Raftelis works collaboratively with local governments and utilities to develop strategic plans that are customized for their specific context. We do this by involving employees, governing bodies, and stakeholders to create a plan that is engaging, relevant, and practical to allow your leadership to prioritize your community’s needs and track progress in meeting your objectives.
A Broad and Deep Approach
A successful strategic planning process helps your organization have:
- Well-defined strategies directed toward achieving goals
- A committed team of employees working toward a shared vision
- Enhanced engagement from your governing body
- An effective tool for enhanced communication with external stakeholders
- Predictable performance reflecting achievement of measurable objectives
Our strategic planning approach includes a focus on engaging stakeholders early through interviews, focus groups, workshops, retreats, and facilitated meetings to drive the planning process and to develop relevant goals and objectives that meet the needs of your community and organization. Our approach is highly customizable and builds on professional best practices including goal and strategy identification and a focus on plan implementation.
From Plan to Action
Even the most in-depth and skillfully developed strategic plan will fall short of success if the plan sits on a shelf. Raftelis works with local governments and utilities after the development of the plan to ensure successful implementation on a realistic timeline. We also provide tools to track progress as the objectives and strategies of the plan come to fruition.
