  • Financial Analysis

    • Net Worth Projections
  • External Environment
    • Peer-to-Peer Evaluations
    • Current Economic Conditions and Trends
    • Current and Projected Industry Activity

Your strategy will be carefully formulated with key strategic initiatives, objectives, strategies and tactical action steps.  Your planning process will be a disciplined effort that will produce fundamental decisions and actions that will shape and guide your credit union in defining who you are, who you serve, what you do, why you do it, with a focus on the future.  An effective strategic planning process will articulate where you are going, the actions needed to make progress and how you will know if you’re successful.

Our skilled team of Facilitators/League Representatives look forward to assisting you with your next strategic plan.  For more information about our process, pricing and scheduling contact Howard Bufe at 469-385-6820 or by email hbufe@cornerstoneleague.coop.
