Oxford recognizes that adherence to overall agency goals, as well as the alignment of business functions on a strategic level, is important. In order to do this, it is oftentimes beneficial for federal agencies to look for an outside source to assist with an unbiased approach in providing:
- An objective look at business processes, functions, and groups and in turn classifying their importance and providing any recommendations for change
- Solutions/services that are best equipped to help an organization accomplish its multiple mission areas without sacrificing its overall strategy
- A path for transition and optimization of business processes and functions
Consulting as a practice is a broad field, and can be applied to various sectors, methodologies, and areas of expertise. Management consulting assesses existing organizational challenges, needs, and areas of improvement. After assessment, strategic recommendations and a plan for improvement is proposed and implemented. Through this entire process, good consultants will take note of lessons learned, organizational challenges, and any inherent barriers to change. They can then tailor a dynamic and adaptable approach to solving existing organizational problems and preventing future ones.
Oxford consultants utilize standardized proven procedural based approaches, are creative in our recommendations, and are extremely capable in our service delivery.

Alignment of technology and business mission goals has become an integral part of every organization’s ability to plan and operate effectively. However, this overall process, known as IT Strategic Planning, can be challenging for any organization.
Commitment by management, the organizational climate, and resistance to change can all be inherent barriers in the strategic planning process. Furthermore, IT Strategic Planning is an organization-wide effort with inputs being pulled from different internal and external stakeholders.
Oxford assists cabinet level agencies in guiding them past barriers and challenges that may be present, implementing a sound IT Strategic Planning process through organizational collaboration, by establishing a culture of performance excellence, and via effective change management. Through previous and current efforts with our clients, Oxford has established an IT Strategic Planning Line of Sight, pictured.
