About i7strategies

i7strategies was formed to assist companies with determining and achieving their goals.

Companies in need of determining or refining their goals will benefit by using i7strategies for strategic planning. Our expertise lies in gathering all relevant information and working in conjunction with company executives to “boil down the issues” to reach the critical strategic goals which are crucial to the organization’s success.

This “distilling” process can take the form of a brainstorming session, a multi-day strategic planning session, or an ongoing commitment to annual planning with quarterly or monthly follow up.

i7strategies also can work with a company to spark enterprise-wide innovation. This can be a one-time or ongoing commitment to creativity and innovation. Programs are tailored to meet the specific needs of each i7strategies customer.

In certain circumstances, a company will wish to add to its existing talent base to satisfy a short-term but vital need. i7strategies can provide specific expertise across a wide range of operational and management categories, providing timely and focused consulting. By “instilling” targeted subject matter expertise, i7strategies gives companies the ability to avoid lost opportunities and operational errors.

Further, i7strategies can provide expert witness services focused on electronic banking and payments.
