Long-range planning is part of governance best practices, and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation hired Soukup Strategic Solutions to assist them in developing a five-year strategic plan. Soukup Strategic Solutions conducted a SWOT analysis, which included a comprehensive document review, confidential interviews with Board members, staff, and other key stakeholders, confidential surveys, departmental meetings with staff throughout the organization, review of community data, tours of the organization’s properties, and brainstorming with various members of the organization. Led by a small strategic planning committee, the Board and staff worked with Soukup Strategic Solutions to plan and implement a two-day retreat in which the leadership reviewed recent accomplishments, established a shared vision for the future, and set goals to achieve that vision. Measurable objectives, strategies, and action steps were developed to provide a blueprint for how the goals would be achieved to move the organization forward in the coming five years.
“A strategic retreat facilitated by Soukup Strategic Solutions (SSS) will change the course of your organization. I am confident making this recommendation because I have attended three SSS retreats and have witnessed the changes within the organizations almost immediately. I have also attended retreats facilitated by other people and there is no comparison. SSS is the premier nonprofit consulting business.
The extensive pre-retreat phase enabled us to begin the actual strategic retreat by reviewing the comprehensive critical information gathered about our organization. Information gathering and analysis is comprehensive.
At the actual retreat, we reviewed the SWOT analysis, set measurable goals and objectives, and determined ways to reach these goals. Our board remains energized and motivated and has been moving forward with determination and passion to achieve our goals. This is thanks to a facilitation process that was well-organized, and laser focused.
SSS staff members are professional, knowledgeable, accessible and will take an organization to a higher level of productivity and an improved future.”
