Planning Group Services
At The Planning Group, our statistical consulting and data analytics practice is focused on a singular goal: helping you find meaningful and actionable insight from a mountain of disparate data. We use our sectoral knowledge and strategic savvy to ask the right questions to first help you determine the problems you hope to solve.
We have facilitated the most challenging groups with big expectations in more than 20 countries. While the requirements of social distancing and new board and management concentration policies have made effective face-to-face facilitation difficult, we have upped the ante with a new class of virtual and hybrid facilitation methods.
Conducting third party focus groups and interviews in a B2B setting is one of the single most important things any organization can do. Most strategies are based on implicit assumptions about value to customers, their pain points and ultimately their acceptance and willingness to pay. We are experts in helping you clarify and externally test your critical assumptions in the face of major strategic investments.
Whether you call it risk management, contingency planning or disaster recovery, we all need a “Plan B.” At The Planning Group, we have been helping clients define and face their worst fears for nearly 2 decades. From a simple risk assessment all the way through to envisioning enterprise failure and the “spiral of death,” we will walk you through a thoughtful and respectful process to help you plan for the worst.
We have trained thousands of people in more than 20 countries over the past decade. With a focus on all topics related to strategic planning and business planning, we provide comprehensive training programs for organizations in all sectors and industries. Topics range from our one day Business Planning Boot Camp to our intensive Masters of Business Planning.
