Service Delivery: OPTIMIZED

Service Management

Understanding exactly what services an organization provides drives all other actions related to people, process, and tools. We focus on helping organizations define their services, their service catalog, and the processes required to deliver those services to the satisfaction of the organization and the user of those services.

Process Definition and Re-engineering

Processes and procedures make any organization function. The state of maturity of those processes varies greatly from organization to organization and from process to process. Hartwood’s works with organizations to determine the state of process development and to identify incremental modifications where appropriate as well as large scale re-engineering efforts as required in support of innovation and transformational activities.

At the heart of all organizations is the need for ensuring that across the organization the appropriate skills and knowledge is developed to allow the appropriate resource to support the organization in the most effective manner.

We support training for individual projects and groups with training materials, post training support guides, and training sustainment plans as the tools and processes continue to evolve.

Technical Writing

Taking the complex and making it simple is the core definition of Technical Writing yet at Hartwood we believe in just enough documentation at the time it is needed to allow our customers to deliver their services with the upmost professionalism and efficiency. In the rapidly changing technical and organizational realms, the method by which supporting documentation is generated, utilized and maintained is also changing. Hartwood incorporates technology as common as MS Word to more advanced integrated digital media management platforms to get the appropriate documentation at the appropriate level of detail to those who need it.

Service Center Support

Providing personnel to answer the phone and reply to emails is a commodity.

Records Management

Every organization generates records that need to be managed in compliance with organizational policy for the protection of the organization, and in many cases, in compliance with federal regulations and laws. We help organizations define policy for the identification, collection, management, and disposition of records. For government organizations, we assist with email record management, artifact identification from organizational processes, and provide support with the collection of records across the organization into a compliant records management system. We have working relationships with many data analytic tool providers to assist with the proper identification of mass quantities of artifacts in support of the records disposition management.

Knowledge Management

With an ever-increasing flood of information, data, and digital content combined with a more transitory workforce, government organizations are struggling to deal with their organizational knowledge. Hartwood works with organizations holistically to determine what information is generated from their service delivery, what information is needed for their supporting processes, and how that information needs to flow within the organizations. Moving forward to working within the organization to modify the thinking about, the utilization of, and the identification of knowledge by creating a KM framework that integrates into the day to day operations of the organization. From these activities, we can identify supporting technologies, training requirements, and potential areas where existing knowledge can be leveraged to generate new knowledge for the customer.

Organizational Change Management

Organizations that are not moving forward are falling behind. This is true for government organizations, especially in this era of rapidly advancing technology and changing missions. With any movement, comes change and for change to be as efficient and least disruptive as possible, it must be managed via a combination of planning, communication, leadership, and other supporting factors. Hartwood supports organizational leadership with the planning, implementation, and follow-up for changes both big and small while ensuring that the disruption caused by the change is managed while allowing the organization to continue to perform its core day to day requirements to deliver services.
