Differentiating O’Donnell’s from the many other “strategic planning” consultants in the market today is his knowledge of, and facility with the use of “outcomes” …. quickly proving to be one of the dividing lines between organizations that can attract funding and those that can’t. This combination, his management skills and the guidance he can provide, coupled with his rare accent on incorporating outcomes… place him head and shoulders above the competition.
