Strategic Planning
Strategic Planning is a comprehensive customized service which helps organizations plan for success. This may consist of reviewing or establishing a vision and mission statement. Assessments are completed to analyze the organization's current internal and external environment as well as its vision of the future. Next, the organization establishes goals, measurable objectives and strategies for how these measurable objectives can be accomplished. Retreats are often used along with additional processes that engage all stakeholders. The Aycock Group often creates a written strategic plan in collaboration with the organization.

The Aycock Group knows from experience that the strategic planning process is as important as the outcome.
  1. All relevant information needs to be shared, assumptions should be tested and the reasons for ideas need to be explained.

  2. All voices need to be heard and understood.

  3. All people in the entire organization need to be committed to the strategic plan. The Aycock Group does not believe that the typical term "Buy In" is enough or the right approach. "Buy in" implies that decisions are already made and others simply need to get on board. The Aycock Group instead believes in the term committed to. Being committed to means that people participate in the creation of, are invested in, and passionate about their outcomes.
