Rapid Recovery Planning

Tailored to the Needs of Each Client

STARR – Strategic Assessment and Roadmap to Recovery

Because in every crisis there is opportunity for creativity and growth.

“In times of disruption, it may be essential to re-examine and reset your strategic direction. It is also essential that your donors know you are doing it. They need assurance that your organization is responding in smart, decisive ways.”
L. Scott Schultz, President

As the coronavirus pandemic upends life as we know it along with business as usual for nonprofits everywhere, it also presents a valuable opportunity: to build new strengths in rapid planning, to become a more responsive and adaptive organization.

S&W’s new Strategic Assessment and Roadmap to Recovery is a process designed for this purpose. Tailored to the needs of each client and completed in a compact 8-10 week timeframe, the STARR Strategy guides nonprofits in re-evaluating their organizational priorities and capabilities and illuminating the path to recovery.
