You can have the right team, a supportive board, and updated amenities but if your club and community don’t have a strategic plan, you can waste time, and money and lose members to the lack of clarity and focus.

SCS works with your team to create this roadmap that guides decision-making, resource allocation, and overall direction so everyone is headed in the same direction and has clarity on how to contribute to the club and community’s success. 

An SCS Strategic Plan will:

  1. Provide a clear direction: This includes clarity on purpose and making sure the club’s mission, vision, and values are in alignment with the current culture and defining your short- and long-term goals. 
  2. Support decision-making: With an SCS strategic plan in place, the club’s leadership can make informed decisions about where to invest resources, which initiatives to pursue, and how to respond to new challenges or opportunities. The plan can serve as a framework for evaluating different options and selecting the ones that are most aligned with the club’s goals and priorities.
  3. Align stakeholders: An SCS strategic plan can help to align the interests of the club’s various stakeholders, including members, staff, vendors, and community partners. By communicating a shared vision and set of goals, the plan can help to create a sense of unity and collaboration among these different groups.
  4. Enable monitoring and evaluation: An SCS strategic plan provides a basis for monitoring the club’s progress over time and evaluating its performance against its goals. We provide the club and community with an easy-to-follow document that doesn’t live on the shelf but is a working resource for all to use. This can help to identify areas where the club is excelling and where it may need to make adjustments in order to stay on track.
  5. Facilitate continuous improvement: By regularly reviewing and updating your strategic plan, you can ensure that it stays relevant and responsive to changing circumstances. This process of continuous improvement can help the club to remain competitive and meet the evolving needs of its members and the broader community.

Work with SCS and exhale knowing you have clarity, especially during board changeover. The process is easy and gets input from key stakeholders so you can achieve your goals, make informed decisions, and create a sense of unity and purpose among key stakeholders.

I hired Ryan to assist with the strategic planning for Old Hickory.

I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking to improve their company’s performance. Worth every penny!
