Opportunities and Constraints
Governments everywhere face pressure to provide more services—from supporting economic growth to supporting the disadvantaged among their citizens—with fewer resources. The clients we work with at every jurisdictional level are no different: they constantly strive to serve their customers more efficiently while adapting to rapidly changing policy and economic climates. Governing has always been complex, but it has never been more so than today.
Coraggio works extensively with our public sector clients to meet these challenges. Whether we are supporting their efforts to assess their organizational and process effectiveness, assisting efforts to manage major change across the state enterprise, or guiding strategy discussions about their future service delivery, we help our government clients arrive at crucial answers to their most vexing challenges.
“Coraggio Group has been invaluable in bringing a myriad of diverse stakeholders together, giving them the chance to be heard, facilitating productive discussions, synthesizing that input into actionable themes for our plan development, and most importantly, helping us to continue a dialogue with those stakeholders.”

State Board for Community and Technical Colleges and former Director of the Office of Financial Management for the State of Washington
“Coraggio kept our leaders appropriately informed throughout the project. This helped us to make timely and thoughtful decisions related to managing the significant amount of organizational change that came with consolidating five state agencies into one.”

Agency Consolidation on Track to Save $31m – $37m

The expected result: nearly $18 million saved during the next biennium.
