Master (Strategic) Planning Services
“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
–ANATOLE FRANCE, JOURNALIST, POET, NOVELIST
I like to call significant planning for organizations
Master Planning. I think strategic planning is a tired term and it doesn’t capture all that is necessary in order for a planning process to be successful.
Strategic thinking is essential to a successful plan. For me, the distinction is that a Master Plan is a more dynamic and expansive way of describing the inspiring path taken as people chart the organization’s future in both innovative and practical ways. I’ve seen way too many strategic plans fall short of goals because a “how to” link is missing between strategic thinking and successful implementation.
I have designed and facilitated planning processes and board and team retreats with over 60 organizations. I’ve learned much and shared much of "what works" with clients as we design the plan and bring it to life.
"Our new strategic plan is the best ever. Colleen led our process and all of the team was engaged in a way that was effective and not encumbered.
Our plan is dynamic. It’s a resource that guides our operations rather than sitting on the shelf.
I never knew I’d actually enjoy strategic planning."
