Communicating Sharing honest and appropriate information with the right people at the right time is a key factor for successfully implementing new programs and organizational changes. As change occurs, people tend to make assumptions and formulate expectations with or without valid information. It is crucial that those responsible for implementing change provide timely and accurate information to help create and maintain realistic expectations.

QED helps clients develop integrated communication strategies and provides tools and products for communicating key messages. We have a team of seasoned consultants with organizational communications and organizational development expertise. This combination enables us to provide you with a dedicated team to help you successfully plan and implement organizational communications and change.

Our Approach. At QED we take a product-oriented approach to communications. We focus on identifying specific communication products for an organizational change initiative. The process includes collecting information, producing materials, and rapidly disseminating information to key internal and external audiences. Key aspects of the QED approach include:
  • Communication Strategy Development and Planning. Comprehensive planning is essential at the outset of an effective communication effort. Communication plans and strategies serve as the blueprint for communication activity. An effective plan includes key messages, target audiences, key contacts, vehicles for delivering messages to internal and external stakeholders, and potential factors that would lead to changes in the plan. Delivering timely communication activities and products to targeted audiences ensures that channels with key stakeholders remain open.
  • Partnership. A key component of the QED approach is forming a partnership with the client team to identify the most effective means of internal communications. We recommend that communication programs and initiatives be implemented by a small core team of clients and QED staff. This core team plans and disseminates key information to programs and personnel within the organization.
  • Product Development/Implementation. Our product-oriented approach enables us to deliver comprehensive communication materials in a timely manner. We offer a wide variety of product development services ranging from presentation materials and brochures to web site design and development.
