Strategic Planning
Our specialized strategic planning process helps your organization develop practical strategic plans that don't end up on a shelf.


We guide your team through a proven process that leads to positive change and a strong sense of ownership for everything in the plan. We tailor our planning processes and plans to your organization’s unique needs and situation.

Beyond the “Forgotten Plan” Syndrome

Too many organizations invest time and money in the planning process, but never implement their strategies in an effective way. Office bookshelves are full of planning “binders” that gather dust instead of propelling the organization forward.

At Dams & Associates, we’ll help you develop strategic plans that people will feel motivated to use, not just for a few weeks but until the goals are achieved.

Your plan will be supported by a strong foundation of trust, ownership, and personal commitment developed during our planning retreats. (A retreat may be on-site or off-site at your discretion.)

Voice of the Customer

When it is mission-critical to understand the perception the most important internal or external stakeholders have of your organization or function, we serve as unbiased outsiders who objectively document these perceptions. We accomplish this through confidential interviews.

You will use our Voice of the Custome analysis to ensure your mission and strategies are customer-focused.

Focus On The Long Term

"Creating a discussion forum led by consultants from the outside opened up various points of view in an extremely energetic fashion. . . on issues that have never been discussed. . . . Why aren't they discussed? Because our day-to-day problems always occupy the greater part of our effort and time." ("Helping a Company Come of Age," Management Review, November 1988).
