Strategic Planning

It all starts with strategic planning

service strategyWhat strategies does your organization have in place to help you achieve your business objectives? Are they documented and easily accessible to your leadership team? 

With decades of experience in strategic planning, Decision Associates in Erie, Pa., knows the importance of documenting a business' goals and the specific actions it will take to achieve them. Our consultants facilitate a proven process to create an actionable document that serves as a communication tool and provides a road map for execution. 

Whether your company is a for-profit or a non-profit organization, strategic planning is an exercise in "making a movie of the future." The better everyone on your team can visualize this "movie," the more focused and aligned your organization will be. We have helped a wide range of companies do exactly that, including manufacturers, professional services, nonprofitshealthcare and the public sector.

Create the future you want for your business

Our consultants work with you on the process and help direct your team in creating your movie. We do this through an engaging process that identifies and addresses three simple, but key phases of your business:

  • Current phase: Where are you now? What does your business look like today?
  • Future phase: Where do you want to be in three to five years? What will it take to get there?
  • Implementation phase: What are the steps you need to take today, tomorrow, next month and next year to make this happen?

We challenge your team to take an objective look at all aspects of your business in order to create strategies to manage future growth. Once we complete the planning process, we help your team deliver realistic, actionable and measurable plans that drive success over the next three to five years.
