We don’t believe in blowing the dust off a strategic plan just once a year. To help your company make its goals a reality, we accompany you through a customized and integrated process of writing, implementing and executing your plan. Our strategic planning model results in a living and breathing document you use everyday to guide the future of your organization.
Humans are wired to complete task after task linearly and reach an endpoint within their range of sight. That works for many goals, but the best way to plan strategically is not linear. To help clients understand, we compare it to painting a picture. We facilitate discussion and help you "paint" the picture of your company’s vision and opportunities within that vision. We look toward possibilities--what could be--and move you outside of your comfort zone to achieve results.
Many companies have visions in danger of becoming cloudy, lofty and seemingly unachievable. A strategic plan makes your dream quantifiable.
By verbalizing your Extreme Dream and giving it boundaries and definitions such as "Our company desires to achieve xxxxx amount of revenue by the year 2035," your vision comes to life, providing a beginning and endpoint to drive progress. Making your dream quantifiable also fuels your passion for growth and makes execution of your plan more realistic.
If you believe you can achieve your dream, you’ll accept the steps it takes to get there. That's called accountability. Our strategic planning process heavily stresses accountability and follow-up. We typically engage clients in regularly scheduled accountability sessions to adjust and monitor organizational progress, and that's how they make their dreams real.
