Strategic Planning & Advice


Kronley & Associates' customized approach to its clients means that every plan is unique and actionable. The firm’s specific methodology is a product of detailed review and discussion with the client. It is distinguished by ongoing emphasis on enabling stakeholder voice throughout the process, and in developing findings, and providing recommendations. Our planning typically features a deep dive into the contexts in which the organization operates, extensive material review, interviews and focus groups with stakeholders, constituents, and audiences, benchmarking, surfacing opportunities and challenges, and developing a theory of change. A draft plan is prepared and then revised after further discussion with the client.


The firm also responds to requests from philanthropic organizations, corporations and nonprofit organizations regarding program development and implementation, management and governance issues and dissemination of information about the organization’s accomplishments and programs.
