Supporting a Federal Agency in defining its future portfolio management framework and embracing the change

Problem Areas

What Did M2 Do?

Working collaboratively with our client and their 900+ Workforce located in offices across the country, we assessed their current organization structure, budget structure, and governance processes.

Change Management
  • Held over 30 working group sessions we co-created and socialized a new proposed organization structure decisions
  • Pressure tested the to-be organization design by running theoretical use cases and defining future offices roles and responsibilities
  • Developed a reorganization package that consisted of office, division and branch functional statements, crosswalk of employees from current to future state, employee position descriptions, and corporate memorandums that captured key decision points
  • Assisted the client with their budget restructure, the establishment and implementation of their portfolio management structure, and implementation of a new tranparent decision making structure


Partnering with our client, they were able to gain Congressional approval to restructure their budget, workforce, and gain efficiencies through leveraging portfolio management – all within a year’s timeframe.
