What Clients Have Said

The Center’s second strategic plan guided by Marcy was vastly different than one she helped create 5 years earlier. Our organization had grown so much and was more diverse in its service offerings which was a direct result of accomplishing much of what came out of the first plan. The staff and the board found the second round significantly more challenging with many of the goals less tangible in terms of how they could be measured. Again, Marcy guided us artfully through the process resulting in a concise but very clear plan for the next three years.
