The Argenti Strategic Planning Process can improve the Performance of Your Organization by helping you to find Strategic Elephants!

Argenti Strategic Planning is a process which, for more than forty years, has been used by over 2000 companies and NPOs around the world. Many of them have since become world class performers.

One key lesson from all this experience is that the starting point for a successful strategic plan is categorically not to announce a Mission or Vision Statement. Instead your planning team must move carefully through the ‘Argenti Purpose Sequence©’.
For a free copy, Get Started.

Another key lesson from the Argenti Strategic Planning experience is that, throughout the process, you must avoid being caught in the details. Ignoring this rule can derail your entire planning process. The Argenti Strategic Planning Process shows you how to concentrate like a laser on the ‘The Strategic Elephants’.

See the Executive Tour for a brief description of The Argenti System.
