Strategic Planning

Planning That Inspires Action

Strategic plans should motivate, engage, and inspire. At Incite, we work with our clients to craft strategic plans that provide clear direction, strategy, action, and execution.

While strategic plans should be ambitious, they also need to be realistic. This means making tough decisions about which objectives will be pursued and which will not.

We support organizations by providing the right set of planning tools, facilitation skills, and best practices to ensure boards, staff, and stakeholders are authentically and meaningfully engaged and buy into the process with enthusiasm to ensure the priorities and initiatives succeed when it comes time for implementation.

This can include, but is not limited to

  • Formal strategic planning
  • Team retreats
  • Strategic issues management
  • Targeted strategy sessions
  • Mission, vision, values development
