” solution mentality. These qualifications, combined with our ability to quickly adapt to the ever-changing demands and requirements of the government sector, allow us to quickly and efficiently address your needs, both today and in the future.

Organizational Change Management

Ensuring employees and other stakeholders are included in the change and bought into the solution is a critical factor to the success of any project, and critical to realizing an organization's return on investment. Our consultants are certified in methodologies, such as Prosci, and utilize those tools and techniques to address the "people" aspect of change.

"Navigator Management Partners was contracted to help us to define the strategy around business intelligence, financials and human resources and also to implement those pieces. Strong flavor of change management activities in both of these projects that I’m mentioning were a key component to the critical success of each of those projects."
