Strategic Planning

To achieve your goals, you must have a plan. We provide comprehensive strategic planning for organizations from vision, mission and values development to clarification of distinctive competencies. Successful companies establish a focus for employees to rally around. This creates a positive environment and centers the goals and objectives toward the organization's future.

A strategic plan that is properly implemented and communicated can serve as the organization's focus. Maybe you have a plan and it just needs "dusting off". We can help you bring new life to your existing strategic plan, or develop one from scratch.

Our strategic planning process is comprehensive and uses the latest thinking on developing a competitive strategic plan. We'll use tools like the Balanced Scorecard™ to create a measurable and systematic roadmap that helps you achieve what matters most to your organization. We will help you develop the right plan to get you from where you are to where you want to be, and help you identify your fundamental business objectives and the measures you can employ to track your success.

Elements of Strategic Planning include:
  • Setting a shared direction
  • Examining core competencies
  • Exploring/designing your business model
  • Challenging creative thinking
  • Exposing to new thought processes
  • Recognizing real values
  • Examining your environment
  • Discovering the drivers and influencers
  • Creating a proactive customer service plan
  • Examining roles and responsibilities
  • Assisting in implementing your plan
