Chances are, you've thought of strategic planning all wrong.
Creating effective roadmaps
Do your employees know your strategic initiatives?
What if everyone in your organization knew their role and took ownership of their part in achieving your goals and metrics? What if employees, program participants, leadership, donors, or even key stakeholders knew where the mission and the plan to get there? Strategic plans are no longer hidden documents filed away by company executives with the "hope" its goals are achieved.
Strategic plans should be shared. By everyone, in every way. Strategic plans should function as a roadmap for your organization to successfully reach its mission and vision.
Megaluno takes strategic planning seriously. We believe baby steps that set you up are better than big steps that set you back. Even the most well-intended organizations will fail if the proper steps aren't taken to ensure you're measuring and evaluating your progress and results.
Tired of strategic plans that look pretty but struggle to get off the ground? We have the solution for you.

Strategic Planning +Strengths-Based Team Development
We believe the best strategies are carried out by teams with members that know their strengths and how to aim their collective talents to achieve the company's vision and objectives. Strengths don't operate in a vacuum - differences are advantages. We'll help your team show up and take charge as a cohesive unit.
When teams are coached to operate in their strengths, it creates buy-in and ownership, which leads to increased employee engagement and successful strategy implementation. It's a win-win.
