We believe that every strategic plan must reflect the organization’s culture and values, the population and type of community it serves, the economic condition and development potential, and most importantly, the kind of outcomes it seeks. There is no one cookie-cutter solution. We believe that each organization is unique and while there are certain best practices that we bring to inform the planning process, each organization must chart its own future based on its unique culture, community, and history.
Additionally, no consultant – or for that matter, professional staff alone – can drive a strategic planning process. It must be embedded in the leadership of the organization, which ideally reflects the leadership and values of the local community. As consultants to your organization and community, we will serve as a trusted guide, facilitator of discussions, an interviewer of your key stakeholders, a provocateur to raise neglected questions or issues, and ultimately as your organization’s scribe, faithfully reflecting the many decisions reached as part of the planning process.
