Writing an effective strategic plan

Writing a strategic plan is easy – it’s the execution that is so tough to do!

We support professional services firms in writing a strategic plan and developing a strategic plan in a number of ways:

  • Challenge in creating a clear and engaging vision
  • Ensuring the strategic plan is based upon external evidence
  • Managing execution and planning succession
  • Challenge around how the plan can be ‘sold’ to partners


Creating an effective strategic plan is complex. It depends on your geography, USP (do you really have one?), range of clients and firm structure. Too many firms could create a strong plan but are doomed through the way their firm is structured and the lack of accountability that ensues.
