Change is an inevitability in any organization. Even more so when a new administration can herald significant moves in budget, purview, or strategy. When the next shift in priorities could be right around the corner, it’s important to get change right straight out of the gate so you can maximize the impact your business activities have on your mission. LeapPoint’s change management experts have spent years working with clients on process, organization, and technology transformations. The experiences have been boiled down to create a proven methodology that focuses on leveraging what drives change and mitigating what impedes it.
Resources are at the heart of any organization. And you get out of your resources what you put in. But it’s not enough to just get the right person in the right role. Your staff and your organization need to be designed for success. From a well-thought-out organizational structure with effective spans of control; to people development and growth strategies that help staff feel both valued and actualized; to intelligent planning tools that maintain sustainable workload balance across teams. Each of these elements play a critical role in optimizing your workforce and with decades of combined experience in federal human capital planning, LeapPoint knows just how to make each one work for your agency, all while managing the challenges of the federal budget and procurement cycles.
With the pace at which technology continues to move it can be hard to plan for and define an enterprise architecture that appropriately leverages emerging technology. Coupled with the home-grown legacy systems so common in the federal government, finding any meaningful way to strike an effective balance between designing a forward-looking architecture and running an efficient service management operation can be incredibly difficult. LeapPoint brings not only deep functional expertise in federal enterprise architecture, but also years of commercial experience—and the best practices that come with them—that will help you build the IT infrastructure of tomorrow while still supporting and transitioning the systems of today.
IT would be hard enough if all you had to do was manage the budget process and maintain legacy systems. But that’s only a small part of what falls under the burgeoning purview of IT.

Being asked to keep the lights on is a very different charge from being asked to reinvent the lightbulb. And yet that’s the world you live in every day.
