Regardless of their mission, without clear strategies that enjoy broad internal consensus, few organizations manage to achieve their goals.
True strategy planning requires both science and art. No one can jump straight to strategy. We analyze the ecosystem with rigor, pressure test goals until they squeak, measure and negotiate gaps, and only then, set strategy. We then ensure that strategy flows seamlessly downstream to tactical roadmaps. As difficult as it is to acquire technical expertise in this discipline, that is the simpler part. We also have to combine skill with judgment and experience to offer clients the complete package.
A framework is necessary, but its success requires discernment and expertise. OE’s strategic planning principles have led and managed for profits, start-ups, nonprofits, and philanthropies. We listen well. We are prudent and know how to manage risk. We become your partners for the time it takes to set your organization up for success.
