For more than 25 years, Altarum Institute has designed, conducted, and evaluated strategic planning at the organizational, community, state, and federal levels. We understand the barriers to collaboration and are able to develop effective strategies to overcome such barriers at the organizational, community, state, and federal levels.

Altarum has become a significant thought leader in the field of participatory strategic planning and the training and guidance of leaders. We are sought out for our ability to build consensus, pull together diverse stakeholders, and lead organizations to their strategic planning goals.

Drawing upon all our work, we have used internal funding to develop Compass, a participatory strategic planning guide. We tailor this consistent, yet flexible, approach to strategic planning, which incorporates stakeholder input in every phase and creates lasting collective action, to meet the needs of our clients and their stakeholders.
