What we have to offerServices
Organizational Strategy
An organization does not always need a new strategic plan. Sometimes they simply need to re-energize the one they have. Scruggs & Associates provides a range of services to get the most out of the plans and organizational structure you already have in place. We can help you reboot an existing strategy or plan- adjusting priorities, assessing capabilities, and rebuilding much needed momentum; or we can turn broad-based strategic plans into prioritized actions or work plans for implementation; or evaluate the organizational capacity, board engagement, and partnership structures that affect the pace and impact of what you do. .
Innovation & Entrepreneurial Development
Scruggs & Associates have led numerous state and regional efforts to accelerate the commercialization of research, build entrepreneurial capacity, foster early stage capital formation, and identify innovation opportunities for traditional industries. Working to identify science and technology assets and capacity, we develop targeted programs and policies to hasten talent and business growth. We are adept at crafting state legislation and at developing performance metrics or innovation indices to assist with measuring impact.
Economic Profiles & Industry Cluster Analysis
Scruggs & Associates LLC conducts economic research and industry cluster analysis as part of our strategic planning projects or as a stand-alone service. Our proprietary assessment tools go beyond the data to provide a level of insight needed to make decisions and take action. We identify and pinpoint the economic opportunities that arise from a region’s unique blend of industries, talent, and innovation assets. With data-driven economic profiles that help clients understand their economic assets, and industry input to identify the nuances of how global and national trends affect a region, our industry cluster projects become living strategies. .
Other Services
Scruggs & Associates provides a set of services that complements our strategy work. We facilitate executive and board retreats, and provide ongoing coaching and assistance with implementation that includes third party monitoring and evaluation of programs and their impact.
