Situation Assessment

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”

– Frequently misattributed to Alice in Wonderland but a paraphrase from Chapter 6

 

When faced with a complex issue with many parties the starting questions are usually: What should we do? where do we go from here? What are our options? Are the chances of success worth the time and effort?

Whether it is a workplace or organization conflict or a multi-party public policy matter with numerous stakeholders, The Logue Group can help you assess the situation, determine what approach may be feasible and map out an action plan and design an interest based process to address the situation.

We conduct confidential interviews and on-line surveys to:

  • Gather information and identify
    • The causes of the conflict and/or goals for a process
    • The interests and concerns of the stakeholders
  • Frame the issues for discussion and who might participate
  • Identify appropriate interventions and design a process
  • Assess the level of interest in participating in the process and recommend whether the time, effort and expense is worth initiating a process

We have experience in conducting assessments and designing processes for:

  • Workplace and organizational conflict in the public and private sector
  • Natural resources
  • Hazardous and nuclear waste
  • Transportation and transit oriented development
  • Human services
