Non-profit organizations must evolve and advance in today’s swiftly changing environment. DBD Group can help your organization address short-term and long-term goals through our intentional processes to make strategic decisions and plans.
In times of rapid change, new contexts, community needs, resources and/or priorities may require you to adjust your strategic plan goals and timelines. A reboot is a practical, efficient approach to revisit a recent or current plan. DBD Group will work with you to refine a vision for impact, check in your current operating model, realign high-level strategies, and identify and implement any changes needed.
Strategic planning is a must in times of significant change. DBD’s comprehensive process can help you develop a new strategic plan. The process will help you build strategic thinking capacity and navigate a changing climate and increasing demands. We can help you assess the landscape, identify trends and envision the impact you want to create. We will help you define what you do best, outline threats and opportunities, and identify strategies and success measures to get where you want to go. Most important, we will engage your board and staff in a powerfully facilitated process so they rally to implement your vision.
"We came to DBD with an idea in mind for our strategic planning process, but Kellie, Jason and the DBD team have far exceeded our expectations. From their ability to engage the participants - even virtually - to stay true to a timeline, and articulate our organization's unique road map ahead, we have been incredibly pleased with the start-to-finish DBD experience." - Jeff Rust, Higher Ground Board Chair
