Description:

How do you keep strategic planning pertinent, timely, and actionable? At AGH, our approach integrates employee and key personnel input, a facilitated examination of current vs. desired status, and development of a unique strategy and plan to close the gap.

In a three-phase process, AGH consultants first gather information about the organization and its situation from employee surveys and one-on-one interviews to share with the organization’s leadership. Next, a facilitated planning retreat compares current reality to desired outcome, analyzes the gap and environment, and develops strategic plans and action steps to close the gap. In phase three, follow-up meetings tracking the action steps help ensure organizational accountability and follow-through.
