For organizations in the civic sector, strategy may mean how and when to grow, redefining one’s mission, or taking on ambitious new goals. Our team works with senior executives to identify the strategic objectives that are most important to their organization. We support development of agency-wide strategies and initiatives to meet those objectives, and transform ideas into practical plans for implementation.
