Western Research Parks needed to engage stakeholders more deeply in its plans for the future.
Stiletto led a visioning and strategic planning exercise to deepen the engagement between the university and the research park. It created a roadmap charting the actions Western Research Parks could take to build engagement with stakeholders and improve operations.
The engagement resulted in a number of impacts:
Working with Stiletto was a great experience, and the work exceeded our expectations. With some consulting firms, you feel like you're just one of their many projects. With Stiletto, I never felt like we were just one of many. I always felt like we were a priority and they were on it. They were attentive to our requests as well as proactive in giving us advice throughout the process. They were always very open to iterating as we needed. They kept to their timeline and there were no surprises. I would without a doubt recommend others work with Stiletto, and we will be working with them again for another project.
