Developing and implementing a sound strategic plan is essential for an organization’s long-term success and sustainability. The strategic planning process is unique to each organization, can take between 3 and 6 months to complete, and requires organizational commitment, resources, and time. Depending on the status of their current strategic plan, some organizations may benefit from consultant support throughout the entire process while other organizations may only require consultant support for select components of the process.
A readiness assessment helps to highlight and examine organizational factors that are critical to the successful development and implementation of an effective strategic plan. Taking a proactive approach to identifying potential barriers that can derail your strategic planning effort can save the organization valuable time and resources. The cost of not being prepared for the strategic planning process can be significant, with strategic missteps or insurmountable barriers discovered when you are well into the planning process or, worse, months into implementation of the plan.
