Your organization needs a clear roadmap to accomplish your vision and goals.

Strategic planning can help your organization find direction. It also answers a lot of questions, like what to prioritize and where to focus next. 

We’ll help your team craft an actionable public sector strategy that meets your vision and serves your customers. Plus, we’ll make sure it’s tailored to the culture, circumstances, and constraints of your organization.

Need a lifeline?

The Crowe Government Guide is an on-demand consulting subscription for the public sector providing access to a wide menu of benefits to meet your unique needs - whenever you need it.

Set your organization apart with a clear-eyed vision.

Maybe you do strategic planning every year. Maybe this will be your first time.

Either way, a strategic plan defines where you are going and what is important to your organization.

There's no such thing as a generic strategic plan — we tailor our framework to meet your specific needs.

Crowe has the public sector experience and know-how to guide you through the strategic planning process that focuses on the future.

Draw on the benefits of an outside perspective.

You and your team already know your organization, your mission, and your challenges.

But sometimes it's hard to get past the day-to-day politics and the "tyranny of the urgent."

We bring experience with the kinds of issues you face, paired with objectivity and a fresh viewpoint.

Many of us have worked in the public sector ourselves, so we understand the internal factors.

We can also share insights into best practices across your sector, plus the ability to synthesize your ideas into a strategic plan that spells things out clearly.

Get everyone on board with the right conversations.

The strategic planning process is, at its core, a process to create alignment.

That means it's not enough to gather information and get back to you with a plan.

We create active engagement that draws out insights from everyone.

We’re out to create interaction, camaraderie — setting up a situation where your people are going back and forth across a table.

With a clear structure, talented facilitators, and well-designed workshops and retreats, we’ll help you look at your strategic planning process from a new perspective and find new opportunities.

Take the first step toward your greatest aspiration.

Casting a vision for tomorrow is essential. But “pie in the sky” strategies that don’t connect with your day-to-day reality will get you nowhere.

We make big dreams happen with strategic planning and tactics that are doable in the real world.

We’ll draw on our years of public sector strategy experience to help you come up a way to make your great ideas into great realities.
