Strategy & Planning

How much social impact could you have if you were proactive about aligning your people around a shared vision?

We’ve partnered with 80+ organizations to build strong and resilient strategic plans and align internal stakeholders  to accomplish their vision. Ultimately, we act as thought partners in navigating the four stages of planned growth:

  • Discovery - our first step is building trust and getting to know the people in your organization, your particular culture and the capacity you have available for change.
  • Design - we work with you to design the best process to meet your needs for making critical decisions about your future direction.
  • Discernment - change involves envisioning a strong future and making the hard choices that get you there - we facilitate strong choice making about future strategy.
  • Destiny - we help you build your capacity to mobilize resources to accomplish your vision 

Through a variety of interventions, from assessing the systems you have in place, to co-creating new approaches based on your organization’s needs and recommending adjustments to build stronger management practices, PENN Creative Strategy helps organizations unlock their full potential.
