“Our Board of Directors and I were 100% pleased with Suzanne’s leadership of our strategic planning process. Her leadership before, during and after our strategic planning sessions had a profound impact on the quality of our team’s discussions, discovery, written plan and process for measuring ongoing progress. She is professional, smart, insightful and passionate about social impact. I never want to do strategic planning with anyone but Suzanne!”

Why do strategic plans never get used? While there are numerous books and websites on strategic planning, the process of developing a plan can seem cookie-cutter and become overcomplicated very quickly. In addition, once the strategic plan is developed, consultants leave strategic planning projects without an action and change management plan to assist with turning the ideas into action. Social Impact Architects has a time-tested approach to developing strategic plans for the social sector that actively engages community partners, includes market analysis, reviews financials against best practices, maps the environment, provides customized solutions and develops future scenarios. We also pair the plan with a dashboard to track progress and ensure accountability.
