We design strategic plans that are practical and detail-oriented yet concise, with benchmarks and timelines to ensure accountability. Working with a planning team of diverse stakeholders, we facilitate a highly participatory process that ensures maximum investment in the final product.
Help your Board work more effectively and more strategically. We can help you with Board member roles, Chair/ED relationships, committee structures, leadership ladders, executive coaching, meeting planning, and more.
Improve your organization’s effectiveness and tell your story with data. We can help you define your desired outcomes, develop your measurement tools, and collect the right data. Tools may include surveys, focus groups, interviews, observation guides, or a new look at existing data. We can also analyze the data so that the lessons learned are readily understandable to everyone. Otherwise, what's the point?
We lead focus groups, board retreats and other meetings so that staff members can fully participate. These meetings can be part of a larger strategic planning or market research process or just a one-time event.
Ann Budner had the unique talent of bringing together individuals from a variety of backgrounds to be able to discuss and agree on a workable strategic plan with shared goals. The result of our work with her was a plan that represented a myriad of interests with measurable goals. I would highly recommend Ann and her talents to assist you in making your organization stronger!
