Stevens Strategy provided the design and facilitation of a 5-phased strategic planning process resulting in a new dramatic vision, strategy and operational plan for University of St. Thomas.
We had a few false starts in strategic planning, but we were very fortunate to find John Stevens who brought us his strategic planning system and his facilitation skills to put us on the right track. John worked very well with faculty, was supportive of me as president and helped our board fulfill its strategic role. We have been very pleased with the work Stevens Strategy has done for us.

We selected Dr. John Stevens and Stevens Strategy from a sea of consultants, and the outcomes of the alignment of our talents have exceeded my expectations. In particular, areas of strength of Dr. John Stevens consulting work include the integrity which John brings to his work as a SP consultant; the effective inclusion of essential key constituents in the process, and the resulting ownership of the strategic agenda by broad elements of the community…I’d note that the development and growth in maturity of a critical mass of faculty, administrators, students and staff may represent our greatest success. Additionally, we are moving toward a campus culture of greater communication and transparency. Without such communication and transparency, it would be difficult to engender the trust andgenerativity we need to advance our community. I believe UST’s implementation of Dr. John Stevens’ model was central to this important shift in our culture.
