Consulting Services offers a wide range of assessment and performance improvement strategies for departmental staff operations at Penn State. As an internal consulting group, we specialize in providing an independent, objective analysis of your unit’s work processes, staff utilization, and organizational structure which you can blend into your overall improvement efforts.  

Each project is tailored to meet your unit’s specific objectives and timeline. We strive to be low-impact on your daily operations in order to minimize disruptions and allow you to focus on positive change. During the assessment process we seek to engage, to the maximum extent possible, work unit staff, stakeholders, and customers. This key aspect of our assessment process allows you to get a true 360 degree perspective on the challenges, expectations, and best practices of your organization.

Since the 1960's, formerly as Management Engineering and now as Consulting Services, we have specialized in providing time-proven analytical services to academic and administrative units of the University. Let us partner with you to help build a foundation for your organization that will allow your staff to not only meet the challenges of today, but also into the future.
