Strategic & Business Planning

Sound strategy can transform a good nonprofit into a great one. It will enable you to deepen your mission impact, while securing long-term financial health. It helps ensure you will have a healthy and sustainable business model. Our planning process will help you make informed decisions and win the confidence of your supporters. If you aim to grow, execute a turnaround, re-structure your organization or adapt to a changing environment, this page is for you.


Public Interest Management Group and PIM Canada have a distinctive approach to strategic planning. Here's how we're different:

  • We use hard data. Business model analysis, financial modeling and market research will ensure that your strategy rests on solid footing.

  • PIM plans aren't vague or theoretical. Your plan will address your competitive advantage, capacity needs, organizational structure and staffing requirements. It will include solid financial projections, a set of performance metrics and a tangible framework for implementation.

  • Our planning process is informed by hands-on experience leading organizational growth and turnarounds, as well as applied research on success factors for nonprofits.

  • Finally, we’ll build your plan to adapt and change as circumstances evolve. Your plan will stay current and relevant, helping your organization build resilience
