utilizes a pragmatic "get real" approach to strategic planning for your
organization. Our menu of component services, which can be modified to meet
your planning needs and budget, includes:
We design, compile and interpret member surveys (both hard copy and
electronic). Then conduct and analyze focus groups of key stakeholders so your
future directions are rooted in facts-not hearsay. This is a recommended first
step in the planning process.
We facilitate your planning retreat by asking the tough questions so you can identify the right answers for your future. Using a combination of pre-meeting exercises to engage your planning group's thinking with thought provoking questions at the retreat, we help you "peel the onion" and discover your true mission and highly focused key initiatives.
Starting at the planning retreat and continuing with post meeting staff
executive discussions, we create an annual action plan. This results-based
management tool details for each key initiative: action steps, timelines,
assignment of responsibility, and measurements of success. This document is
used throughout the year by staff and the Board of Directors to create a strong
sense of accountability for accomplishment.
