Agriculture Strategy - Service

Keywords: Strategic Planning, family business, human resource


We help farm families “Focus on what matters” by Improving Farm Decision Processes. 

We provide five separate yet integrated services: 

  1. Common Plan:  We get everyone to “focus on the big picture” through a simplistic strategic planning program.  By helping the family define a common strategy everyone “starts pulling in the same direction” reducing conflict and improving farm profit drastically. 
  2. Family Meetings:  We host a family business meeting on a quarterly basis.  We help farm families define key business metrics cascading down from the farm’s strategy and then on a scheduled basis review these targets brainstorming ways to improve performance.  We review business opportunities that are on the horizon and constructively evaluate these opportunities. 
  3. Business Analytics Using software technology and modern management tools we do “the nerd work” to enable your family to make informed strategic decisions. 
  4. Advisors We import farm advisors from across North America using Webinar technology to bring in a fresh perspective to the farm’s strategy/management systems.
  5. Human Resources:  We help the farm evolve their human resource management systems so that key metrics are achieved successfully by everyone within the farm organization.  We also help with recruitment, training programs and employee performance reviews.

We never tell farmerswhat to do but focus on improving how they make, implement and hand over decisions.
