SmartCEO Names Arc Aspicio a 2015 Future 50 Company

Arlington, VA, February 9, 2015 – SmartCEO named Arc Aspicio as one of the 2015 fastest growing companies in the Washington, D.C. region. The Future 50 awards, SmartCEO’s most highly anticipated awards program, recognizes 50 fast-growth mid-sized companies in the region.

Winners have demonstrated a record of steady and significant growth in both talent and gross revenue. SmartCEO held a gala in January to celebrate the awards.

Arc Aspicio has seen continuous and notable growth despite a challenging market in the past few years. In 2013, the company grew 56%. SmartCEO recognized that the company continues to grow because of its strategic approach to acquiring new business exclusively focused on the homeland security mission. This expertise and the company’s approach to innovation are critical to agencies facing growing missions and shrinking budgets.

The company’s unique approach to talent management and its culture of learning and coaching are also unique.

“All employees make themselves accessible to each other, because they understand that everyone has something to contribute in the role of a coach or mentor,” said Lynn Ann Casey, Chief Executive Officer in response to a question about what makes Arc Aspicio’s approach to talent different from its competitors.  “Our formal mentoring program, which includes a peer coaching program for executives, creates a strong support network for our busy project teams.”

Arc Aspicio is profiled in the February issue of SmartCEO Magazine alongside the other winners. For more information about Arc Aspicio, please visit our website at www.arcaspicio.com

Confessions of a Chief Strategy Officer

Confessions of a Chief Strategy Officer

I’ll admit it, I was a little smug. After more than 20 years in the consulting business helping clients develop, implement, and integrate their strategies, I thought… “how hard could it be to do the same things for my own company – a company of consultants?” I had the commitment of my leadership, a group of talented people, and a plan and resources to grow the company. We had energy and we had a great process and tools to successful. What could go wrong?

Federal agencies have been undergoing significant transformation, requiring effective workforce strategies that can assist them in facing increasing challenges.

Innovation is difficult to harness for organizations of all sizes (Government and private sector alike). Replicating a process to encourage and produce innovation is even more challenging. Innovating in a structured space and time seems counter-intuitive, and begs the question: can thinking outside the box be a structured activity? Arc Aspicio recently held an Innovation Day to answer this question.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), created in 2003, undertook the most significant reorganization of federal agencies since the Cold War. It brought together federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies with a focus on securing the U.S. from threats in a collaborative way. DHS pulls together five complex mission areas: preventing terrorism and enhancing security; managing our borders; administering immigration laws; securing cyberspace; and ensuring disaster resilience.

Towards Preparedness and an Emergency Management Workforce of the Future

Grit and determination. This is what the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) workforce is known for. After what is arguably the most challenging year in its history, the FEMA leadership called on the agency to enable the workforce through four elements: build, empower, sustain, and train. A key factor in creating a scalable, sustainable disaster response workforce is to foster a proactive culture, one focused on preparedness. A proactive mindset can create an environment that asks the “what if” questions that lead to more prepared response efforts.
