Reach - Resources & News for Evolving Organizations

Consultants to Organizations  |  October 2011



Welcome to this month's edition of Reach - resources and news for evolving organizations. 


This month we continue our discussion on Strategic Planning. In our last issue we encouraged you to begin thinking about where your organization needs to be in the next 5, 10, or 15 years. Here we pick up with how performance management of an organization's employees and stakeholder involvement are key components of successful strategic planning. We also have examples of great programs from across the country, and around the world!



As you know, we are passionate about bringing new thinking to HR and OD and we enjoy sharing insights that will help your organization achieve maximum results.


Please feel free to forward this month's edition to anyone you think might benefit.  And, as always, be sure to share your thoughts with us on our blog  and Facebook page. 


To reaching success,
