3 Enrollment Marketing, Inc. Announces New Solution That Modernizes Strategic Planning

ONEONTA, N.Y., Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — After years of investing in the current approach to strategic planning, higher education is experiencing widespread financial weakness, stagnating or decreasing completion and retention rates, rising student debt, increasing discount rates, and declining college-going rates—while institutions grow more undifferentiated. For many, the value of a postsecondary education is in question.

Why has strategic planning failed to improve the higher education landscape?

Until now, strategic planning has been very insular, focused on best practices and tools solely within higher education. It has been standardized: the same goals, processes, and metrics are applied across institutions, driving towards sameness and mediocrity. The plans are not actionable fast enough to make an impact and gain widespread internal support.

It’s time for a change—a change in approach and results. 3 Enrollment Marketing, Inc. has modernized the process with the 3E Strategic Planning and Institutional Effectiveness solution, which

Overcoming 3 Major Barriers to RIA Succession Planning

We all know the veteran RIA owner’s lament.

“I started this business from scratch 30 years ago. It’s my baby, and I love it. And yes, of course I want to provide a leadership path for my top team—I’m just not ready to give up control just yet.”

The owner is talking about succession planning, and his hesitancy is understandable. It’s also unfortunate.

A thoughtful, durable succession plan will increase the value of the enterprise for all concerned, from the founder to his internal successors and the entire support staff. It’s also a boon to the firm’s clients, who can rest easy knowing they—and maybe their children—can collaborate for years to come with a firm whose culture and style they admire.

Besides, in most of our succession coaching with financial advisory firms, the founder remains an active participant for
