“EmergyCare retained the services of Decision Associates in the fall of 2009 to guide us through the Strategic Planning process. Don Moore and his group of experts took our senior management team and select Board members through what I felt would be an arduous process. What resulted was a stronger senior team and a cohesive relationship with our Board of Directors, not to mention a roadmap (Strategic Plan) for the next 3-5 years. I definitely recommend Decision Associates to the nonprofit sector as we completed another update in 2015, and we continue to use them as the need arises.”
