Strategic Planning

Where are you going?
How do you assess opportunities?
Limit downsides?

I work with groups to catalyze the focus of their strategic planning so the time spent zeros in on what, if addressed, will increase impact, capacity, resilience or sustainability.

Key elements:

Getting the right people involved, thinking through what you need to know and understand in the process to propel you forward, designing a process that is appropriate for your need and meets your time frame, ensuring a practical, effective bridge to action.
