We offer Strategic Planning expertise to Cambridge-based businesses

At Satori Consulting inc. our associates are experienced strategic planning facilitators and business consultants for Cambridge. For more than 15 years, Satori has supported executive teams and Boards in developing integrated strategic plans.  An integrated plan creates alignment and generates a clear line of sight from vision to strategy throughout the organization. We believe a plan developed in isolation rarely produces expected results and does not allow for the engagement and understanding necessary for driving results.

An integrated strategic plan leverages the involvement of your key stakeholders, highlights and amalgamates interdepartmental interdependencies and facilitates both individual and collective ownership of the plan. Our business consultants in Cambridge can facilitate the development of an integrated strategic plan.

In 2004, our adept strategic planning facilitators and business consultants began developing comprehensive, realistic, strategic plans for a wide range of Cambridge clients.  Sandi Verrecchia, CEO, and her team currently work across a diverse set of industries including banking, insurance, pharma, logistics and non-profit organizations. Satori’s approach is systematic and predicated on comprehending the expected deliverable. Our philosophy is that strategic planning is fluid and we pride ourselves in being flexible and agile to ensure we are providing the expertise that is required by the organization rather than trying to fit the organization needs into our processes. Satori’s business coaches and business consultants in Cambridge support team building and believe strategic planning can, and should, be fun. Creating a structure that allows for fun, learning, listening and change is as an integral part of the strategic planning process.

“Satori Consulting was hired to facilitate a strategic planning session of our credit union’s senior management team. Sandi Verrecchia provided a great framework for our group to pull together different perspectives and ideas in order to build our long term strategy. She was professional and patient as we worked through our discussions and guided us effectively. Our time was efficiently used and all participants felt that the sessions which took place over two days were time well spent.”
