Our strategy sequence allows start-ups, non-profits, philanthropies, and established businesses to complete a board-approved strategy - ready for use with investors, donors, and other stakeholders - in as little as one month.
Organizations often approach strategic planning in ways that guarantee aggravation and disappointment. Executives complain that their boards try to interfere in management decisions; boards complain that executives want uncritical approval. Tense, rushed “strategy days” and board meetings ignore both questionable assumptions and viable alternatives, producing strategies and plans that are “pious statements of the obvious presented as if they were decisive insights.”
Over five sessions and three consultations, our strategy sequence will allow your board and managment to work together productively on strategy. We will focus on a small number of key questions, with discussions structured to relieve unneeded pressure and encourage individual and group reflection even as you make steady progress toward a clear, distinctive, and practical strategy.
Through the strategy sequence, you will craft a strategy in which your management and board have confidence, while vastly improving their relationship.
