Strategy & Planning
Almond Tree Strategic Consulting helps charities and social enterprises to develop their strategic plans and prepare business plans. We can also help you with implementation planning.
Strategy and Planning
Every organisation needs a strategy; to know how you plan to develop in the future. What are your aims and objectives, the services you’ll provide, the income/funding you’ll need and how you’ll deploy your resources and assets? Equally you’ll need to be clear about what you won’t do or what you might stop doing in the future.
getting the right strategy
We can support to identify and explore your options, drawing out what you already know, sharing ideas from other similar (and not so similar) contexts and challenging your preconceptions.
Once you are clear about your strategy, we can help you prepare your business plan. Our approach is that of collaborator and critical friend. We see business planning as more of a process of exploration and agreement than the production of a weighty document.
We can also help you develop detailed implementation plans to accompany these top-level plans and we can even help you to project manage their delivery.
All strategies and plans need to be practical and to communicate what you intend to do in a concise and compelling way. This is why the documents we produce are short and clear, while covering everything you need.
