Celebrating 100 years of serving California farmers and ranchers in 2019, the California Farm Bureau Federation sought to review their mission statement and develop a detailed and well-constructed strategy to help usher in their second century.
Using a number of diagnostic tools, Morrison gathered valuable information to assist key leadership in their strategic planning and decision making. Morrison then facilitated a one-day retreat where key leaders in the organization leveraged that information to review and refine the organization’s mission, create a simple and easily understood purpose statement and a defined set of core values.
This revamped and simplified mission provided a foundation for a follow-up two-day strategy development process, facilitated by Morrison. Over the course of several days, the leadership of CFBF developed a number of strategies core to their purpose and values that CFBF personnel then cascaded through the organization.
