Driven Strategic has a wealth of resources, knowledge, and associates who can customize consulting services and training to meet your organizations's needs. 

Our proprietor and senior consultant, Dr. Schaumleffel, uses his vast network of highly-qualified, highly-educated, and highly-experienced colleagues to put the right team together to complete the client's project or solve the client's problem.

Driven Strategic's model for creating the right team of experts is a nimble, organic model of bringing in mostly doctorally-trained experts on a project-by-project, task-by-task basis.  This model allows us to maintain a dynamic network of professionals and educators to:

• provide technical assistance

• provide educational opportunities for agency board members, professional staff, and program leaders; and

• develop, implement, and evaluate outcome-based programs to develop “best practices” through scientific research methods.

Consulting services range from full-service where we complete an entire project or provide a service for you to simply providing recommendations and advice. Consulting sessions can take a variety of formats and locations, including but not limited to organizational site visits, off-site meetings, phone calls, Skype meetings, e-mail and social media communication.

Driven Strategic can deliver services on-site at your agency, at regional training sites, and/or online through Web 2.0 technology. 

Our team of innovative problem-solvers and experts hold Ph.D.'s and have scores of years of hands-on professional experience in their fields.

We work on your timeline.  We work to help clarify your objectives and define what you are trying to achieve. We provide resources. We coach you as to the pros and cons of embarking on certain paths towards your mission, goals, and objectives.

We will listen, provide guidance, and bring clarity to your ideas that results in a clear, organized plan of action.  We can function as a coach and advisor, or depending on the project goals we can function as adjunct staff for your organization.
Potential clients receive a complimentary 30-minute listening session before requiring payment, which can be conducted by Skype or phone.

“Dr. Schaumleffel knows that the business of recreation services is complex and demanding at every level.  For our project on budgeting, capacity building, and Board Development he helped analyze complex problems and find solutions in the best spirit of both teacher and business consultant.  His knowledge, ready availability, attention to detail, and personal approach made working with his team a valuable experience.  Punctual, prepared, well planned and presented, he is a great resource to our profession.”
