Planning is the tangible demonstration of your intention to fulfill your mission. No one plans to fail, but most organizations fail to plan effectively. Our passion for planning is unbridled because it is the essential linchpin for creating alignment and ensuring relevance throughout the organization and with key constituencies.
We work with clients to develop plans that are bold, compelling, intentional, opportunistic, comprehensive, clear and unique. Plans with these seven characteristics cause the board to support it, staff to rally around it, volunteers to give their time and donors to give their money to make them a reality. Anything less is unacceptable and a disservice to your mission.
Planning Solution Outcomes:
- Vision Development—A bold and compelling vision that ignites passion and fuels motivation.
- Strategy Formation—Practical strategies to make the vision a reality.
- Full Integration—Comprehensive planning that moves the entire organization in one united direction.
From a vision development client:
“I am fortunate to have been on a non-profit board of directors that Mark Holdt has assisted through the mid to long range planning process. He was fully engaged, very knowledgeable and professional, and was able to help the board members realize that the process was not only of potential benefit, but could dramatically help their efforts and expand a program that was stagnant. I have dealt with many planning consultants for many different organizations, public and private, and would recommend Mark Holdt without reservation.”

From a strategy development client:
“Mark was instrumental in the strategic and site master planning for the YMCA of the Rockies expansion. This $45,000,000 project was the largest expansion the Y has ever undertaken. Because of Mark’s guidance and leadership, this turned out to be a wonderful addition to the Y. A project of this magnitude took vision and planning and a leader who can follow through with all details until completion. I highly recommend Mark and have firm conviction that he would be able to handle any responsibility that comes his way.”
