Scout’s Communications Blueprint assesses your unique communications challenges (rapid growth, fragmented teams, restructuring and more) to make expert recommendations to address gaps and maximize opportunities. 


Scout’s Communications Blueprint process starts with a multifaceted 360-degree assessment of the current state of your organization’s communications.  Then, through research, interviews, observation sessions and comprehensive analysis, we prepare a custom Blueprint with specific recommendations on communications policies, processes, tools and resource allocation to best achieve your communication objectives.


Scout then presents the findings and recommendations to your leadership team and collaboratively defines the execution plan to initiate thoughtful change.
