Define Your Future. Create Your Strategic Plan. Align Your Company. Execute Flawlessly.

The speed at which markets, technology, and competitors change today means that CEOs have to work harder than ever to keep their company aligned with a shared, envisioned future state and strategy for growth. Plus, they need the ability to do this while transforming almost continuously.

The Planning for Growth process leverages Catlin & Cookman Group’s proprietary, proven Building the Profit Spiral® framework to give CEOs the fundamental elements necessary to grow and transform their companies through the Predictable Stages of Corporate Growth.

In a customized, multi-day, collaborative process, CEOs and their executive teams build their strategic plan and the operating system to achieve it. Throughout the sessions teams hone their creative thinking, group decision-making, and collaborative action planning. The final phase is the communication and roll-out to the entire company.

They provided the exact tools we needed, mapped precisely to a company of our size. The Catlin & Cookman Group is an incredible asset to fast-growing, high-tech companies.”
