Specifically, they wanted to build capacity in all aspects of their activities, evaluate overall operational effectiveness and business processes, and determine methods to assess how to improve overall management.

The Solution:

A high-powered core planning group, including the Council Chairman, was assembled and facilitated by Val Marmillion. MCo conducted an environment scan, stakeholder interviews, focus groups and produced a report of findings and a strategic plan.
