Carol A. Poore, Ph.D., MBA

President, Poore & Associates Strategic Planning | Strategic Real Estate

Whether large, medium or small, most organizations struggle with strategic plan implementation.

Poore & Associates provides comprehensive strategic planning services to help organizations chart a clear and compelling future and expand organizational capacity.

My clients include nonprofit, trade association, for-profit, and higher education organizations.

I am an executive consultant, community leader, speaker, author, university faculty member, licensed real estate broker, and mom of two adult sons. I consistently deliver a dynamic presence and create a life-changing experience to help any organization and its leaders define their legacy and achieve strategic impact.

I received my Ph.D. in Public Administration and MBA from Arizona State University. My primary field of research focuses on strategic leadership and community building, with a keen focus on downtown community revitalization and the importance of creating social capital.

In my hometown of Phoenix, Arizona USA, I was recognized by Phoenix Community Alliance as a City Shaper — having impact on the future of my city.

I thrive on helping leaders develop customized, comprehensive, compelling strategic planning programs. My strategic planning support helps every organization create clarity on how it will deliver on its mission and achieve strategic impact. My very select and focused work as a licensed real estate broker in Arizona supports clients who want to sell or buy properties and make strategic real estate investments.

As a native Phoenician, I founded Phabulous Experience™ to share the fascinating story of Phoenix, Arizona, USA from its past to the imagined future. Combining art, storytelling and placemaking, Phoenix Phabulous features a collection of 17 large traveling murals created by a diverse group of talented local artists. 

I serve on faculty at ASU’s School of Public Affairs. My courses include Community Development, Leadership and Change, Public Administration, and Public Policy.

I am a founder and member of ASU Women & Philanthropy. I served as ASU’s vice provost at the West Campus, as well as served on the Dean’s Councils for W.P. Carey School of Business and ASU’s College of Public Programs (now the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions).

I’m a proud member of these global professional associations.

I’m a LinkedIn author. You can connect with me on LinkedIn here.
