Has your organization “hit the wall” trying to get a major project planned and implemented?
Are you attempting to get everyone on the same page regarding a new interoperable communications system or upgrading existing equipment and services?
Our experience shows that major projects are often difficult because the key stakeholders are too emotionally and territorially vested. We can SAVE you TIME, MONEY and MISTAKES!
BLUELINE Security Consulting Group, LLC (Formally BOWMAC) provides a variety of consulting and facilitating services dealing with project planning, problem solving, small group facilitation, emergency services and communications strategic planning. With over 35 years of experience working with groups and organizations to solve problems, plan major projects, and strategically focus action on complex issues, we are well positioned to assist your group.
Whether you need a group facilitated around an issue or you want your people trained to facilitate, BLUELINE consultants can provide the professional expertise you need.
- Using a seven-step Project Planning agenda, small groups are able to define their project, select appropriate strategic options or approaches, conduct a force-field analysis, and generate activities to accomplish the project. The group will organize the tasks into a timeline and commit to working as a team to successfully complete the project. In addition, a “test for reality” will assess and identify any barriers to the project and devise contingencies.
- The Problem Solving agenda uses a similar approach with brainstorming the issues and problems, identifying likely solutions, prioritizing those likely solutions, and developing a game plan for addressing each solution. The group develops indicators for determining success and adequate problem resolution. Problem solving and project planning are closely related and utilize similar skills and methods.
Organizations frequently deal with small group or work teams that need to increase their ability to perform and deliver high quality products and/or services. BLUELINE has experience in facilitating and training hundreds, if not thousands, of small groups with the goal of making them more effective. Using a small group process, a set of agreed upon ground rules, brainstorming and skills mentioned above, we have achieved excellent results.
The combined members of the BLUELINE team have hundreds of years of public safety experience in almost every service and at most organizational levels. Our approach to Strategic Planning in communications, fire and rescue services, law enforcement, and security utilize many of the skills and processes described above. Combining the facilitation skills with the many years of practical public safety experience gives us a unique perspective on many public safety issues.
