Have you been postponing your strategic planning, thinking you’ll just wait until things settle down?
If this seems like a song that continues to repeat itself, know that you are not alone. Let us help you get un-stuck.
When it comes to leading organizations, risk is certain and without clear goals, each decision is a bit like saying, “I’ll take what’s behind Door #2” (yes, for those old enough, that’s a throwback to the popular 80’s TV game show, Let’s Make a Deal). Without goals, you don’t know where you want to go and success becomes accidental rather than intentional. Hence, the importance of strategic planning!
Strategic planning is a critical tool for your organization’s success. It describes where your organization is going over the next few years and how you’re going to achieve those goals. Organizations in every industry, in all sectors and of all sizes utilize strategic planning to enhance their ability to succeed.
Having a strategic plan—a consciously-chosen and clearly-defined framework for moving forward towards achieving your organization’s mission—offers many potential benefits ranging from stronger impact, greater donor and client satisfaction, and saving time and money.
