Through telephone interviews and/or mailed surveys, Group Dimensions International will help you assess the needs and interests of key players in advance of your strategic planning session. This step facilitates consensus-building and maximal use of strategic planning time. Program evaluation questions feed into the best strategic planning: evaluate, analyze, talk to your staff and clients or intended beneficiaries, revise your deliverables=higher quality and efficiency in future programming and policies!
GDI will review past strategic plans, annual reports, and other organizational documents to prepare a "situation analysis" that will help key players grasp the central issues quickly--before the session begins. We will integrate data from the needs assessment and the situation analysis to help you develop a program that leads to creative planning and visioning.
GDI has seasoned, expert facilitators with broad experience in engaging all participants, managing dominants, and resolving conflicts. They will keep your strategic planning session on time and on target, and will make sure that your session goals are met.
GDI will summarize the highlights of your strategic planning session, which will help you finalize your plans, goals, and objectives for future organizational development.
