From our customers:

Dr. Pasquale is a motivator, intelligent, highly ethical, educator and goes the extra mile to get the job done – a great combination to add to your team. Dr. Pasquale has brought inspiration to our organization. She has a keen mind and will add value to your company.

– Grant-seeker

Laura was a principal collaborator on a quick-turn research project that probed deep and wide into the future possibilities of so-called Living Labs. Under extreme schedule pressure she took a massive amount of research material and my perhaps unreasonably expansive views and turned all of it into a position paper that hangs together well. It was a challenging job really well done. She is a truly consummate pro.

– Client with project in European Union

I had the opportunity to work with Laura on a research project for a client residing in a third location from the two of us. She has an ability to understand very complex topics readily and provide the client with exactly what s/he requested. As we collaborated on conference calls with the client I was able to experience first hand her innate project management “gene” and her ability to guide the conversations so there was a mutual understanding of our deliverables and timelines. Even with last minute changes by the client, we were able to deliver our research paper on time and within budget. I would recommend Laura as a competent, well-versed researcher, writer, and consultant.

– Team member on consulting contract

I have hired Dr. Pasquale on several occasions and each and every time she exceeded my expectations. I definitely recommend Dr. Pasquale and plan on working with her for many years to come.

Visioning, Planning, and Research

When the business routine is no longer enough to move the organization toward its goals, support is available to proactively increase effectiveness and efficiency. For more comprehensive organizational change, unique combinations of the following services may also be developed.

Data Collection: Understanding an organization and its current culture is necessary for effective development. A comprehensive assessment may be designed for your organization, using such varied approaches as documentation review, focus groups, interviews, onsite visits, and surveys, helping the client to pinpoint areas of strength as well as areas for improvement. The resulting report may also be formally presented to stakeholders for further discussion and reflection.

Meeting Facilitation: Meetings are an important and frequent activity in most organizations. However, executives and managers seldom have as much time as they would like to organize them. In addition, it’s difficult to fully participate while simultaneously overseeing such events. We offer varied applications of facilitation services, including:

• Strategic planning
• Collaboration and team building
• Conference facilitation and planning
• Process improvement
• Focus groups

Simple, effective techniques can transform meetings into opportunities for effective collaboration.

Organizational Assessment: Understanding an organization and its current culture is necessary for effective development. A comprehensive assessment may be designed for your organization, using such varied approaches as documentation review, focus groups, interviews, onsite visits, and surveys, helping the client to pinpoint areas of strength as well as areas for improvement. The resulting report may also be formally presented to stakeholders for further discussion and reflection.

Program Development: Not-for-profit organizations and public organizations in particular can benefit from this service. Clients may choose to begin with a targeted needs assessment. If a needs assessment is already available, the identified consumer needs and service gaps can be addressed through a systematic process of applying current knowledge and best practice. The desired programs can then be created through a combination of facilitation, planning and proposal writing. Program development can be a first step toward community development.

Program Evaluation: Whether for an audience of consumers, funding entities, government or other stakeholders, data on the impact of activities to enhance education, wellness or general well-being is valuable for program continuation and enhancement. Evaluations can be scaled depending on the program budget, objectives, and scope. Evaluations may incorporate existing or new data, collected through approaches including focus groups, interviews and surveys as well as statistical analysis of quantitative information.

Project Planning and Management: We can assist you in oversight of your project, thereby helping the organization to meet its unique goals and objectives within existing constraints, and enhancing the ultimate return-on-investment of activities. From scheduling and staffing to evaluation of project deliverables, we will support your work from inception to completion.

Report Writing: A non-profit organization needs to submit an effective proposal to stay competitive. The corporate executive or NGO leader needs to clarify a position on market forces or public policy. An academic must “publish or perish”. These are familiar scenarios; yet, organizations do not always have the the in-house expertise or the time necessary to complete this work. We can provide rapid turnaround for tight deadlines, leaving our clients free to focus more on the content than on the mechanics of writing.

World Cafe: As a collaborative visioning approach, the World Cafe can be organized to gather incorporate feedback from large or small, inclusive groups of stakeholders.  Input can then be rapidly implemented, or can be folded into a broader assessment or evaluation.
