Strategic Planning & Organization Strategies

Business strategyWe help you focus on key strategic issues, and then act as your catalyst for change. In the day-to-day demands of operating a professional service firm, leaders can lose their direction and organizational effectiveness. A/E Consulting Services provides firms with the means of obtaining the focus to establish visionary, yet realistic plans, and the course of action for reaching those plans. Companies who have an effective executable plan will always have the advantage over companies who don’t.

We assist leaders of A/E firms to escape the reactive fire-fighting mode and progress into a forward-looking view of what truly needs to be accomplished to reach meaningful goals. An overview of the systematic process we use to facilitate firms in developing Strategic Planning & Organization Strategies is as follows:

  • Discuss with the leaders of the business the approaches that will be used in developing the strategic plan, the timing of the work, and the results that should be anticipated.
  • Gain an understanding of the business and its operating and management systems by reviewing and analyzing company information.
  • Examine key employees’ thoughts and ideas regarding company strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Also, examine where each individual fits in.
  • Work with the leaders to pre-plan the anticipated strategic planning results.
  • Conduct a strategic planning retreat: establish short-term strategic initiatives and long-range goals.
  • Draft ideas from the planning retreat, get additional input and ideas, continue to build commitment.
  • Finalize the strategic plan and organization strategies, set the plan in motion, confirm checkpoints and how to monitor the plan.
  • Follow-up and update the plans and strategies.

From the above process, a viable strategic plan and organizational strategies are developed that uniquely suit your firm.   A/E Consulting Services works with firms of all sizes from startup firms to firms in the $250,000,000 range in developing their strategies.

A good strategic plan is results-bound, not bookshelf-bound.
