Strategic Planning

Our experience working on strategic plans, business plans and capacity building has taught us the importance of connecting a vision to a concrete action plan with measurable outcomes. The Corporate F/A/C/T/S/ team utilizes a process to convert multifaceted ideas and priorities into an actionable business plan.  The process builds consensus among Board and staff on the direction the organization is headed.  We start by identifying the outcomes or desired change the organization wants to achieve.

Real estate development has become the corner stone of community revitalization.

We have developed financial tools and a Service Delivery System that is a ground-breaking solution to addressing vacant and blighted proerties.

Capacity Planning

We assist organizations in identifing the types of activities or strategies that will lead to identified outcomes.   We assess operations and ensure the capacity exists or can be built to deliver results. We also identify the costs to implement the plan and identify the resources necessary to finance specific strategies. Linking strategies to the identified outcomes or success metrics, allows an organization to measure progress and refine the strategies as needed.
