Facilitated Strategy Session

Project Details

What We Need
  • Expert third party advice on process or managerial changes, geographic or programmatic expansion, potential pivots, or general strategic planning
  • Facilitation of an intensive, one-day strategic planning session with staff and/or Board
  • Note: If necessary, a follow-up strategic planning session may be scheduled
Additional Details

We're looking for someone to facilitate a retreat style operations planning session (or two) to help kick start an annual process that will keep us on track with our strategic goals. This project should help us outline the next 6 months and provide a clear map for accomplishing what we've prioritized.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have strategic goals, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have FY21 budget, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to spend time intentionally driving our mission forward and not stuck in the weeds of project and goal implementation.

We have some general strategic goals, but we need an actionable plan for accomplishing them. This project is somewhere between flying the plane as we build it and planning for the future, but we're hoping to find a schedule of planning an implementation that allows us to plan ahead by about a year. We need something that sets us up so that the next time we do this sort of operations planning the plane is built and it's all goals for the next year.

Project Plan

Prep: Distribution of Prep Materials
  • Organization provides relevant background materials to make initial meeting more productive
