Small Planet Works (SPW) designs workplace solutions that people and processes rely upon to achieve organizational objectives. Our Performance Excellence Series is composed of four major practice areas - Organizational Development, Process Management, Business Continuity/Cybersecurity, and Community Resilience.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) – Racial inequities are not random. Unfair and unjust government policies and practices have created and sustained inequities over time. The Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) defines racial equity as "when race can no longer be used to predict life outcomes and outcomes for all groups are improved." SPW has in-depth experience that matters, derived from our leadership in applying racial equity to policies and procedures, infrastructure, land use, comprehensive planning, community resilience, hazard mitigation, transportation, and culturally-competent community engagement initiatives.

Equity is both a process and an outcome. It is the process of recognizing historical legacies and current realities of discrimination and prejudice that people from marginalized communities experience. The outcome is that one’s identity or zip code does not predict the measure of success or disparities in access to resources, opportunities, and results; which in turn, are maintained by systems of power, privilege and supremacy.

Organizational Development - SPW helps organizations to focus on aligning the organizational culture and strategy to drive sustainable performance results. We help leaders at all levels reach their performance goals through engaging and sustainable development experiences. We design award-winning leadership development programs as stand-alone engagements and larger leadership strategies to provide the right development opportunities to the right audience and maximize the positive impact to the organization. We help our clients work toward a realistic, integrated, and accountable roadmap to success – from organizational assessment to strategic planning and implementation.

Process Management – SPW focuses on critical business processes that enhance the organization’s ability to deliver goods and services. Our services provide the vital infrastructure upon which streamlined processes, systems integration, corporate culture and knowledge sharing are built.

Business Continuity/Cybersecurity – Our Team utilizes a full breadth of services to help public and private sector organizations preserve the safety and security of people and assets. SPW’s staff of professionals designs, develops, and implements Business Continuity Planning, Continuity of Operations (COOP), Emergency Operations Planning and Cybersecurity Frameworks that provide effective prevention, mitigation, preparation, response and recovery in the event of natural and man-made disasters.

Community Resilience & Hazard Mitigation – SPW works with communities to anticipate risk, limit impact, and bounce back rapidly through mitigation, adaptability, evolution, and growth in the face of turbulent change. Our practices and processes focus on a whole-community approach.
