Missions and purpose rarely change but the world around us shifts. That’s why we look at strategic plans to guide decision-making and set priorities for three to five years. DTS teams create strategy that is both flexible and scalable to help drive long-term fiscal health, measurable results, and organizational evolution.
DTS believes strongly in strategic plans to encompass every action, initiative and dollar spent. Our principals and employees have in-depth experience in all facets of strategic planning and organization advancement, with a solid track record of providing strategic advice, plans and solutions for a wide range of public- and private-sector organizations. We follow an industry-leading strategic planning process and work closely with client teams, understanding that buy-in at all levels is essential to successful implementation.
Strategic planning can:
- Clarify organizational goals and direction
- Reaffirm and energize your commitment to achieving goals
- Solve complex problems
- Identify and address roadblocks
- Implement organizational change
- Strengthen employee and stakeholder connections to the organization and goals
Plans and initiatives are only effective when the right people know, understand, and implement them. DTS communications consultants can help evaluate your stakeholder groups and audiences, craft the right messages and distribution plans, and execute the plan to optimize awareness and action.
In order for positive change to occur, people, process and technology need to change too. DTS plans for and manages organizational shift, new processes and technology, and organizational evolution with multiple methodologies and proven strategies, including industry best practices and the ADKAR model, to ensure successful implementation and sustainment:
Awareness of the business reasons for change
Desire to engage and participate in the change
Knowledge about how to change
Ability to realize or implement the change at the required performance level
Reinforcement to ensure change stick
Missions rarely change but adjusting strategy allows your organization to be agile and responsive in addressing changes in your environment.
