Strategic Planning

"If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail" - Benjamin Franklin

Here are a list of questions you can ask yourself to help you determine if you are in need of a refreshed strategic plan for your organization. 

  • Does your organization have a clearly defined vision?
  • Does your organization have a unified mission?
  • Can your employees uniformly present your organization's value proposition?
  • Do you have a clearly defined "ideal client profile"?
  • Do your products and services support your organization's vision and mission?
  • Do you have a defined client segmentation?

Strategic Planning Testimonial

"The biggest benefit we see from LIFT is when you have a third party come in and facilitate and drive your strategic planning, you're able to then participate as a participant than as the President leading it. So I think everybody is a bit more open to it, because it feels like a group exercise not just "oh the President's talking so this is what we need to do." Also having that third party facilitate that, they don't report to us, so they are more willing to challenge us on some of the harder questions that maybe internally wouldn't do."

-Shaun Trudell, President of Automation Arts 

LIFT Consulting, LLC Provides Three Types of Strategic Planning Solutions

Boot-Camp Strategic Planning Sessions

Our boot-camp strategic planning sessions are designed for the organization that needs a quick strategic planning refresh. Boot-Camp Strategic Planning Sessions typically occur over a 1/2 day, full-day or two-day strategic planning session. 

Project Based Strategic Planning Sessions

Organizations occasionally require a deeper dive into their business before completing a strategic plan. Our project-based strategic planning sessions are designed to help organizations see the "forest through the trees" and develop a new strategy for their business or revise an existing strategy. Project-Based Strategic Planning Sessions typically occur over the course of one to three months. 

On-Going Strategic Planning

Some organizations prefer to develop a strategic plan and work on that plan on a recurring basis. LIFT Consulting offers on-going solutions developed to assist organizations in the research and development of their plan to the long-term execution of this plan. Allow LIFT Consulting to be your compass and keep your organization pointed to "true north". 

A Strategic Plan That Is Well Communicated Gives You Access To Greater Productivity, Culture, Empowerment, & Overall Effectiveness 

Who Could Benefit from Strategic Planning?

  • People and departments are often not on the same page and aren't aligned with an organization's vision, mission, and goals

  • Resources are wasted, including time and money, on projects or activities that are not important or not priorities

  • We are in a constant reactive state, seemingly never prepared for industry changes and competitive forces and the impact that it can have on our organization in the coming years

  • When we have established strategic plans, but we struggle to determine "how" to accomplish them

  • We set lofty goals, but rarely accomplish what we set out to do

  • Our team lacks accountability, and thus, we have an inattention to results related to our strategic plan
