Strategic Planning

Every successful organization needs a clear vision of where it wants to go and a road map to help it get there.

 

The i BossWell consulting team will work with you to design a strategic planning process that meets the unique needs of your organization.  Our services range from facilitation of standalone strategic planning retreats to consultation and support to guide a comprehensive planning process that gives you access to a full range of internationally recognized best practices for strategic plan development and management.

 

You can engage i BossWell to support you in a variety of ways:

 

Consulting and Support for Full Strategic Plan Development

The most effective planning process encompasses clarification of the vision, mission and values of an organization and examines the environmental factors that do or could influence attainment of that mission. This insight becomes the foundation for crystalizing strategic priorities and building out the operational tactics needed to drive the day-to-day work of the organization to fulfill of its mission and goals. Finally, strategic plans that are most successful clearly define accountabilities: who will do the work, when will the work be undertaken, and what additional resources are required in order to complete it.
