Your “movie of the future”

Decision Associates’ strategic planning consultants use evidence-based data and insights with agility to create an actionable road map for your future.
As part of our strategic planning process, we challenge you to take an objective look at all aspects of your organization. Our objective is to create strategies that enable you to achieve and manage future growth. We then help your team develop realistic, actionable and measurable plans to drive success for the next three to five years.

Whether your company is a for-profit or nonprofit organization, Decision Associates’ strategic planning engages your team to create a “movie of the future.” The more everyone can visualize this “movie,” the more focused and aligned your organization will be.

Create the future you want for your business

Decision Associates’ strategic planning 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?

What makes Decision Associates’ strategic planning different?

Certainly, there are dozens of approaches to strategic planning. At Decision Associates, we believe that strategic planning is a dynamic and ongoing process that requires an organization-wide commitment.

To that end, when Decision Associates’ executive consultants lead a strategic planning process, rest assured that we will know your industry and organization. Our goal is to help you explore strategies across multiple timelines, stimulate regular communication, engage your strategy team and ensure execution and monitoring.
