How many times have you seen significant time & money spent on “The Vision”, “The Mission”, “The Strategic Plan” – only to have that expensive work put on the shelf and never implemented? You tired of constant conflict and lots of talk with little to show in actual results? As a “getting it done” person working with multiple organizations, although some projects go well, many are frustrating as they get bogged – really bogged down in meeting after meeting with little.
