strategic planning

Strategic planning encompasses  change to bring long-range vision into your organization’s future desires and competitive differentiators. Through a series of processes and external viewpoints, we help you develop clear strategies against your purpose and mission that enable your organization to grow, change and succeed within your marketplace. Strategic planning takes into account all of the functional areas of your business to develop a comprehensive, connected plan that everyone in the organization can support and participate in.

Strategic planning includes input from a variety of sources:

  • External competitors and competitive forces
  • Internal core competencies and organizational strengths
  • Stakeholder views – both internal and external to your organization
  • Aspirations and predictable futures that support fulfillment of strategies
  • Short term tactical plans that align with your budgeting processes and funding plans to support resourcing and execution

The strategic plan is then developed through Leadership meetings and alignment to build tangible results for the organization. This effort becomes the pinpoint for how your organization will execute, grow and sustain itself.
