Planning

Sound planning is a critical foundation in any business.  We use our skills and expertise to help clients define and then deliver their strategic ambitions.  Some of our planning services include those below.

Planning

Curriculum

Planning

Policy

Development

Creating a vision for an organisation is the first step in strategic planning – it helps crystallise what an organisation wants to achieve.  We work with clients to define where they are now, where they want to be, and also the strategies to get them from here to there in order to deliver their vision.

Regular and informed curriculum planning is one of the foundations in any educational business.  We have a proven track-record of curriculum planning with clients so that they can evolve what they do to meet the needs of the local economies, communities and learners they serve.

We have provided clients with policy development expertise, where we have developed a concept or priority into policy which can be considered with an external wider audience.  Our policy work also includes developing technical specifications and business structures for new and existing organisations.

  • Turning vision into operations

    I’ve lost count how many organisations, meetings and teams I’ve seen who have great energy and enthusiasm creating ideas or defining a vision, only to then find they cannot translate that into something tangible or well defined.
