Explore. Strategic planning is a complex endeavor. For many, the future is too uncertain, a strategy is too binding, or too difficult to define. Many of our clients come to us feeling overwhelmed by the thought of creating a strategy to drive their organization forward. CG Strategy will partner with you to complete a thorough environmental scan of your strengths, opportunities, aspirations, and desired results. Together, we define the purpose, time horizon, and goals to identify the strategic approach that will be most impactful for your specific circumstances. We break strategic planning down into digestible, adaptive pieces that can be refined as organizational needs evolve.

“I really had a blast developing our strategic plan because of CG Strategy’s support. You helped us engage in a way that let us bring everyone along in the development of the plan…. I learned so much and was able to finish that project and say that I really had a pulse on what the organization viewed as important.”
