Gagnon Associates

Management & Organizational Consulting

strategic planning consultants limited


Seasoned strategic planning consulting services.

Our Associates are seasoned strategic planning consultants who deliver highly experienced strategic planning consulting services.  We can help you and your executive team develop an integrated strategic plan that builds clarity and consensus among you on a critical game-plan for the future success of your business.  Just as importantly, our team-based approach to strategic plan development orchestrates the involvement of your key stakeholders in a way that optimizes your chances for successful plan implementation.  And as any executive leader knows, a strategic plan is only as good as your ability to  execute  it effectively.

Our Proven Approach to Strategic Plan Development & Implementation Services

“. . . your business focus to Strategic Planning . . . and the advance preparation you demand of yourselves make planning sessions the most productive I have ever experienced in my career.” . . . read more

In the case of a business that is developing a strategic plan for the first time or one whose existing plan requires a completely fresh take, the process described here has delivered solidly for many of our clients over many years.  (Please see what our clients say, below.)

The cornerstones of our successful Team-Based Strategic Planning Process are:

  • an open, candid, fact-based assessment of a company’s current and prospective operating environment
  • customized, structured planning Conferences, carefully designed and facilitated by Gagnon Associates consultants, against concrete outcome goals
  • a parallel, “Offline,” Feedback/Input Process, “interleaved” with planning Conferences, that enables representatives of a company’s key stakeholder groups to review and influence in-process planning material, as well as to provide fresh, “front-end” inputs to planning Conference discussions and deliberations.

This approach facilitates broader organizational involvement in the kind of high-level planning that is often the exclusive purview of only senior-most executives.

Since commitment and ownership are always a function of involvement, our Team-Based Strategic Planning Process not only provides a leadership team with the data, setting, process and support they need to achieve alignment among themselves, it also ensures the kind of stakeholder involvement that’s needed to build broader ownership for the final plan and commitment to its ultimate implementation.

Strategic Planning Model

Getting Started:  Strategic Plan Development

The “Strategic Planning Model,” shown here, lays out our most comprehensive Team-Based Strategic Planning Process at a glance.

It begins with:

  • Confidential Executive Interviews of the Planning Team members, conducted by the Gagnon Associates consultant who will be leading the Strategic Planning Process,
  • macro business environment,
  • major competitors,
  • financial and organizational health.

This contextual material, as well as a thorough SWOTS analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) serves to lay the factual foundation upon which all subsequent planning Conference deliberations are based.

The Strategic Planning Conferences

The Planning Conferences represent the heart of the Team-Based Strategic Planning Process.  A configuration of three, two-day sessions, taking place over as little as three months, has proven suitable for many clients, but, again, our experience enables us to customize this schedule, as required, to suit client needs.

The accompanying “Architecture” depicts the key strategic questions the Planning Team works through in the course of the Conferences and the sequence in which they confront these questions.

Strategic Planning Architecture Chart

  • unbiased management of the content agenda and the deliberative process,
  • the CEO’s interaction as a full participant vs. obligatory “meeting leader”
  • a healthy confrontation of critical, yet sometimes sensitive, issues identified in Executive Interviews and surfaced anonymously and “safely” by the consultant/facilitator,
  • high-productivity sessions based on a proven approach vs. “making it up as you go along.”

“Offline” Organizational Feedback/Input Process

Between the formal Planning Conferences, members of the Planning Team serve as “Task Team” Leaders.  Following a process provided by Gagnon Associates, “Task Team” Leaders meet with representatives from the enterprise’s broader constituencies to:

  • review and prepare feedback on previous Conference draft outputs and outcomes and
  • provide input to the strategic questions to be addressed in subsequent Conferences.

“Task Team” Leaders prepare this “Offline” material for presentation and discussion at the Planning Conferences, thus ensuring substantive stakeholder input to the Strategic Planning Process.

This in-process involvement before a strategic plan is final builds awareness and ownership for the planning process itself and maximizes the chances for broader organizational “buy-in” for the strategic plan that results.  In terms of effective implementation, this approach provides a leadership team with far better chances of gaining traction for new direction than if, as is so often the case, their strategic plan had been “hatched” privately behind closed doors.  In this case, the likelihood of a successful strategic plan implementation is much stronger.

“We had just completed a major acquisition in Europe that almost doubled the size of the Company. We were in the beginning of the process of not only combining our businesses – one in North America and the other in Europe – but, since the entire senior management team of the European business stayed on to continue to run the business, we also needed to meld together two very different cultures, while determining how to create value. "Of importance to me as CEO was the opportunity that the Strategic Planning Process provided for this new, global senior management team to work together and become more comfortable with each other. By the end of our last planning session, each of the executives who participated truly believed they had played an important role in developing our new Strategic Plan and that their voice had been heard and respected.

What are the steps in LRI’s strategic planning process?

1) We help you look objectively at the key trends and factors affecting your organization’s position and help you assess where the opportunities are to achieve greater impact.

This is typically where a trends analysis, or a S.W.O.C. analysis comes in handy, looking at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges facing the organization. As issues are identified, we keep focused on: What data do we have and what does it tell us? How significant is this problem relative to your competitors or peers? What is within your power to control?

2) We help you envision different scenarios for the future and make decisions about the future you want to build toward.

Scenario thinking enables leadership teams to think creatively about different avenues for the organization. What are ways to grow? How could you strengthen your connections to suppliers and customers? What ultimate outcomes are you trying to achieve? What would success look like in one year? In three years? How would you measure success? These are all good questions to grapple with as you envision the future.

3) Once the vision is clear, we help leadership teams translate the vision into decisions about goals, objectives, strategies and resources. This is when strategic thinking becomes a strategic plan.

Once the vision is clear, we facilitate discussions that help our clients define specific goals and objectives, along with strategies for how to achieve those goals and objectives, how resources will be applied to achieve those goals – and how to measure whether the intended outcomes are being achieved. Our team will translate that framework into a clearly written, well-structured strategic plan.

4) We help teams develop action plans – and monitor the ongoing progress toward the plan’s goals.

Once the strategic plan is finalized, action planning should occur within the organization. We can facilitate the development of action plans that tie directly to the strategic plan’s larger goals and objectives. We can also facilitate the ongoing monitoring process, following up on action steps, and determining whether your plan is achieving the intended results. This is often where a strategic planning process falters – and why the commitment to track the plan on an ongoing basis – and adjust course as needed – is so important.

Strategic Planning Consultants: Your Complete Guide

Guide to strategic planning consultants

If your organization is preparing for a strategic planning process, you’ve likely heard the advice to find a great strategic planning consultant.

But finding that great consultant is often easier said than done. While there are plenty of strategic planning consultants out there, the trick is finding one that’s right for your unique organization.

In this article we cover:

Strategic Planning Basics

The role of a strategic planning consultant.

  • How to Choose a Strategic Planning Consultant , including services and fees
  • Working Effectively with Your Consultant
  • What to Expect Once Your Strategic Plan is Completed

Before you start searching for a strategic planning consultant, it’s worth reviewing what strategic planning actually is, why it matters, and the consultant’s role.

What is strategic planning?

Strategic planning is a structured process to guide an organization in creating, documenting and committing to a vision for the future, including the strategies, goals, objectives and activities that will bring that vision to life.

A strategic planning process culminates in the creation of a strategic plan. So, what is a strategic plan?

A strategic plan is a written roadmap for where an organization is going, how it will get there, and specific ways to determine if the organization has “arrived” at the destination. Through a strategic planning process, organizations might clarify their vision for the coming 3, 5, 10, or more years. However measurable goals and actions plans typically cover a shorter 3-5-year period.

While many organizations and consultants focus their energy on the written document, strategic planning is more than a simple product. A written plan can easily be shoved in a drawer or left on a shelf. And it often is. According to studies, over 60% of strategic plans never make it to full implementation .

That’s why it’s important to focus on strategic planning as a process.

Strategic planning is a process, not a product.

The process of bringing together an organization’s leadership and stakeholders to build a shared vision for the future is arguably the most important part of strategic planning.

What is a strategic plan? A strategic plan is a written roadmap for where an organization is going, how it will get there, and specific ways to determine if an organization has "arrived" at the destination.

Why is strategic planning important?

Without a strategic plan, organizations and their leaders often struggle to prioritize. Daily, leaders make choices about programs, staff, infrastructure, technology, and more. Each choice carries real financial consequences. Without a strategic plan to guide decision-making, it’s easy to spend precious staff and financial resources on ineffective work that doesn’t truly advance your mission.

Another common problem is mission drift or mission creep —where organizations take on projects and programs that distract from, rather than contribute to, core missions. We often see this accompanied by burnout, low staff morale and high turnover. It can also affect fundraising and financial stability.

If an organization’s leader doesn’t know where they’re going, how can they expect staff, board, volunteers and donors to follow?

Luckily, the strategic planning process can yield important benefits for your organization. The process helps you:

  • Build consensus across your board and staff leadership about your organization’s direction, programmatic and financial priorities, and measures for success. This creates valuable buy-in that will keep your team focused and supportive through the inevitable ups and downs.
  • Align your entire organization around a shared vision for the future—one that is clear, concise, and motivating. Research shows that 95% of employees don’t understand their company’s strategy . Getting your full team on the same page can be transformative.
  • Increase your impact and better leverage your resources. You’ll set clear and measurable organizational goals and gain the tools to evaluate progress in real-time. You can identify what’s working and what isn’t—and course correct to better use precious financial and staff resources.
  • Kick-start strategic decision making —a decision-making process that is guided by long-term objectives and shared values. Your strategic plan becomes your guidepost for strategic decision-making, enabling you to identify the choices that advance your vision, mission, and values rather than work against them.

Are you ready to build a sustainable, impactful organization?

What does a strategic planning consultant do?

A strategic planning consultant oversees an organization’s strategic planning process, manages stakeholder participation and ensures successful execution. This typically includes developing a workplan and timeline, assisting with stakeholder feedback processes, facilitating strategic planning sessions or retreats, facilitating consensus building, and preparing a final written strategic plan.

A strategic planning consultant does the hard work of ensuring your planning process stays on track and is a success.

A consultant may also provide support for strategic plan implementation. This could include an overarching implementation plan and individual plans by department.

The value of a facilitated strategic planning process

While some organizations undertake strategic planning on their own, most choose to use an outside strategic planning consultant or facilitator.

Creating a strategic plan on your own may initially seem like a cost-saving measure. But it can ultimately cost your organization more. Here’s how:

  • Strategic planning requires time and investment from your senior board and staff leadership . And those hours translate to dollars. Your most highly paid staff members will inevitably spend time on the mechanics of your planning process rather than focusing on the substance of your organization’s strategy. When your CEO is spending time planning agendas or developing stakeholder questions, there are massive opportunity costs. Consultants can save CEOs time and money by taking the guesswork out of the process, simplifying the process, streamlining pre-planning processes, holding team members accountable, and more.
  • Strategic planning is a great antidote to groupthink in both nonprofit and for-profit organizations . But only if you bring in an outside facilitator. Otherwise, power dynamics may compromise your strategy process . Even senior staff members who aren’t the CEO may be less inclined to share fresh and potentially unpopular (with the CEO) input. A skilled consultant can ensure that everyone participates equally. Your facilitator creates spaces where tough feedback is welcomed rather than shut down.
  • Strategic planning requires building consensus . This can be hard if your board, staff, and other stakeholders have wildly different ideas about the direction of your organization. If you can’t move your planning group toward consensus, you risk never completing the planning process. Or, if you decide to railroad a plan through, your team won’t benefit from the buy-in that results from creating a shared vision. Your consultant will bring years of experience facilitating consensus-building while also being seen as a neutral agent .

Because of these factors, most organizations choose to work with a strategic planning consultant. This way, your board and staff leadership can focus on strategy while your consultant handles the logistics.

How To Choose a Strategic Planning Consultant

Unless you’ve worked with and liked a particular strategic planning consulting firm, you’re going to need to create a strategic planning RFP or request for proposals. Ideally, you’ll want to interview and compare proposals from at least two to three strategic planning consults.

What to look for in a strategic planning consulting firm

Generally, you will conduct an initial call with each strategic planning consulting firm to share more about your organization and goals for strategic planning. After the call, the consultant will prepare a proposal and scope for your consideration.

As you evaluate strategic planning consulting firms, you’ll want to consider:

  • Experience: Look for a consultant who has previously facilitated strategic planning processes with successful results. When it comes to consultants, there is often a sweet spot where a consultant is highly experienced—having worked with dozens of similar clients—but still committed to customizing the process for your organization. You don’t want to end up with a cookie cutter strategic planning experience that never gets below the surface.
  • Familiarity with organizations like yours: Make sure your consultant is at least familiar with your sector. For example, a mid-sized nonprofit direct service organization vs a Fortune 500 company will have very different internal and external dynamics. Also consider whether the consultant has worked with organizations of similar size, budget, and development or growth stage. If you’re a nonprofit organization, consider seeking out a consultant who specializes in nonprofit strategic planning .
  • Proposed scope: The project scope a consultant provides you will tell you a lot about their process, qualifications, and professionalism. There should be a detailed description of the full strategic planning process, including timelines and outputs. When evaluating a proposal, be sure you understand: What does the consultant’s process encompass? How long does their process take? What is the expected time commitment from your team? Make sure roles and responsibilities are clearly spelled out. For example, what elements will be included in the written strategic plan? Will there be a or other similar process conducted?
  • Strategic planning models used: There are dozens of strategic planning models and tools . Ask consultants to explain which method or methods they are proposing to use, why they recommend it or your organization, and whether it is evidence-based. For example, when discussing strategic planning models, you might hear terms like the Classic Model, Issue-based Model, Technology of Participation, SWOT Analysis, or Environmental Scan . Your strategic planning consultant should be able to clearly describe their proposed method, including the process, outcome, and approach to stakeholder engagement. If you’re interviewing multiple consultants, the number of models and terms can become overwhelming. We designed our guide to the Basics of Strategic Planning Models to help.
  • Track record: It’s best practice to ask for references—previous clients who can speak to the consultant’s work and approach. If a consultant isn’t willing to provide references, consider this a red flag.
  • Fees: All services, fees, and payment schedules should be outlined in the proposed scope. When conducting a time intensive effort like strategic planning, expect to pay a deposit up-front before work begins.

How much does a strategic planning process cost?

Strategic planning consultant fees vary widely. If you search online, you’ll find strategic planning consultant fees ranging from $5,000 up to $80,000 or more!

Which is why it’s important to understand your needs and budget up front. Consider creating a budget range and sharing that with consultants during your initial conversation. If you speak to several consultants, and most can’t work within your budget, you may need to reassess your budget and expectations.

Several factors can affect cost.

  • A consultant’s experience and size of firm. Smaller consulting firms may have lower fees, while you can expect large and well-established firms to cost more. Note the size of the firm isn’t necessarily an indicator of the quality of the process.
  • A bare-bones, cookie-cutter service vs a comprehensive, tailored process. While a bare-bones process may be tempting, keep in mind that your leadership will be doing more of the work (vs the strategy).
  • The size and complexity of your organization. A large organization with multiple affiliates in multiple cities, and a history of past mergers, will require a more complex and time-intensive strategic planning process than a smaller organization with a singular mission.

Consultants may also include additional fees for add-on services like:

  • Travel and supplies
  • Extensive stakeholder interviews or custom surveys
  • Implementation planning services
  • Department-level planning services
  • Follow-up support and ongoing services (quarterly reviews, annual reviews, etc.)

Strategic planning is usually a significant investment for an organization—both in cost and in outcome. After spending valuable time and money, you don’t want to end up with a strategic plan that doesn’t work for your organization. Which is why making sure you find the right consultant, rather than just the cheapest, is so important.

10 questions to ask a strategic planning consulting firm

As you review proposals from strategic planning consultants, or hold follow up conversations, you’ll want to ask a standard set of questions that probe below the surface. For example:

  • How will you tailor the strategic planning process for our organization?
  • How many organizations in my sector (and/or size, growth stage, etc.) have you worked with before? What are some of the lessons you’ve learned from that work and the best practices you’ve created?
  • How would you describe your facilitation style?
  • How do you approach building consensus?
  • How do you help clients navigate conflicts?
  • What do we, as organizational leaders, need to do to be successful in our strategic planning process?
  • What are the most common challenges you’ve seen organizations struggle with during the strategic planning process?
  • If you encounter strategic issues outside of your expertise, how will you handle that?
  • Once the strategic plan is ready, what support will be available for implementation? If needed, do you provide add-on services for the implementation process?
  • How often do you recommend that we consult our strategic plan? Under what conditions should it be updated or revised?

Working With a Strategic Planning Consultant

Now that you’ve vetted and selected your strategic planning consultant, it’s time to get to work!

What are the steps in a strategic planning process?

Generally, a strategic planning process includes at least three steps:

1) Preparation. This includes creating a work plan and timeline, setting roles and expectations, gathering and analyzing stakeholder input, conducting an organizational assessment to identify internal and external challenges and opportunities, and ensuring that the organization’s vision and mission are clear.

2) Strategic planning sessions or retreat. Your strategic planning consultant will facilitate one or more intensive strategy sessions with your board and staff leadership, and any other stakeholders you’ve agreed to include. This is where the hard work of building consensus and alignment truly happens.

3) Strategic plan creation. The final stage of your strategic planning process is preparing and finalizing your written strategic plan. Your plan could take different forms, such as a written report and a detailed slide deck. This is the part of the process where ensuring internal awareness, alignment, and buy-in across your organization is especially important. Make sure you work with your consultant on a thoughtful roll out strategy .

You will likely see several variations of this process among consultants. But be sure that at least these three basic elements are included.

While implementation can make or break a strategic plan, it’s generally not considered part of a strategic planning consulting scope or cost.

When to lead and when to follow

Sometimes we see organizational leaders start a strategic planning process thinking they already know the ultimate outcome. If you’re a CEO, of course, you should have a clear vision of where your organization is going. But it’s just as important to be open to new insights through the process of strategic planning.

We encourage organizational leaders to see themselves as participants in, rather than drivers of, the strategic planning process.

You’ve invested a lot of time, effort and resources in choosing your strategic planning consultant. Now it’s time to trust them. Bring your best ideas and be ready to listen to others. The magic of strategic planning is the opportunity to make unexpected connections, find creative new insights , and have plenty of “ah-ha” moments with your team.

If your strategic planning consulting firm is a bad fit

However, there is one moment where a CEO or Executive Director should step back into the driver’s seat: if your strategic planning consultant simply isn’t a good fit.

This does happen occasionally, and it can be challenging to navigate. Perhaps the consultant’s style is a mismatch. Maybe the consultant doesn’t know as much about your sector or challenges as expected. Regardless of the cause, organizational leaders owe it to themselves, their organizations, and their strategic planning consultant to call a pause.

Take a step back and have a conversation with your strategic planning consultant. Make sure your consultant’s primary point of contact is also included in this conversation. Frequently changing points of contact can create an impossible-to-navigate situation for consultants.

During your step-back conversation, share specific feedback, including concrete examples, about what isn’t working. Be open to discussing ways to get the engagement back on track. If it’s truly a wrong fit, your contract should spell out terms, conditions, and fees for ending the engagement.

Your Strategic Plan is Ready…Now What? 

Congratulations, you have completed your strategic planning process! You’ve worked with a skilled consultant to prepare a concise written strategic plan that you’re certain will position your organization for success.

Now it’s time to implement your strategic plan. Which means the work has only just begun…

How to roll out a strategic plan

If your organization has more than 20 employees, it’s likely some may know little about the strategic planning process your leadership team has gone through. Let’s be honest, even if you’ve briefed all-staff meetings, given managers talking points, and shared updates over email, many people probably haven’t paid attention. This is absolutely normal.

Which is why developing a thoughtful roll out strategy for your strategic plan is so important.

When talking to staff, board, volunteers, donors, and other stakeholders about your strategic plan:

  • Break out the toplines in easy-to-digest formats. For example, you could take your three-year goals and create a graphic, a slide deck, and a brief email.
  • Show your own authentic enthusiasm. If you’re a CEO or Executive Director and you’re not excited about your strategic plan, how can you expect your team to be? Ideally, you should wrap up the strategic planning process energized, engaged, and eager for the future. Make sure your staff, board, and stakeholders see that enthusiasm!
  • Be upfront about how the plan will affect different stakeholder groups. Staff may be especially concerned about how their jobs will be affected. For example, if you’re restructuring a program unit—or adding a new one—how will current staff positions change?
  • Create space for questions and answers. Depending on the size of your organization, this could take place in one-on-one check-ins, department meetings, all-staff meetings or—ideally—all of these.
  • Prepare for hard questions. Your strategic planning consultant should have guided you in doing the work to bring your entire team along and build buy-in. But even so, you may still encounter hard questions. Be ready by preparing FAQs or even sending a survey to gather insights on what people are most worried about and most excited about.

Operationalizing a strategic plan

Finally, it’s time to move from strategy to action. Operationalizing a strategic plan isn’t a one and done activity. Implementation lasts the life of the plan. Consider:

  • How will each department or program unit be affected? What goals is each department responsible for? If this adds work to a department, will other activities be deprioritized, or will capacity be added?
  • How many new hires will you be making? Do you have internal recruitment and HR capacity, or will you need to work with a recruiting firm? How will onboarding be handled?
  • How will you pay for new costs? If you’re a nonprofit, this means honing your fundraising strategy.
  • How will implementation decisions be made? Leaders will face constant small decisions throughout the implementation process. Is your leadership team committed to using your strategic plan as a starting point for strategic decision-making?

These questions are only the beginning.

Operationalizing a strategic plan is a major undertaking. It’s also not included in a general strategic planning scope. So you may want to consider finding a strategic planning consultant who can also help create implementation plans.

How often should a company revise its strategic plan?

Organizations should be using their strategic plan like a roadmap. That means every time you get in the car, you look at your map to make sure you know where you are and where you’re going.

Organizationally, we recommend that board and staff leadership review progress toward strategic plan goals and benchmarks on a quarterly basis (at minimum twice per year). This gives you the chance to keep your strategic vision front and center for everyone. It also enables you to learn, evaluate, and course-correct in real time.

Many strategic plans generally cover 3-5 years. So you should start thinking about the next strategic planning process during the budgeting time frame before your current plan expires. Realistically, for a new strategic planning process, most organizations take 9-12 months to explore budget options, establish scope, and secure consultants.

In some cases, you may find that your implementation has veered wildly from your original plan. If that’s the case, you probably want to invest in a revision process. At the point where your strategic plan no longer makes sense for your organization , it’s time to get a new one.

Strategic planning is the process an organisation will use to define its strategy, or direction and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. Executed by our strategic planners as we like to call them our “Strategists”, this involves key stakeholders in their analysis of your organisation and its relationship to the environment in which it competes. Many companies achieve success, however they then flounder; for the simple reason that these companies have not defined a clear Roadmap and aligned this to organisational strategy. Strategy can be planned (intended) or can be observed as a pattern of activity (emergent) as the organisation adapts to its environment. Strategy includes processes of formulation and implementation; strategic planning with a transparent Roadmap ensures coordination of both.

An MBA is a two-year program that includes coursework in finance, accounting, marketing and management.

Strategic thinking: Strategic thinking is the ability to see the big picture and understand how individual actions can affect the organization’s goals. Strategic planning consultants use their strategic thinking skills to create plans that can help companies achieve their objectives.

Business acumen: Business acumen refers to a person’s ability to understand the needs of a business and how to meet them. Strategic planning consultants use their business acumen to create plans that help businesses grow and meet their goals.

Strategic planning consultants typically work in an office environment, although they may travel to meet with clients. They usually work regular business hours, although they may occasionally work overtime to meet deadlines.

Here are three trends influencing how strategic planning consultants work. Strategic planning consultants will need to stay up-to-date on these developments to keep their skills relevant and maintain a competitive advantage in the workplace.

The Need for More Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is becoming increasingly important in today’s business world, as companies are realizing the need to have a clear vision of where they are going and how they are going to get there. This means that strategic planning consultants will be in high demand, as they can help businesses develop a strategic plan that is tailored to their specific needs.

In order to be successful in this field, strategic planning consultants will need to be able to work with a variety of different stakeholders and understand their needs. They will also need to be able to communicate the benefits of strategic planning to other members of the company.

The Emergence of Digital Transformation

The emergence of digital transformation is a trend that is quickly changing the way businesses operate. As technology advances, businesses are finding new ways to utilize digital tools in order to improve efficiency and productivity.

Strategic planning consultants can capitalize on this trend by developing expertise in digital transformation strategies. This includes understanding how to use technology to streamline operations, as well as knowing which technologies are worth investing in.

A Greater Focus on Risk Management

Risk management is an essential part of any business, but it has become even more important in recent years as businesses have become more reliant on technology.

As strategic planning consultants, you can capitalize on this trend by becoming an expert in risk management. This will allow you to help your clients identify and mitigate potential risks before they become problems. In addition, you can also help them to create a disaster recovery plan in case something does go wrong.

A strategic planning consultant career can be a great way to use your business skills in a new and exciting way. As a strategic planning consultant, you’ll work with companies of all sizes to help them develop and implement effective strategies that will allow them to reach their goals.

To be successful in this role, you’ll need to have strong business acumen, be able to think strategically, and be able to see the big picture. You’ll also need to be able to work well with people from all levels of an organization, as well as have excellent communication skills.

Part of the Governance and Public Management book series (GPM)

This chapter is meant to highlight the peculiarities of strategic planning in the Russian Federation. The great variety of cultures and traditions of social and economic conditions of Russian regions is compensated by the standardization of Federal legislation on strategic planning and strict requirements about the structure of regional and municipal strategy as well as procedures of strategy preparation and realization.

This situation turns strategic planning in the Russian Federation into a stratified and bulky bureaucratic process, with elements of methodical arbitrariness and an abundance of control and supervising functions. At the municipal level, additional difficulties of strategic planning are caused by a dependence on subsidies of most municipalities from federal and regional funds that are allocated “from above”, by a multilevel system of municipal management. Recently the process of strategic planning is resulting in uneven resource allocation and considerable financing deficit at the lowest levels (rural settlements). Nevertheless, strategic planning in the Russian Federation in general induces municipalities to think more carefully about their core purposes and tasks to find the proper proportion of allocated resources and results of their use.

Law “On the General Principles of Organization of Local Self-Governance in the Russian Federation.”

The Russian constitutional crisis of 1993, 1995 Parliamentary elections and 1996 Presidential elections, the economic default of 1998 and Yeltsin’s renunciation and early elections of the Russian President in 2000.

Protest movements have been far weaker compared to the past. For example, compare Bolotnaya square protests in 2012 with recent presidential election results with the winner margin being enormous −76% versus 12%.

For a detailed description of present conditions of the regulatory legal base of strategic planning in the Russian Federation, including the list of regulations and the recommendation about improvement of their structure and application, see Klimenko et al. ( 2015 ).

http://gasu.gov.ru/stratdocuments?docLevel=1&docLevel=102&docLevel=101&docType=102&docType=202 (date of the access—July 30, 2017). It is interesting to note that upon review of annual data (for August 12, 2016), the total number of strategic planning documents for regions one year ago (territorial subjects of the Russian Federation) was “only” 603 regional and 6900 municipal strategic document`s (see Klimenko et al. 2016 ). Thus, for last year the “explosive” growth and expansion of the number of strategic municipal planning documents in Russia is well observed. The reason for this phenomenon is an interesting area for further research.

Barabashev and Klimenko ( 2017 ) describe the two phases of reform, their components, actors, social and political conditions and the most important moments of interaction of both reforms.

As it was mentioned earlier, donor regions are able to support both their own programs and additional programs of recipient regions, through a redistribution process done by the Federal Government transfers.
