Strategy is about stretching limited resources to fit ambitious aspirations.

- C.K. Prahalad

Get ready to S-T-R-E-T-C-H your strategic planning efforts! The Prouty Project invites you to explore new and different ways of thinking. That takes getting out of your comfort zone as in the photo above – the Prouty Project’s 2007 S-T-R-E-T-C-H Expedition team that trekked through Chile’s Patagonia Region.

Take a quick “Prouty Pulse” on where your strategic planning may need to stretch:

  • Is your current process stale and in need of more innovative thinking?
  • Having trouble getting traction with strategic planning?
  • Does articulating the strategic direction of your organization seem impossible?
  • Overwhelmed and unsure how to discuss difficult business challenges?
  • Is last year’s strategic plan sitting on your shelf in a three-ring binder gathering dust?

To answer these and related questions, consider tapping into the Prouty Project’s strategic planning services to gain a more interactive approach for creating bigger goals, bolder strategies, and better collaboration:

Core Values/Mission/Vision

Set the 3 – 5 values that will propel your organization forward by engaging employees and revitalizing your culture. With over 20 years of experience, we can help you to lay the foundation for a mission and vision that guides leaders to meet financial and non-financial goals, and engage employees to trek in the same direction.

Strategic Planning

Tap into our business acumen to guide your process as your senior leadership team defines your path. Our Creative Think Tank and Strategic Leadership Lab are unique settings that allow your team to get away from the office and come to a place to think differently and broaden your perspectives. Find clarity and brevity in the resulting “flight plan” for execution: A one-page, four-column summary of market, product/service, people, and financial strategic priorities.

Strategic Plan Alignment

Get help in moving the business forward by setting direction, aligning the leadership team, and inspiring your senior executives to lead. Our clients return year after year to continue to advance their businesses. They appreciate our reality “gut” check approach to ensure the business has the resources, systems, and processes to really move it forward.

Red Teams

As a final piece of the strategic planning process, many clients choose to use a Red Team to critique and fine-tune the final document. A Red Team consists of 4 - 5 bright, creative, and experienced outside industry leaders tasked with making your strategy even better. This fire hose of feedback and wisdom takes place in our Creative Think Tank, in a 4 - 8 hour session filled with powerful input. Sign up for a Red Team and gain a fresh perspective to take your strategy to the next level. Are you "reddy" for a Red Team?
