When you’re in the weeds, it is difficult to envision a preferred future that is one, three, five or even ten years down the road. Strategic planning at its simplest is a plan stating the company’s or organizations desired results, the way they are going to achieve them and how they’ll measure success.
We approach strategic planning by looking through the lens of collaboration and engagement. Clients and key stakeholders are invited into the process and through a model of appreciative inquiry we help you begin to see the best way forward.
A strategic plan will help you define the scope of your activities, define strategies for achieving your goals, outline how those strategies will be implemented, bring clarity and cohesion to your team, give you measurements for defining success and ultimately increase productivity as there will be an established shared mandate for everyone to turn to as they seek to complete their responsibilities well.
