What Our Clients Say About Our Work

Targeted Strategy Development and Deployment:

"The greatest challenge is not in the development of (a strategy effort) but in the implementation. Strategic Focus Associates' process infuses a large cross-section of the organization with excitement and commitment (buy-in) over a short period of time. This energy in turn greatly increases the probability of a successful implementation of the plan. It gets the flywheel turning earlier in the process which delivers results faster and keeps the commitment level elevated, promoting long term success."
