Since each agency and its performance management system are unique, OPM can develop specialized trainings and workshops based on agency need. While our various off-the-shelf trainings are customized for each customer agency, those trainings may not be enough. If your agency has had a recent policy change or new program related to performance management, OPM Consultants can develop a specialized training and/or workshop for that policy or new program.
