Successful organizations use strategic planning to prepare them for opportunities and challenges and to chart a course that will help the organization move forward toward common goals. moss+ross can guide your organization through a comprehensive strategic planning process to maximize efficiency and impact.
We will customize and manage a planning process that promotes participation, innovation, and collaboration, bringing collective attention to future challenges and opportunities your organization is expected to face. We will examine data and work with you to ask the big questions to be studied during the process, which for many organizations includes succession planning. moss+ross will guide a collaborative, inclusive process and create a focused, measurable action plan for your board and staff. By identifying over-arching goals and defining steps to achieve them, you will be able to respond proactively to current and future needs.
The people who serve your organization as staff, board members, and volunteers are passionate advocates for you, and they want to do their jobs well. Our approach is to listen carefully and learn where you are, then design a custom response that will help you move forward, whether you need staff coaching, volunteer training, or an effective team retreat.
CLIENT CASE STUDY
A Raleigh organization was operating under an expired Strategic Plan, and received a capacity building implementation grant from a foundation to develop a new plan. moss+ross led a process to engage stakeholders, examine organizational initiatives, develop priorities, and identify implementation plans. The result was a comprehensive documentation of mission, vision, goals, and strategies for the next three years, tied to where the leadership wants to be in ten years.
CLIENT CASE STUDY
A Durham organization called upon moss+ross for an update to its Five-Year Strategic Plan. The organization was meeting the goals of the previous plan and anticipated that the new plan would be a simple update. moss+ross helped the client broaden participation in the planning process, yielding new ideas, collaborations, and a wider constituency, and facilitated the Board’s consideration of new actions to meet the goals. The result was a stronger, forward-looking plan that reflected the organization’s opportunities for impact.
