From his position as manager of the Department of Practice Standards, Kensi managed to lead teams in the strategic planning and change management processes. He helped to develop performance standards designed to lead officials to better monitor performance standards. In the process, he helped to change the Practice Standards Department's approach to regulatory issues, from a reactive posture to one that is more proactive, and he implemented that approach in the Department's overall strategic plan. Now, the Department is better able to identify regulatory concerns and problems before they arise, which makes them more effective.
