The Mejorando Group has a proven record of partnering with organizations through the myriad issues influencing individual performance, group/team interactions, and overall organizational effectiveness. Our “hands-on” approach and ability to collaborate with all levels—from field personnel to executive management—enable us to integrate strategy, structure, process, quality, and culture to the desired end: optimal performance.
City of Alameda, California
The City determined a need to assess the Economic Development Department and requested an organizational review. Recommendations were the equivalent of a “sea change” for the Department as we focused on establishing a contemporary business strategy, reorganizing the structure, redeploying staff, adopting new programs and services, and accelerating the trajectory of success for the department.
Town of Queen Creek, Arizona
The Mejorando Group was engaged to conduct an efficiency and effectiveness study of all departments. Recommendations focused on organizational structure, staffing needs, use of technology, changes to key policies, and improved efficiency in service delivery all encompassed in a specific change management plan for implementation.
City of Savannah, Georgia
The Mejorando Group was retained to complete a management review of the City’s Human Resource Department.

“When the City of Folsom set its sights on improving customer service, we wanted to engage a consultant who would take the time to understand our unique situation and give us a completely customized solution. Working with Patrick resulted in breakthrough strategy, training and process improvement recommendations that have aligned the City’s organization, business processes, and employees, and have allowed us to build on our existing knowledge, skills, and abilities.”Evert Palmer
“Patrick Ibarra and the Mejorando Group provided exactly what we needed to begin the process of turning our organization around. His comprehensive ‘Blueprint for Change’ included specific recommendations to expedite progress regarding our strategy, organizational structure, services, management practices, leadership and culture. Regular updates allowed me to start implementing things before the final report came out: Most consultants want their report to be a “Gotcha” moment, but Patrick was like a team member, not an outsider. We’re thrilled to have a roadmap that will help accelerate the improvement of our organization over the next several years.”Donna Beedle
