shaping the pieces of an organization, then integrating and coordinating those parts in
patterns and designs that serve a clear purpose, are the creative challenges perennially
facing boards and executive management teams. The rapid pace of change means that this
work is never finished and that the cycle of planning, implementing and evaluating must be
ongoing. Triangle Associates helps organizations design the systems and processes that
keep them vital, responsive and prepared for the future.
Through strategic planning, an
organization defines its mission and values, envisions the organization it intends to
become, and develops the goals and action steps that will move it toward that future
ideal. Strategic planning involves key leaders, employees and stakeholders in a process
whereby previous assumptions, conditions, rules and procedures are challenged and, when
necessary, changed. Triangle Associates uses a proven, eight-step strategic planning model
in working with organizations.
Triangle Associates uses
qualitative and quantitative approaches to analyze academic and service programs in higher
education and healthcare. Fiscal responsibility, effectiveness, personnel, and
availability and utilization of resources are surveyed and evaluated, program by program,
department by department, to provide decision-makers with timely, detailed and accurate
data for planning and budgeting.

Great Moments in
Struck by the similarities of information systems in nature, Lee Eng in 1955 was
the first to develop the notions of inter-connectivity. Using the model of a West Texas
prairie dog town, Eng encouraged his clients to build small interconnecting communication
tunnels in new office buildings. Eng built upon his early success with the later invention
of cubicle mazes and endlessly looping automated phone answering systems.
