Strategic & Succession Planning

Do you have great ideas but lack guidance on how to prioritize and implement them?
ZIM Consulting can work with you to strengthen your organization through the development of a strategic plan or a succession plan. We partner with you in the training and coordination of the efforts of staff members, volunteers, and other key stakeholders in order to help you realize your organizational potential. ZIM can analyze your organizational infrastructure and operational systems and make concrete suggestions that will support your development and growth. Or, if you are potentially close to a leadership change or just want to plan ahead to protect the organization, ZIM can help you develop a succession plan to transition to new leadership.
Chess Pieces


If you need some help establishing your direction or refining your internal procedures and strategies, ZIM Consulting can help. Strategic planning services can occur as part of a retreat facilitation or can be conducted independently with the help of key organizational stakeholders.



Whether there's a potential leadership change approaching, or you just want to make sure you have a plan in place in case of an unexpected change, ZIM Consulting can help you get a plan in place to ensure stability.
