Planning for International Science Leadership

Over a five-month process, AmericaSpeaks worked with the Academy of Natural Sciences (ANS) in Philadelphia to develop a five-year strategic plan to remain relevant and influential in the 21st Century. AmericaSpeaks worked with the Academy’s leadership to design a process that involved nearly all staff and Board members of the institution.

The resulting strategic plan developed a primary focus of establishing international leadership in understanding and predicting change in ecological systems and their biological diversity. Included for each of the plans’ five strategy areas were performance measures and priority actions, supported by new financial, management, and fundraising plans.
