The Strategic Growth Plan (SGP)

Generational’s Growth Consultants comprise former CEOs, C-suite executives, and seasoned management consultants. They specialize in pinpointing and addressing obstacles that hinder organizational growth. Our process commences with a multi-day strategy workshop, enabling you and your team to delineate company objectives, establish milestones, and confront challenges, fostering unity within a collaborative environment.

The Strategic Growth Plan (SGP) is designed to cater to companies at various stages of development. It gives your team and potential buyers deeper understanding of your company’s vision and potential.

“I had no idea what to expect going in, but I left being blown away by the process and fired up to execute our plan.”

With a legacy spanning more than 50 years, the Nicklaus Companies stands as a prominent authority in the global golf industry. Following an intensive, tailored Strategic Growth Plan workshop, the leadership team departed invigorated and prepared to implement their plan and reach their goals.

Three Questions You Should Ask

Here are just a few questions we ask business owners to consider. We not only help you with the answers, we deliver a guided, practical process that lays out the right plan to help you reach your goals. Without a clearly defined strategic plan for you and your team, growth can remain slow and more often than not begins to decline.

Do I have a documented strategic growth plan to achieve my goals, and the internal resources to implement it?

Am I satisfied with the performance of my business or is it time to consider fresh ideas and a new tactical approach?

What are the potential negative implications to me and my business if I maintain the status quo?

"One of the best decisions we've ever made."

Take a moment and watch one of many client testimonials about the tremendous value companies receive when they engage the Generational consulting team.
