strategic visioning | setting strategy
Communities with strong plans and a clear vision thrive. At next level, we help your team create clear strategies and implementation plans in order to:
engage stakeholders more deeply
guide staff with a clear vision
leverage resources more effectively
improve implementation of Comprehensive Plans
inform community members
decide using data
Our strategic planning process is interactive and engaging. We help your team think and set strategy. We spend time upfront getting to know you. We design a process that fits your situation. We engage your team and stakeholders to build buy-in, and we can help develop metrics to measure your progress during implementation. We specialize in working with cities with populations of 5,000 to 25,000 and nonprofits of any size.
We help leverage your team's expertise, experience, and ideas using our process-based consulting tools like Results-Based Accountability, Sinek's 'Find Your Why', and Real-Time Strategic Planning. Our process is designed to build engagement, increase buy-in, and improve implementation.
Sometimes a project gets stuck or a great idea gets stalled. Often, because it's outside of "normal" business or job descriptions, or there's nobody to dedicate the time to lead it. When great ideas get stuck the opportunity they create is lost, or worse yet, they create costs for your organization.
Get that project done or a new initiative launched. We help leaders in your organization design and implement new projects & initiatives that help you grow by reaching a new audience, launching a new service, or testing a new idea.
next level helps communities by facilitating groups and networks to better align resources and build partnerships that result in new strategies for meeting community needs.
owners representative services
Expanding your facility or building a new one is a large undertaking and can be disruptive to running your organization. Often, teams lack expertise in leading these kinds of projects that only happen once or every few years in any organization.
We get your project built while you focus on running the organization. As an owner’s representative, next level offers the technical expertise experience to ensure your project looks great, meets your needs and is completed on-time and on-budget. We begin by developing a thorough understanding of your objectives. We tailor a strategy to meet your needs, from pre-construction planning & design to project closeout. We function as an extension of your team ensuring open collaboration and clear communication—tracking issues, facilitating solutions, and delivering accurate and timely information throughout the lifecycle of your project.
We provide peace of mind to project owners by allowing you to focus on core business practices and remain confident that we are getting your project built.
