Donovan Associates

Our company has been growing rapidly and we attribute our success, in part, to the effectiveness of the Proactive Strategic Business Planning program.

One challenge that often confronts growing organizations is an obscuring of the original direction that once drove success. Without a clear vision, the early, dynamic momentum and excitement is diminished.

Our structural, organizational development approach addresses, in four distinct phases, not only this natural downturn cycle; but also the infusion of generative, proactive thinking into the way people work. This approach translates directly into increased organizational learning and capacity - leading to newfound spirit and profitable growth - all driven by a rekindled passion to create outstanding results.

Phase 1 - Reality Check

Individual interviews and briefing sessions culminating in a comprehensive, working assessment of the present situation.

Phase 2 - Team Learning

Team learning sessions focused on the tools of the creative process. These include leadership, teamwork, strategic thinking, project management and personal health and fitness. The result is a holistic shift in thinking that brings about real change and growth.

Phase 3 - Proactive Strategic Business Planning

"Traditional" planning is reactive and limited to the current circumstances. Our consulting work orientation is accelerated and results-driven. You will invent a new, clear, shared direction; an achievable, winning business strategy; and a set of immediately actionable strategic objectives.

Phase 4 - Change Management

Most attempts to implement strategic plans fail without consulting support. We work side-by-side with you to ensure that you maintain the necessary momentum and stay focused on the results - in the face of your day-to-day responsibilities, and unanticipated circumstances. This ensures that the change process is timely, efficient, and system-wide.
