RDP Consulting Services is one of the premier strategic planning
consulting firms in Pittsburgh. Our projects are custom designed
for our clients, but each one includes the following components:
Planning and Assessment:
we do an in depth pre-planning assessment to gauge the organization's
needs. We gather information around values, vision, mission
and the internal environment.
building and Planning Retreat: We design and
conduct an initial retreat to help participants understand
the process and come together on issues such as organization's
vision and mission, individual roles and responsibilities,
internal strengths and weaknesses, and to train participants
in the skills necessary to participate in and facilitate the
Scan and Internal Audit: During this stage,
we conduct comprehensive SWOT research (Strengths, Weaknesses,
Opportunities, Threats). We use a combination of surveys,
focus groups, individual interviews, and documentation/publication
review in the investigation. We work closely with the organization's
leadership to determine who should be contacted in this stage
of the planning process.
Range Objective Setting and Strategy Development:
We bring together key people to identify issues affecting
the organization , develop objectives that respond to those
issues, and devise strategies for reaching the objectives.
The strategies will meet criteria identified by the participants,
and will be specific and measurable. Accountability for reaching
each objective will be assigned, along with resources needed
Plan: We provide reports to our clients that
outline the strategic planning process in specific detail,
including the results of the research, training and retreats
and Follow-Up: Since dynamic and effective
strategic planning is an ongoing process, we provide ongoing
support for our clients as they move forward in implementing
their strategic visions. We work with key people to ensure
that all parties maintain a uniform understanding of where
the organization is headed and to confirm that common objectives
are agreed upon.
