About Us

Management Analysis and Development (MAD) is a nationally recognized fee-for-service management consulting group providing custom-designed services to public service clients.

MAD has been helping state government work more effectively since 1985. We've done this by working side-by-side with our clients, understanding their specific problems and developing practical solutions with them. We've guided diverse stakeholders to agreement, streamlined complicated processes, and coached managers through challenging strategic and operational decisions. We've done research, analysis, and writing when client organizations are stretched thin. We live in state government and know the challenges. We listen to you, your staff, your stakeholders-to understand the problems, explore opportunities and develop solutions you can embrace.
