Strategic planning, including visioning, stakeholders' analysis, mission statement, assessment of current situation,
identification of key issues and key goals, formulation of strategies and objectives setting. For example, the workshops on strategic planning
held in October and December 2003 for the Regional Development Agency North-East.
"The training courses delivered by Promeso Consulting helped us to strengthen our institution and take important steps in
achieving our goals. In fact, the development of the strategic plan was one of the most important step in defining Agency's vision and
mission. We are very pleased of what we have done together",Constantin Apostol, Director General, Regional Development
"Although time was short and issues discussed were many and important, the strategic planning workshop that I attended was so
structured as to attain its goal in full. The activity in working groups provided the opportunity for each and every participant to express
his opinion, to identify his place and role within the Technical Secretariat and the County Comission for Anti-Poverty and Social Inclusion
and to better understand how important is the co-ordination of all stakeholders’ efforts. I appreciate the facilitators’ hard work after
the workshop hours, their professionalism and "clear mind" that put things on the right track. We leave the workshop with a clear and realistic
vision on social issues existing in our county and a strong motivation to solve them.",Mariana Tulai, Senior Counsellor,
"Even if I knew about some planning elements, this workshop helped me to understand them in their depth and to become aware of
the importance of the team work. I may now confirm that I am able to draft the strategic development plan for my commune based on a thorough
poverty assessment. I enjoyed the working methods of Promeso Consulting and the way the workshop objectives were achieved. If team work is
employed, the number of poor people from Bistrita Nasaud county and Lesu respectively will considerably diminish.",Nicolae
Lupsan, mayor of Lesu commune, Bistrita Nasaud county
Integrated training programmes combining acquisition of skills and knowledge with attitude development exercises in
order to increase confidence and build commitment for continuous institutional development. We delivered, for instance, complex training programmes

Project design based on a thorough assessment of our client's needs and embedding innovative solutions to challenging
situations. We have designed several assistance programmes in regional development and enterprise restructuring for the European
Commission and the Department for International Development (UK).
Project management involving assistance for the implementation of various initiatives. This spans from providing
analytical techniques and tools to supporting the process of decision-making, planning, monitoring and control. It also involves the
design of dissemination strategies and development of policies and programmes.
Evaluations of programmes, projects, tender proposals and grant aid schemes, focussed on the relevance, effectiveness,
efficiency, impact and sustainability aspects. Attention is primarily put on identifying the net impact of a particular initiative in terms
of additionality, multipliers, displacement and substitution. An example is the ex-post evaluation of the human resources development
component of 1998 Phare "Regional Development and Cohesion Programme".
"We were very satisfied about the way Promeso carried out the evaluation of the Phare 1998 programme. The assignment included a
lot of activities: from collection of documents and related analysis to evaluation of projects in the field, interview with stakeholders,
production of the report and its dissemination. Everything was done very professionally and also taking into account the sensitivity of
the assignment. Your performance was above average: we got good value for money. Many reccommendations have been taken into account in
programming of Phare HRD 2000 in Romania and we also tried to make good use of this experience in the implementation of EU programmes
in Turkey",Milena Corradini, Country Manager, European Training Foundation (Italy)
"We are pleased to confirm every time, to everyone that your advisory service was highly professional in every aspect. [...]
The board of "Podul" was highly satisfied about strictly keeping the previous timetable. We were surprised that you even did more than
we agreed together. Your final report was highly professional as we are able to compare with Swiss standards. We could and would
recommend Promeso to everyone else. Thank you again, it was really a big pleasure working with you.",Irmgard Meier, Board
member, Podul – Die Br ü cke ( Switzerland )
