Strategic Planning

Creating comprehensive strategic action plans that help organizations achieve goals and maximize potential

Third Horizon Strategies believes that the bedrock for developing sound strategy is acquiring information and developing intelligence that extends beyond contemporaneous areas of interest. To that end, the firm conducts organizational assessments, data analyses, and market research to create comprehensive strategic action plans that help organizations achieve goals and maximize potential. The plan clearly identifies primary and secondary objectives; analyzes quantified financial scenarios; provides strategic insights and recommendations; and outlines a step-by-step time frame, potential barriers, and strategies for meeting each objective.
