Directly linked with economic development since the first switch was flipped, the South Carolina Power Team has been a shining light for the communities it serves for decades. The South Carolina Power Team is the economic development alliance of the state-owned electric utility, Santee Cooper, and the state’s 20 electric cooperatives. Seeking a strategy to further elevate their economic development impact, the South Carolina Power Team chose Boyette to lead their team through a customized process to enhance the organization’s economic development effect.
With extensive stakeholder participation and interviews, Boyette designed a metric-driven plan with a detailed implementation/action matrix that will be used to guide efforts of the SC Power Team over the next five years. The fulcrum of any effect strategy is organizational alignment. Boyette suggested best practices and recommended a creative organizational structure to support the Blueprint goals. Additionally, Boyette reconstituted the organizations’ target industry sectors and global business development strategy along with shaping powerful marketing messages intended to reach company decision-makers.
