Is your current strategic plan truly strategic? Does your team have a shared understanding of your organization's long-term goals and are you actively engaged in achieving them? Has your planning document been gathering dust on the shelf? Or, have you have not yet created a strategic plan and aren't sure where to begin?
Wherever you are in the process, we will meet you where you are, help you craft a unique strategic plan that identifies purposeful direction, and guide your organization toward outcome-based action.
Songbird Leadership's strategic planning process includes the following milestones to help you meet your organization's unique objectives:
A plan that is truly strategic is based on current research, both within your organization, as well as within the external environment. Songbird Leadership's strategic planning methodology is data-supported, allowing you to have all of the information necessary to make important, informed decisions.
Mission, Vision, and Values Clarification
An organization's mission, vision, or values may change over time, depending on a variety of factors. Before any goals are created, we ensure that your key stakeholders have a unified perception of the purpose and direction of your organization.
Long-Term Goal and Objective Creation
The most important outcome of your strategic planning process is the creation of truly strategic goals. We'll help you focus on the most critical issues to be addressed during the life of your plan.
Implementation Planning and Financial Impact
Effective and timely implementation must take place to ensure buy-in and the ongoing success of the plan. A strategic plan's financial impact must be considered for funding and budgeting purposes. Together, these two features of your strategic plan create a defined, outcome-based path toward the achievement of your goals.
Monitoring for Success
Songbird Leadership is committed to the long-term success of your strategic plan. We establish regular touchpoints throughout the duration of your plan to ensure that outcomes are achieved as intended - or adjusted, as necessary, due to an unexpected shift in your organization's landscape.
Would you prefer to focus on shorter-term initiatives? Our Goal-Setting Summit is a one-day retreat, during which leaders of your organization gather for the facilitated creation of goals for the coming year. Participants will come away with a unified purpose, clear direction for the months ahead, and accountability for every action.
