"Creating a vision...providing direction"

It has been said: "If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there!" or, in another turn of phrase, "If you don't know where you're going, how will you know when you get there?"

Mel Gill has extensive practical and successful experience in helping organizations identify where they're going, developing systems for monitoring progress on the way and measuring whether and when they have arrived.

He has developed or assisted in the development of strategic plans for numerous public service and non-profit organizations. He was, as Executive Director of the Children's Aid Society of Ottawa-Carleton, credited with leading the development of the first substantive five-year corporate plan for any Children's Aid Society in Ontario using a broad-based and creative planning process. This plan was broadly recognized for its groundbreaking excellence. Moreover, the objectives established in it were substantially completed within three years.

Synergy Associates will help you explore the difference between inputs, outputs and 'outcomes' as these concepts pertain to your organization. Synergy will help you set SMART 'outcome' objectives designed to achieve and measure the real benefits that your organization provides to its consumers, public or other key constituencies. You'll explore means of measuring progress toward achieving your objectives. Synergy will help you get the most value out of your human and financial resources and guide you in the development of a 'living' corporate plan that will serve as the foundation for your key activities and operational plans.
