Strategic planning should be a means not only to produce a strategy, but also to engage and cultivate stakeholders, develop leadership, and generate new energy, commitment and consensus around mission. Its primary product is not a written plan, but strategic thinking within the organization, which is achieved through a process of planning followed by a process of implementation. A well-conceived and managed planning process can be the most effective form of organizational development.

Sam Frank founded Synthesis Partnership to advise non-profit organizations in strategy, planning and organizational development. The largest share of his practice is devoted strategic planning, but he also works with clients on board governance, change management, facility, program and business planning, and training.
In 2009 he co-founded Nonprofit Webinars and since then has hosted Wednesday Webinars, a weekly professional development series for trustees and staff of nonprofit organizations. These webinars attract attendees from all 50 states and 6 continents—over 20,000 individuals—many of whom have returned frequently for additional webinars. His own presentations in the series have covered strategic and integrated planning, governance, mission statements, metrics, and facility planning.

He has served on the boards of non-profit organizations addressing the arts, education, the environment, health care, preservation, and homelessness. He has offered workshops on strategic, business, and integrated planning at many national and regional conferences of nonprofit associations.
