Strategic Planning & Organizational Development

No two organizations are alike. Different people, structures, and organizational cultures require more than just a “cookie cutter” approach to organizational development. iBossWell, Inc. works with each client to determine the best way to move forward in the pursuit of excellence. When we meet a new client, we ask lots of questions and do a lot of listening. This helps us identify the current state of the organization’s development and recommend an approach that will address their most pressing needs. Learn more about our approach.

  • “Six or seven years ago, you helped us develop an organizational framework to guide us toward an unknown future. The future is still as unknown as ever, but the framework has helped us immensely to know where we are trying to go and whether we are making progress in getting there. And that’s worth a lot. “

    Elizabeth Richardson Center, Springdale, AR

  • “Thanks for continuing to invest in improvements to this terrific system. We look forward to continuing to refine and gain more experience with the tool.”

    American Pharmacists Association

  • “Thanks so much for your energy, enthusiasm and quality of effort that went into your work for ACCP at the Executive Committee meeting and the Board meeting today. The most common remark that I heard from Board Members was that “this is really good, and it’s just what we needed.”

    American College of Clinical Pharmacology, Rockville, MD

  • “It would not have been nearly as successful without your leadership and continued reinforcement of the importance of alignment between strategy/tactics/culture AND leadership!!!”

    FDA Office of Clinical Pharmacology

    Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City

  • “The retreat developed brilliantly over the 3 days & your input was vital. The highlight was clearly this session on conflict resolution as by then the group had bonded together in a nice way & could come to terms with some serious issues that were hiding under the surface.”


  • “This was our best board retreat ever. I thought there was good participation and give and take, that everyone seemed connected and energized for supporting the organization. I believe they all left the meeting with more energy than when they started, which is my primary criteria for the success of a board retreat.”

  • “Thank you so much for listening and coaching me today. You were very helpful and gave me some new insights!! I’ve not had an opportunity like this in the past – its motivated me to read and try out some new approaches. Thanks for caring. Wish me luck!”

    Senior Manager, Center for Disease Control, U.S. Government

  • “I am very grateful for the work that you have done with me as Executive Director/CEO and the overall staff team. Your coaching has increased my self-awareness and provided me with guidance and tools to do things in a different way. I have eased up on my perfectionist tendencies and have celebrated accomplishments and successes while still learning and growing from challenges. All very good. Finally, the team has benefited from your coaching, professional development work with the group such as the communications style and finally the strategic plan.”

    CEO of a National Credentialing Organization

  • “The greatest value WePlanWell brings is that the plan is now a living document. It’s accessible to multiple people, which makes sharing information about where we stand on implementation very transparent. Because we’re CARF accredited, the assessment and reporting functions are vital. Before WePlanWell, we’d spend hours assessing and documenting progress and activity, now we can do an assessment and immediately print out a color-coded dashboard report. It’s like this giant speed bump has been removed from our path. And because we’re doing these assessments at least quarterly, and have this snapshot of how we’re performing, we can identify issues or problems and implement changes quickly. The tool is so easy to use we can focus on implementing the plan and not on the clerical tasks of documenting and updating it.”

    Elizabeth Richardson Center/Social Services

  • “As we continue to expand our Board of Directors at HappyBottoms one of the best recruiting tools we have is to share our Strategic Plan in WePlanWell. Not only does it help the prospective Board Member know what we hope to do it shows how we track our progress every quarter.”

  • I am quite blown away by the amount of work we were able to accomplish, the quality and pace of your presentation, and I’m really happy about where we are positioned now that we’ve identified the major “rocks” in our Strategic Plan.

    CASA, Northwest Arkansas

  • “A powerful lesson we learned from the strategic planning process was not to try to be ‘all things to all people, The strategic planning process helped us identify who we wanted to be. It not only enabled us to rename ourselves and prepared us to celebrate our 125th anniversary but also it later helped us refine our core competencies. Really what occurred was a culture change. Through a highly involved process of working with staff from the agency and our Board, we have weathered the economic downturn and stayed focused.”
