Council Strategic Planning

A Municipal Council Strategic Planning

Positive Culture’s Visual Strategic Planning processes help Municipal Councils  work to understand the challenges and opportunities of the future and to create the best strategic plan for moving successfully forward together. 

Strategic Planning Workshop
2 days – approx. 6 hrs workshop time each day

Find consensus of vision and strategic direction for the future. 

We work with you to custom design a workshop to meet your Council's distinctive needs. Workshop components could include: visioning together, identifying shared values, performing an enviro scan, identifying challenges, opportunities, gaps, strengths, identifying strategic areas for action, key resources and more!  All information generated during the workshop is graphically recorded, in real time, on large, colourful wall-size charts/ graphics/ templates that help keep focus while stimulating momentum and adding interest to this important work.

Follow-up Report
Within 10 business days of your strategic planning session, you will receive a visually stimulating summary report of the workshop’s activities and outcomes by email.  This will then be followed by a customized CD Rom containing: the report, digital pictures of all graphic recording charts generated during the workshop processes and a library of great shots captured during the session of participants working together.

Review and Renew Workshop



It makes sense to periodically "Review and Renew" Strategic Plans.  This Workshop provides a safe, engaging environment for participants to get together and take time to review the work accomplished toward the plan.  Participants will review together the Vision, Mission, Shared Values and Goals to confirm their continued relevance or come to consensus of necessary tweaks or changes.  This workshop allows for thoughtful and engaging discussion leading to renewed consensus of action and inspiration.

"Excellent.  Enjoyed the conversations and the visual presentation.  Great involvement.  Appreciated your patience and ability to adjust to our needs – Great flow!! "

Maggie Kronen, Mayor, Town of Cardston
