Berkshire Advisors works with government managers to develop the management systems and processes needed to institutionalize effective management practices

Management systems and processes play three important roles in an organization’s efforts to institutionalize effective management practices. First, management systems and processes can facilitate implementation by removing barriers to change that would otherwise hinder implementation. Second, management systems can ensure that the information needed to support sound decision making is readily available. Finally, management systems and processes can impose a discipline on operations that support the implementation of effective practices.
