Performance Management Workshops & Training

 

Specialized Workshops

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.
