PARCC Practice Group

PARCC offers consulting and training services to organizations around the country. Its practice group specializes in large group meeting facilitation, citizen engagement, mediation, strategic planning, and both  group and organizational-level  assessment and development.  We develop the capacity of individuals, groups, and organizations to understand their issues and manage them productively.

PARCC provides training that builds collaborative skills of public managers: facilitation, collaborative problem solving, mediation, and negotiation.  In addition, we specialize in training and coaching labor and management groups in collaborative work, in equipping managers with the ability to engage citizens, in helping communities to lead change.

Unique to PARCC is our integration of graduate students in consulting and training.  For many of our projects, professional students from the Maxwell School assist consulting faculty as recorders, coaches, small group facilitators.  They learn and our clients have the benefit of smart, committed future leaders.
