The Center for Strategic Management was established in 1993 as a
consulting and training company, focusing on assisting federal
agencies in all facets of strategic and performance management. Dr.
Thomas G. McWeeney began the business after serving 18 years
in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as the head of
agency-wide planning, budget officer, and chief of agency evaluation
and management analysis programs.
Originally, the Center for Strategic Management
conducted training seminars and conferences for federal agencies.
However, in 1997 with the
development of its strategic plan, the FBI asked CSM to continue its
dedicated efforts by overseeing the implementation of the plan in
several highly visible programs. CSM began an extended period of
working closely with the executive management of FBI and other law enforcement
agencies, helping them with the transformation of their programs. In addition to the FBI,
CSM was awarded multi-year contracts with DEA, DOJís OCDETF Program,
the Legal Services Corporation, Court Services and Offender
Supervision Agency, FLETC, and the Department of Labor. CSM also
began an in-depth intervention with the Naval Criminal Investigative
Service (NCIS) as its Director undertook a comprehensive strategic
planning and agency-wide modernization effort. Currently, CSM has
increased its contract staff to 25 experienced consultants. Through
a decade of growth, CSM has become known as a preeminent consulting firm
guiding significant government change.
