“They were incredibly thoughtful throughout the process, ensuring we ended with a plan that is not only a wonderful roadmap for our organization but also a plan that everyone from our key staff to the board of directors can embrace.”
Boldly Go was a wonderful partner to work with for the development of our strategic plan. They were incredibly thoughtful throughout the process, ensuring we ended with a plan that is not only a wonderful roadmap for our organization but also a plan that everyone from our key staff to the board of directors can embrace. Jeff and Jean were very intentional with their process and were able to conduct a thorough background and information gathering phase, helped us to identify the right stakeholders to engage and synthesize the information in a way that led to a plan that is aspirational and aligns with the goals of the organization. When critical organizational events caused us to pause our work and pivot in the process, Jeff and Jean helped navigate the challenge, wrestle with the situation, provided space to pause and they were able to jump back in with us as soon as possible. They kept us organized, on track and moving forward with an incredibly important project and truly felt like teammates and not outside consultants.
