Strategic and Business Plan Solutions

Our planning services incorporate:

  • Analysis of organizational purpose and capacity
  • Internal organizational assessment
  • Financial analysis
  • External market analysis

Products for Planning Solutions

We deliver written plans aligned to specific outcomes with built-in metrics to monitor success — keeping people and programs accountable for performance. Multi-year financial projections are developed with plans so that the budget is consistent with strategies.  Plans can be detailed narrative, for internal and external use, or dashboard style.

Coaching Support Solutions

Where specific initiatives have universal support prior to completion of the plan, we recommend and provide coaching through their launch.

How we work with you

Glick Davis & Associates supports your organization's self-assessment and refinement or ongoing clarity of organizational direction. We apply a range of planning methodologies, tailored to your situation.We help you develop visionary strategies, with hands-on assistance to realize lasting change and sequenced plans that stick, to get the outcomes you're seeking.  We also 'stay the course', working with you to implement the change through cultural and political barriers - during "life after the plan."

Our approach to planning is participatory. We involve the organization’s leadership throughout the process to build buy-in, generally starting with a planning committee.  We start by working with you to identify the right stakeholders and your vision of success.  Then we determine the most positive, productive process to get the job done.  Through in-person facilitated retreats, in-person and web-conference style meetings, we work collaboratively with you to develop, launch, and follow through on plans.
