Building on Educated Decisions

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is a process by which organisations define their future direction in terms of their vision, aims and objectives. Such processes necessitate the engagement of many stakeholders and need to be informed by thorough research and consultation.

LOCUS is widely experienced in the strategic planning process and the quality of our strategic planning work is based upon our expertise with regard to:

  • Research
  • Facilitation
  • Consultation
  • Knowledge of regeneration policy on a regional, national and European context
  • Facilitated action planning

The LOCUS approach to strategic planning is one of practical, participative planning, in which LOCUS ensures that those participating are as informed as possible and well facilitated, to enable them to make important strategic decisions. The LOCUS approach also ensures widespread engagement of all relevant stakeholders and recognises and values the importance of facilitating participation.

The quality of our strategic planning work is demonstrated in our ability to contextualise development within current regeneration policy, providing clients with an understanding and appreciation of the policy framework within which their decisions must be made.
