VP, Engagement, Marketing and Market Development, Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society

The team at McKinley was so skilled at listening. It was critical for the PATH Intl. Board and staff to feel heard and to have what they were saying and thinking reflected throughout the project. With concrete data, skilled facilitators, and a whole team of experts that could support us from the first project meeting to our 2020 game plan facilitation, we had what we needed to make this a true investment in PATH Intl.’s future.

CEO, PATH Intl.

With the pace of disruption in business and society, leaders and guiding documents must be flexible and fluid. McKinley and the AIA Strategic Planning Committee did a great job in keeping our strategic plan simple and flexible. This has ensured more aligned and collaborative work, fostered staff and leader engagement, and provided the framework for transformation within the organization, the profession and even society.
