CREATE A WINNING PLAN
“Every organization has a current strategic plan and is implementing it for greater success.” Why that vision? Our research shows that 74% of leaders say their organizations don’t use planning to make strategic decisions and 70% of organizations with a plan fail to implement it. The good news is that our research also tells us that successful organizations are more likely to engage in planning, implement their plan, and use planning and implementation “best practices.”

tools for success
Our Fast Track Strategic Planning System has been developed based on 30 years of planning and execution experience with companies, non-profits, government entities, associations and entrepreneurs.
We focus on
what’s most important
Our system is a proven “strategic gap” planning process focused on what’s most important for success:
- Creating a shared vision built on mission and values.
- Identifying strategic gaps.
- Developing strategic goals, strategies and strategic initiatives with action steps to close the gaps and move the organization toward the vision.
- Implementation using accountability, measurement, adjustment, assessment and re-planning.
