Consulting Practice

MISSION PLUS STRATEGY CONSULTINGJean M. Butzen, President847-280-0089jeanbutzen@gmail.com
In 2006, after almost 25 years in the nonprofit sector, I launched a management and strategic consulting practice, now called Mission Plus Strategy Consulting.  I focus on strategic re-structuring: mergers, joint ventures/partnerships, management service organizations, parent corporations, and leadership transitions for nonprofit organizations. The goal of my practice is to help nonprofit boards and leaders increase the social value they deliver to the individuals and communities they serve through the effective use of strategy.
I am particularly interested and skilled in the areas of management transitions, crisis resolution, and value-driven management.  Most of all, I believe that Mission + Strategy = Social Value, and that nonprofit business strategy is underutilized in achieving mission.  I hope to help increase the use of strategic re-structuring strategies with this blog and with my consulting practice.
Here are links to pages with my background and experience, a list of my clients and some testimonials, and media coverage.
