After years of working in Government as a Human Resource management professional, Tim Barnhart founded FMP in 1991. His goal was to build an HR consulting firm that could fill a missing space in the management consulting marketplace: transforming the highly regulated business of Federal Human Resources Management into a strategic asset for Federal agencies. Tim has thirty years of strategic human capital experience in a broad range of disciplines. He has been instrumental in the design and implementation of a number of HR Demonstration projects and alternative personnel systems across Government.
Tim has been cited in Michael Hammer’s The Reengineering Revolution for his contributions regarding business process reengineering in the Federal environment. He has presented at numerous conferences and symposia, and his views on HR in the Federal Government are frequently quoted in Government Executive Magazine and other professional publications. Tim recently spearheaded FMP’s efforts to write FMP’s new book: Human Capital Management: What Really Works in Government. Tim is Chairman of FMP’s Board of Directors. He holds a B.A. in English and Philosophy from William and Mary and an M.F.A. in English and Writing from Syracuse University.
