How do we do it?
Our experience in this extremely specialized area is unmatched and our success rate is unparalleled.
How do we do it? Simply stated, we approach it as a new business; a business for which there will be strategic planning, political ramifications, environmental concerns, funding and grant acquisition strategies, operational planning, maintenance and cost projections for the future, and so on. We help guide you through the often-overwhelming process of gathering, analyzing, and understanding your individual data, providing you with the critical component for success: an in-depth, comprehensive strategic business plan. This strategic business plan is the foundation for the entire project and is crucial in the earliest stages — long before design or construction begins.
The Seven-Step method that we employ is a unique product of research and years of successful projects. We have developed Strategic Business Plans for small departments as well as large multi-municipal government agencies, community colleges and universities. The process is a collection of activities and tasks that when completed yields a comprehensive Strategic Business Plan. The Seven-Step process is all encompassing and answers every question that users, administrators and officials are likely to have. The following graphic lists each step in process:

- What will it cost to annually operate the training facility?
- How will the training facility operate on a daily or a yearly basis?
- What is the Cost Benefit and Risk of the training facility over existing training methods?
- What forms of funding opportunities are available for the training facility?
