Strategic Planning

Our five-year strategic planning process is a collaborative journey, where every voice is heard, and every idea is valued. Through LUMA's proven methodologies, we foster an environment of team spirit, knowledge sharing, and cross-functional learning, aligning your organization's goals, activities, and strategies to develop an evidence-based and data-driven strategic plans.

Change Management

We start with empathy mapping exercises to understand your team needs, pain points, and motivations to help you gain a deep understanding of the human factors influencing your organization. We use LUMA's implementation planning tools, such as "Storyboarding" and "Blueprint," to create requirements and a roadmap for developing and executing change management plans.

Business Assessments

We utilize LUMA's tools, such as the "Why-How Laddering" and "Sketch Everything" to reframe the assessment challenge from a human-centered perspective to engage teams, foster creativity, and promote collaborative discussions by encouraging participants to think outside the box. The current state situation analysis gathers relevant requirements to design the future-state.

Continuous Improvement

We embrace LUMA's principle of iterative learning by regularly reassessing your business processes and seeking feedback from stakeholders. This approach ensures that your organization remains adaptive and responsive to changing needs and industry dynamics by prioritizing critical problems and areas for improvement in updating strategic plans, governance polices and procedures.
