MACPA "Strategic Plan on a Page" developed using BLI's i2a: Insights to Action Strategic Planning Process. This helps capture the critical elements of the strategic plan in a way that people can easily grasp.

It is used for engagement and alignment throughout the organization and ultimately inspires action!

This is what differentiates our i2a: Strategic Planning process - our process starts where strategic planning ends. In the "Inspire to Act" phase, we work to design ways to engage the entire organization with powerful communication tools designed to get buy-in and understanding. The result is more discretionary effort in executing the strategic plan.
