What Strategic Planning
Can Help You Achieve
Implementing Effective Strategic Plans
Using a Strategic Framework
As seasoned leadership consultants, we help teams and organizations develop the critical elements of vision, mission, purpose, values and plan within a strategic framework.
We do this with facilitated sessions and using tools such as mission and vision building blocks, team exercises, core values surveys, and more. Our collaborative approach ensures that key stakeholders are engaged, fostering a sense of ownership and commitment to the strategic plan. We empower teams to craft a compelling vision, define their purpose and/or understand their mission, and chart a path forward as a vital step in achieving ambitious organizational objectives and attaining results you might never have thought were possible.
Your core purpose answers the questions ‘Why does your organization or team exist?’ and ‘Who do you serve and why?’ It motivates hearts and minds for a compelling cause that makes a difference in the world. This creates passion and commitment.
Mission (What and How)
Your mission answers the question ‘What will we do every day that will make your vision a reality?’ It describes your core competence, the value you provide for others, and who benefits from the services you offer.
Values are the guiding principles and beliefs that shape an organization’s culture and behaviour. They provide a moral compass, guide decision-making, and foster a cohesive and ethical work environment, enabling alignment and consistency in actions and interactions.
Vision (What and When)
Your vision is where you desire to be in the future. It should be a compelling and aspirational picture of what your organization aims to achieve or become. A vision should inspire and motivate stakeholders for change and growth, serve as a guiding star, and provide focus and direction for strategic planning and goal setting.
Strategic Plan (The Steps to Take)
Your strategic plan is a roadmap that outlines your goals, objectives, strategies, and actions to achieve your organization’s vision. It provides a clear direction, aligns resources, and facilitates effective decision-making, ensuring focused efforts toward long-term success.

Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend checking in on progress at least quarterly and updating your strategic plan at least annually due to a constantly changing business landscape. With our strategic planning services, you’ll come away with a repeatable process for updating your plan as often as needed.
If your organization or industry is rapidly evolving or a significant change is in the works, more frequent strategic planning may be necessary. Regular monitoring of progress, key performance indicators, and market trends can help identify when updates are needed. Ultimately, the goal is to maintain a plan that remains relevant, agile, and responsive to your evolving needs.
Leadership plays a crucial role in the strategic planning process. The leadership team should be the ones defining the vision, direction, and guidance for the organization. Leaders set the tone for strategic thinking and ensure that the planning process aligns with the organization’s vision, mission, and values.
Leaders also make key decisions regarding resource allocation, prioritization, and risk management. Their active involvement and support throughout the planning process are instrumental in driving the adoption and successful implementation of the strategic plan.
Strategic planning equips organizations with the tools and frameworks to navigate uncertain and changing environments. It encourages proactive thinking and the development of contingency plans.
