Our organizational assessment process is designed to provide your organization with a clear and objective assessment of where you are today. It is an in-depth organizational assessment process that is focused on evaluating the organization's overall operations through key stakeholder interviews, surveys, focus groups and an operational systems audit. The assessment process also includes a study of the key contextual issues that may have an impact in fulfilling your organization's mission. The findings of this process provide the basis for strategic planning and an organizational development plan.
Our Strategic Planning Process is designed to define and focus the organization's vision and mission, and develop a strategic plan for the future. It is focused on "outcome oriented" planning, with an emphasis on developing strong consensus and "ownership" within your team on the future directions of the organization. It looks at building both the organization's core competencies as well as organizational capacity, with clearly defined strategic objectives (what you want to accomplish) and strategic outcomes (what you can measure to assess your effectiveness). Overall, it will enable the organization to "the next level" so that you can have a greater impact and see your vision realized.
The Organizational Development Process guides your organization through a systemic design, development and integration process focused on creating alignment between key organizational functions-governance, operations, teams and leaders. Whether we are focusing on individuals, teams or organizations, we start each project by getting to know the individuals and the organization through an extensive assessment phase in order to target areas of strength and opportunities for growth. A result of this process is an individualized development plan focused on catalyzing core level change and transformation in order to unleash individual and organizational potential. Our process is a long-term approach committed to providing ongoing encouragement through challenging and supportive coaching relationships.
