Strategic Planning That Sticks: Content and Process for Plans You’ll Use
“We invested all this time on planning two years ago but haven’t looked at the plan since,”
“No one knows what the future will bring. There’s no way to plan.”
“We’re too busy to write a plan. We’re just volunteers.”
The Board Doctor has heard it all. So many of us have been involved in planning processes that just didn’t last. They maybe brought clarity for a short time but certainly didn’t have any long-term effect. We discuss the pros and cons of strategic planning for your organization, review the basic elements of a good plan, and discuss ways to keep a plan fresh and alive. We also talk about alternatives to strategic planning and discover options that may better suit your board of directors.
