The Results Management Team (RMT) at the Center on Education and Training for Employment (CETE) empowers organizations, communities and schools through collaborative planning, evaluation and capacity-building. Staff utilize cutting-edge methodologies to increase organizational efficiency and effectiveness. This expertise is bolstered by support from CETE and staff, students and faculty in the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University.
RMT approaches projects in a collaborative and supportive manner, opting to partner with clients to achieve desired organizational and community outcomes. By recognizing the uniqueness of each project, RMT has become adept at crafting custom solutions that address the specific needs of each and every client.
Thoughtful and effective planning is crucial to the success of any program, organization or community. RMT lends its collective expertise by analyzing the environment and assessing needs and threats and then in empowering clients to achieve success. Insights speak to successful strategic planning, resource development and effectual policy recommendations.
Even the best planned project needs to be evaluated. RMT’s evaluation process is based upon the concepts of “outcomes based funding,” which provides funders with the tools necessary to make resource investment decisions with a desired outcome in mind. RMT’s evaluation process enables the collection and analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data in order to obtain an accurate and informed appraisal of project success. Thoughtful evaluation identifies opportunities for building organizational capacity and informs future program planning and policy decisions.
As a program, project or team evolves, new challenges and opportunities require new skills. RMT has the ability to foster professional growth and empower teams. Through coaching, manual development and community and stakeholder engagement, RMT ensures that the assets employed in a project are utilized in the most effective way possible. Capacity improvement is typically informed by evaluative activities and yields powerful insights for current and future project improvements.
With a knowledgeable and experienced staff and the considerable resources of CETE and The Ohio State University, RMT has the tools your organization needs to achieve its goals. RMT staff members include Barbara Boone, Beth Crawford, David A. Julian, Scott Renshaw, Melissa Ross, Carolyn Vesely and Meredith Wellman.
