What’s your plan?
Over the past 40+ years, PSMJ has assisted hundreds of architecture, engineering, and construction firms worldwide with their strategic planning efforts. Our unrivaled expertise and a smart objective point-of-view makes PSMJ an ideal partner for strategic planning. Our goal in guiding you through a strategic planning process will be to help your firm grow strategically in ways that will make your firm stronger and better. Toward that end, we seek to help you:
- Align the future vision of your business with your mission, values, and goals
- Define specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-based objectives
- Clearly define your firm’s service lines, business units, and market sectors
- Define key, differentiable strengths relative to your markets and your competition
- Recognize your firm’s weaknesses, and what’s not working, and set specific goals and objectives to resolve them
- Build a team-based approach through an open, participative planning process
- Define useful metrics for gauging progress, in line with a clear definition of what success looks like
- Instill behavior that incorporates follow up, accountability and review of progress toward agreed upon goals and objectives
- Prevent failure by not taking on too much at once
Our engagements start with a battery of financial benchmarks to isolate strengths and weaknesses, which allows us to effectively help you create a plan that capitalizes on your strong points, works to improve shortcomings, and assigns responsibilities for carrying out the plan. Over the course of 2-3 days, we work with your firm to create an easy-to-follow and manage written plan to help you make the best strategic moves for your successful future.
