Under the focused stewardship of your board, we support your organization’s strategic planning through facilitated discussions that:

  • Unearth the skills essential to effectively govern and lead your organization
  • Validate or reframe your vision, mission, and values
  • Review your market data, stakeholder analysis, internal and environmental scans
  • Frame your definition of success 
  • Develop and determine your key priorities
  • Align your people to the mission of your organization

Vantage Point's Strategic Planning Approach

Vantage Point’s strategic planning model will take your board and leadership team through brainstorming and visualization exercises that provoke generative conversations, identify and prioritize your stakeholders and key opportunities, and define your vision for a better community.

With your organization’s goals and situation in mind, we can design and facilitate a strategic planning process from basic to comprehensive that incorporates one to four sessions with your staff and board. Our approach is focused on aligning your organization’s purpose with directives that guide you over the next 3 years. Board and staff will come away with a re-affirmed, high-level direction and renewed commitment to your mission and vision.
