Business Planning

“Participating in an ActionMap workshop led by Jim Johnson showed me the full power and effectiveness of the software. We captured about 180 pieces of information in as many minutes, all well-organized and immediately exported to PowerPoint and Excel for broader review. Our customer described the workshop as a life changing experience. I’m very pleased to be partnering with Jim in bringing this capability to my clients.”

John Allen, Allen Business Advisors 

Non-Profit Planning

The 90-minute online ActionMap process modeling session that I did with Jim Johnson was a real eye-opener about the amount of work I’m doing. In addition to highlighting the stress areas, the session gave many me insights about where we can strengthen our procedures and how we can expand our operations. The process maps and evaluations were immediately helpful in getting my advisory team on the same page in terms of contributing time and moving forward with strategy, financial planning and fund raising. I highly recommend working with Jim, he is incredibly thorough and easy to work with!

Business Planning

“Jim Johnson worked with me to create a dynamic approach that I could follow to develop an effective detailed business plan for Museum Hue. His collaborative approach was crucial.  A key work product was an ActionMap diagram that clearly outlined Museum Hue’s current operations. Jim encouraged me to think about how to effectively advance my work and create better strategies for the organization. Jim also highlighted Museum Hue’s unique programming and provided ideas on ways we can grow and take advantage of other opportunities. Jim’s assistance and guidance will help take Museum Hue to the next level.”
