Planar World Consulting’s primary point of differentiation is its hands on experience from a chief executive’s perspective on successfully going and being global over an extended period of time. It is focused on helping non-profit trade associations and professional societies go global or enhancing existing international efforts. Our services are flexible, whether helping to baseline strategic goals and build consensus, or to work with organizations on the tactics to assure successful implementation and management of those goals.
Services address the four phases of globalization:
- Reaching the decision to go global
- Developing the plan to go global
- Implementing the plan to go global
- Sustaining global efforts over the long term
Services include, but are not limited to, defining what going/being global means to the association, exploring and establishing strategic goals, building consensus, identifying functional sources of information for going global, setting geographic goals and timelines for expansion, budget development, documenting global guidelines for growth, utilizing a network of colleagues in over 20 countries, chapter planning and implementation, alliance planning and implementation, tracking stages of development, developing communications and governance structures, identifying the optimal business models, identifying parameters by which global efforts can be successfully sustained over extended periods of time, and establishing monitoring guidelines for global evolution.
Planar has experience and expertise in both the long term visioning involved in going global and the hands on, practical experience to best assure progress and success. Both short and long term, small and large projects are welcomed.
Our goal is to work ethically, efficiently, cost-effectively, collaboratively, and professionally as the leader in offering these services.
