Strategic Planning

The goal for strategic planning is for an organization’s management, staff and board members to have a sense of direction across programmatic, operational, and fund development for the next three to five years, be energized about that direction and understand their roles in implementing that direction. Strategic planning processes will generally include: (a) outlining the current status of the organization and implementation status of recent strategic plans; (b) obtaining input from the staff and board members on current operations and strategic directions; (c) obtaining input from external stakeholders; (d) facilitating a planning session with management; (e) facilitating a planning session with the board of directors; and (f) drafting an implementation plan. Consulting costs vary based on the extent of and processes for securing internal and external stakeholder input and scope of the implementation plan.
