A critical part of DEI’s turnkey solution is the Strategic Planning Study.  Based on years of experience, we know that planning is key to creating the “best fit” for your organization. Among other key insights, this study provides a plan that encompasses the projected service delivery and preliminary physical facilities requirements for a 5- and 10-year planning period.

Drawing on the Study’s valuable findings, your management team and Board of Directors can make prudent business decisions today and into the future.

DEI’S STRATEGIC PLANNING TEAM PROVIDES FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS TO MANAGE VARIOUS STRATEGIC FACILITIES PROGRAMS, ENABLING FIXED-COST REDUCTIONS AND CONVERTING THEM TO A VARIABLE EXPENSE. 

The evaluation of market characteristics, competitive environment, client data, and potential technological advancement utilization, to name just a few, are considered to provide the information you need to make judicious business decisions. The following five services are uniquely tailored to each client to accommodate your needs.

This study is the most comprehensive aspect of DEI’s engagement with your project. It incorporates the Main Office Planning Study and Retail Network Optimization Study. This detailed assessment considers the retail network, its growth, its impact on headquarters operations, and the financial feasibility of the overall organizational approach to the market, via its facilities.

This study reviews your main office operations, with a focus on the organizational structure, operational change, personnel growth, and space requirements.  DEI will advise and counsel you as to the best operational components to employ and associated timelines and projected operational gains.

This engagement reviews the existing and potential retail network to understand your position in the marketplace and the upside opportunity. Based on client-provided information and demographic and competitive evaluations, DEI ultimately makes recommendations as to the feasibility of each of the retail outlets in the network and the overall health and placement of the network.

A scaled version of the Retail Network Optimization Study, this study assesses a single retail outlet. DEI will draw conclusions and make clear recommendations as to the feasibility of the single site.

DEI will work on your behalf to search for, rank, and acquire sites associated with the set strategy. During any negotiations for land, DEI will represent you and maintain your anonymity.  These services can be performed in conjunction with any of the previously noted studies to create a complete assessment package.

Combined, DEI’s Strategic Planning Department has nearly 40 years of experience in reviewing financial facilities and recommending a critical path for success. Further, there are no cookie-cutter solutions. Our team crafts each engagement to your specific requirements.
