We Bring You Learning from 100s of Successful Planning Projects
We've facilitated successful strategic planning for a wide variety
of organizations, including start-up, nonprofit, for-profit and government.
We've facilitated plans for a wide variety of purposes, including to
give clearer focus and direction to the organization, add a new product
or service, build the Board of Directors, improve organizational performance,
and address a range of issues in the organization. Each different purpose
requires a different approach to planning -- we can do them all.
You Get Complete Ownership and Commitment of Your Employees
There's growing cynicism about strategic planning. Too often, plans
sit, collecting dust on shelves. That's because the planning process
did not suit the nature and needs of the organization. A new or small
organization should not be overwhelmed with numerous meetings and 100s
of hours of research -- those organizations might even be worse off
than if they hadn't done planning at all.
Different cultures have different ways of making decisions and solving
problems. Those cultures must be honored in the planning process. We
suite the planning process to the nature and needs of your organization.
We always ensure the process is relevant, realistic -- and flexible.
Plans are not meant to be carved in stone. Few plans are implemented
as planned. Plans can be changed -- but they should be changed systematically,
and we help you to do that, if necessary.
We're Experts -- We Teach Other Consultants How to Facilitate Strategic
We're recognized experts in strategic planning. One of our most popular
trainings is about how to facilitate strategic planning. We teach consultants
how to facilitate plans with any type of group and for any purpose in
planning. We bring those teaching skills into our facilitation, as well.
During the planning process, planners should be taught how to enrich
their own planning process, well into the future. We can bring that
expertise to your organization.
