Strategic Planning Facilitators

When it comes to Strategic Planning, good facilitation isn’t about a better meeting…

It’s about confidence that you will achieve your growth targets. Or confidence that the Board and the Executive Director are on the same page. It’s about having the right priorities and a clear plan.

We want to help you achieve your goals, not just run a better meeting. Over the past 30 years we have facilitated over 1,000 strategic planning sessions. In that time we have learned a lot about what works, and what doesn’t. 

Strategic Planning Process

It all starts with the right process. You need a process that is right for you. There are so many to choose from. One of our current favorites is Hambrick’s Strategy Diamond. But the right process is not enough. You also need to use that process well. A SWOT analysis (Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities and Threats) is a great tool. Yet we see so many examples of bad SWOTs. Brainstorming your strengths is not a good approach. Doing a competitive comparison to determine your strengths is.

We believe that whatever process you want to use, we can help you do it better. Try us.

Virtual Strategy Sessions

2020 was the year of the virtual meeting. Using new tools like Zoom with the right facilitator can make these meetings extremely productive. Combine them with well designed online surveys as pre-work and you have a winning combination.
