True Compass Strategies Approach to Strategic Planning


Strategic planning is one of the most important things an organization can do — but it is also one that most people tend to avoid. Why? It seems daunting and people don’t even know where to begin.

Over the years, working with a number of non-profit and organizational clients, we’ve developed a six step approach that guides you through the development and implementation of a strategic plan. While there is no perfect one size fits all approach, these steps are the surest way to start out on a path of success.

The steps involved in the True Compass Strategies planning process are:

1. Prepare
2. Listen
3. Vision
4. Plan
5. Execute
6. Evaluate

You can also add in additional materials to it, including market analysis, feedback and survey results, budget, etc.
