Strategic Planning

Every business should have a road map for the future. From startups to established businesses, a few employees to 500, a solid strategic plan is critical in driving your business forward. Through a series of meetings with key employees we can help you determine where you want to be and the best path to get there.

With dozens of planning projects under our belts, our team works with the owners / leaders of North Country organizations to envision the future, define measurable goals and assign accountability to move effectively in this direction.

The result is a simple, clearly defined and easily communicated plan that becomes a living document to guide decisions for your organization.


Benefits for your organization:

  • Aligns management and staff toward common goals.
  • If growth is your objective, an effective plan will define how best to achieve it.
  • By establishing progress goals and accountability, you better position your organization for success.

What recent clients have said about CITEC's Strategic Planning services:


"The successful development of a strategic plan is possible when a group of committed individuals is encouraged to openly engage in critical, yet necessary, dialogue. The resulting data needs to be refined and presented as information. It is very difficult for a group to complete this process without the objectivity of an external facilitator. 


"CITEC was certainly able to meet this need. CITEC provided the structure to collect the necessary data and the resources for reference. The personalities of the CITEC team members nicely balanced our need for both support and independence. They consistently promoted a positive environment so that participants felt comfortable in pushing each other to surpass what we thought possible."

"I had the pleasure of working with CITEC to develop and update Mountain Lake PBS’s mission, vision and values, and develop a new strategic plan.? The team from CITEC engaged 18 staff, board and community members and helped us develop a comprehensive plan that positions Mountain Lake PBS for the future. Over a 5 month period the group had some exciting and difficult discussions, and CITEC was there to keep us on track. Not only did CITEC's experts guide our discussions, they enthusiastically participated in the process and left us with a thoughtful plan that we have begun to implement.? CITEC was more than a facilitator for our group, and I highly recommend their service!"
