STG provides strategic planning services for organizations looking to transform and innovate. These comprehensive engagements utilize a maturity model, provide peer comparisons, and a deliver a roadmap that enables the business to execute its mission in the most efficient and effective way possible. The artifacts are suited for Board level discussion while providing downstream execution strategies.

At STG, we firmly believe technology should be a business enabler, not an impediment to the operations and growth of a company. With technologists and former bankers, STG offers a practitioner-based approach to evaluating an institution’s technology effectiveness, efficiency, and strategy.


We look at people, processes and technology in an organization to gain a baseline understanding of what is working or not working today. We meet with leaders and line of business owners in the company to gain valuable input on today’s operations and the future direction of the company.

At STG, we know that modern workplaces use technology as a business enabler and we help guide organizations to realize the value that modern technology can provide.
