Strategic Planning

Our approach is customized to your specific goals, so we’ll work closely with you to understand your business and identify areas for improvement.

What is Strategic Planning?

Strategic planning involves the process by which an organization’s leaders establish a clear vision for the future and determine their objectives and goals. A solid plan, agreed to by everyone engaged in the process, not only sets the stage for moving toward the future but is used as a basis for making decisions and taking actions that shape and guide the organization’s future. Strategic Planning learns from the past, examines the present, and builds a path toward a successful future.

Our Process

The key to successful strategic planning is an effective foundation. Our custom and technology-driven approach is designed to help you get the best possible plan to propel you to your envisioned future.

  • Past Accomplishments
  • Learnings
  • Document Review
  • Past Plans

When building a strategic plan, we start by looking to the past and facilitating a conversation of sharing to understand what accomplishments have been achieved and what learnings have been realized.

  • Current State Analysis
  • Current Issues Analysis
  • Stakeholder Analysis

Using analysis tools is an effective approach to understanding where an organization is at. These illuminating discussions help to point out what needs to be done and put issues and opportunities into perspective.

  • Envisioning the Future

Defining a clear vision of an aspirational future provides a word picture of what the organization seeks to achieve through its long-term goals.

  • Vision
  • Mission
  • Values

Each statement may be part of the strategic planning process but have a different objective. These statements may be written for organizations or individual departments. What is the reason for existence, what are the core principles, and what is the ideal state?

  • Priority Setting
  • Developing Goals
  • Creating Action Plans
  • Determining Accountabilities
  • Timelines
  • Financial Implications

The process of explaining how your organization is going to make your strategy a reality.

  • Managing Risk

Prioritizing, evaluating, and implementing the appropriate risk-reducing controls/countermeasures recommended from the risk management process will help to protect the successful completion of your strategic plan.


The sessions provide by Marie Delorme, were by far, the best I ever attended! They were focused, well facilitated and we had the opportunity to watch our Strategic Plan being developed in real time. Done in a day and having the plan available right after the session is extremely valuable.

Effective strategic planning, good governance practices, and strong leadership capacity-building, are all very critical to any organization’s success and long-term sustainability. This is exactly what the Imagination Group of Companies was able to support Miskanawah develop, implement and maintain.

Kirby Redwood, CEO, Miskanawah

We’ve had a great experience with Marie so far. She’s been extremely responsive, organized, and thorough in her work. She submitted a comprehensive report on time and it will be very useful as we move forward with our Indigenous strategic planning.
