Strategic Planning

Strategic planning with a purpose.

Strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce decisions and actions that guide and shape what an organization is, what it does and why it does it.

The use of outside facilitation can bring, and guide participants through, a proven and successful process to consolidate relevant information, incorporate information from key stakeholders engagement, and develop a process to support both governance and operations in strategic planning. A facilitated process can also ensure that the resulting strategic plan is tied to the governance needs for not only setting ends to achieve, but identifying measures of success. A good strategic plan also lays out a clear process that supports the operation’s needs for reporting on results.
