Our Mission

Performance Quest is an innovative integrative practice that brings together a multi-disciplinary team of senior professionals in consulting, training, coaching, and focused data analytics, around a single mission:

This mission is a direct response to ongoing efforts by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and the Office of Management and Budget(OMB) to reduce waste in Federal Agencies’ spending, establish transparency and accountability, and enable data-driven decision-making. Our mission is about transformation.

Our Offering

We will collaborate with you to enable your organization for transformation, demonstrate your organization’s performance improvements, and leave you empowered to manage its continued transformation. The size of your organization will determine the scope of the change and the length of our engagement.

We  created a company that is nimble from its initial engagement with you. Our offer is designed to pinpoint the scope of the transformation, structured to support the addition of deep skills to the task at hand, staffed with just-in-time and as-needed experts whenever feasible; and we deliver more than Services and Analytics.

We also deliver the method that stays with you, allowing you to continue what we started together. We leave you with the tools you need to continue improving your organization’s performance, without dependencies.

“It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.” Charles Darwin

Our Values

“If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” Steve Jobs

Knowledge, Skills, Abilities (KSAs)

No single individual can have breadth an depth of knowledge in all expertise areas, or the skills to excel in everything they do to realize our customer’s Vision. Our decisions are fueled by knowledge and our follow-through by skills. Abilities are the sum result, being to individuals what capabilities are to organizations, with the ability to learn topping the list. We seek the strongest individual KSAs to assemble the highest performing teams.

“Ah, mastery… what a profoundly satisfying feeling when one finally gets on top of a new set of skills… and then sees the light under the new door those skills can open, even as another door is closing.”  Gail Sheehy

Integrity

We only engage with customers who have a Vision we can embrace ourselves. How can we truly invest ourselves in serving our customer if we don’t believe in what we do together? And we stand by that Vision, in true collaboration, steering aright all stray endeavors, our own, and our customers, to progress together towards realizing that Vision.

“I am not bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anyone who stands right, stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.”  Abraham Lincoln

Agility

Technology, threats, relationships… everything changes. But now, Change is an ongoing factor that cannot be ignored as we move towards that Vision. The trends in our government and our society shape how we must progress towards the Vision. Each individual in an engagement team is a learner and monitors the horizon in their domain, so we are ahead of change, positioning our customer to face the future as soon as it comes.

“Success today requires the agility and drive to constantly rethink, reinvigorate, react, and reinvent.”  Bill Gates
