Strategic Planning

Without an effective plan an organization or community cannot enjoy sustainable growth. We assist both in developing or enhancing strategies to guide short and long-term actions. Fourth Economy provides expertise every step of the way: benchmarking, data collection and analysis, asset mapping, stakeholder and public facilitation, and strategy development, and design.

Fourth Economy’s approach to strategic planning emphasizes inclusivity and transparency. At the heart of any planning process are the stakeholders, each offering a unique perspective and background critical to understanding the history and future of the organization or community. Fourth Economy begins all processes by advancing a few guiding questions that all clients, large and small, must address:

  1. what will establish your community or organization above all others;
  2. how do you currently define your competitive advantage; and
  3. what is the region’s unique value proposition?

Most importantly, we pride ourselves on developing actionable and measurable recommendations.
