Strategic Planning & Organizational Development

CP2 Consulting is a strategic planning and organizational development company that works with local governments to create and implement strategic plans that achieve measurable outcomes, preventing your plan from gathering dust on a shelf. We work with the organization, individual departments, and your staff to find common values and goals that move your organization forward.

CP2 Consulting was founded by Cory Poris Plasch, an experienced local government and 501(c)3 nonprofit leader passionate about helping the public sector and nonprofits achieve significant impact & results. Cory has a master’s degree in public administration with an emphasis on leadership and strategic management from Northern Illinois University. She has served in various leadership positions in the public and private sector, including Executive Director of the Wisconsin City/County Management Association, Membership Director for the Alliance for Innovation, and most recently as Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at POLCO.

She has extensive experience working with both city and county government from her initial job as a 911 dispatcher through roles in the city manager’s office in Illinois communities. She speaks across the country on multiple topics affecting local governments and public sector organizations, like the use of data, civic engagement, engaging hard-to-reach populations, and innovation in local government.

CP2 consulting works with local governments, nonprofit organizations & community leaders to define, formulate and implement progressive, data-driven, and result-oriented strategic plans that drive big-impact results in the community. We pave the success of local governments and nonprofits by offering solutions to better engage community stakeholders, including communities of color and historically marginalized populations, in decisions that affect them and produce a positive change in society.
