Strategy & Planning

At the beginning of “Shadows In the Rain,” you can hear Sting in the background saying – “Wait! What key is this in?” – just before launching into the song.

Sometimes organizational leadership feels like that: not knowing the score (or even the key) before starting the performance. Worse, it can feel like you’re in the van headed for your next gig but you’re not sure which city, what venue, how well it’s been promoted, or whether your show is going to wow the fans.

You don’t have a roadmap and you may not have enough gas to get there.

Solid Ground will help you draw a roadmap for your future and support you in defining what you need to get there. We’re your partner and guide as you step back to reflect, assess opportunities and challenges facing your organization, and consider outside perspectives to inform your direction.

Solid Ground planning brings vision and action into alignment. Our work together results in:

  • Enhanced relationships with your most important partners, supporters, and other key stakeholders
  • Situation analysis that defines external trends and opportunities as well as internal capabilities and capacity to respond
  • Plan documents that summarize decisions on goals, priorities and strategies
  • Benchmarks for success
  • Tools and guidance for implementation
