MNP careers are Different by Design. As an entrepreneurial firm, we truly believe there are no limits to where your career can go.
At MNP, we understand that every organization has its own unique challenges and business goals. Whether your organization is a large public sector entity that must define its direction within a new policy environment, a business in the competitive private sector, a municipality or economic development organization seeking to enhance your community, or an agricultural operation that wants to expand or increase your profitability, credible information and effective planning are key to your success.
MNP’s experienced consultants offer strategic insight so you can develop an effective and realistic plan of action that balances your current needs with future goals. We also help you understand the markets in which you operate, recognize trends in your industry and objectively identify areas for improvement. By providing a framework for your vision and long-term strategies, we help guide your organization from uncertainty to success.
Obtaining the future you envision is possible—with the right plan. It is not enough anymore to just be good at what you do. You need to know where you are going and what success will look like when you get there. Developing an effective strategic and operational plan for your business requires a complete understanding of the market you operate in and the industry trends that may affect your business now and in the future. Successful implementation of that plan requires alignment of all components of your operation—people, process and technology—to support and promote the achievement of your vision.
MNP has extensive experience in facilitating strategic and operational planning processes with clients in a wide variety of industries. Our comprehensive approach is designed to:
Our consultants will facilitate the strategic planning process through each one of the following stages of development.
Implementation of the strategic plan is the most important and most difficult part of the process. The operational planning processes must be aligned at all levels of the organization. MNP’s approach is to connect all departments, functions, units and people to the vision and strategic directions of the organization:
A business plan is the key to long-term success for new and established businesses. Market research shows that creating and using a business plan helps organizations of all sizes start and sustain successful businesses and achieve significant growth despite economic volatility. With uncertainty in the market and additional pressures to manage, a business plan allows you to prepare for anticipated changes and minimize the impacts of unexpected situations.
Your business plan presents the vision, values and ideas behind your business in a way that others can understand. It details who you are, what you want to achieve and how you plan to get there. Having a business plan is critical when negotiating with banks or investors to obtain capital and when trying to attract clients and key personnel. Your business plan also serves as a benchmark against which performance can be measured and reviewed so you can see results and better manage your company’s resources.
Preparing your business plan takes time and specialized expertise, but the benefits are significant. Determining your vision, values and objectives provides a foundation to develop plans for each area of importance, ensuring there is a synergy between every part of your business. We offer a completely integrated approach to the development of a business plan:
Because MNP also specializes in strategic planning and in conducting feasibility studies; our consultants can work with you to facilitate the entire ‘idea to plan’ process.
