​​​​Strategic Plans are multi-year plans for non profits that identify 3-5 priorities the organization will focus on. Each priority is accompanied by goals and key actions that ensure they can be completed. At CMCS we offer a range of approaches for Strategic Planning. It can be as straightforward as a one-day Board retreat or it can involve several other steps. Planning is always best when it includes input from all stakeholder groups, input that is obtained through focus groups and electronic surveys. Once the input has been provided, we consolidate it and fashion a draft plan for review by the Board of Directors and/or Management Team. When the draft is finalized, we also help you create an implementation plan that ensures the goals are met.
