Program Planning and Management

Strategic Planning

DEC offers experience in strategic planning for organizations and programs of all size and scope, from online learning efforts just starting out to large programs involving global participants. DEC can help your stakeholders align around key priorities and measures of success.

Project Planning and Management

DEC provides capacity and expertise in the planning and execution of courses, events, website development and other education-related projects. If your commitments have grown faster than your staff, DEC can assist with delivering on obligations on time and at high quality.

Evaluation Planning and Execution

Educational programs often struggle to gather and use timely information to make program management decisions or inform stakeholders. DEC supports the development and execution of program evaluation that provides a clear picture of where your effort is at and helps you better steer the direction it is going.
