I believe the essentials of successful planning in any organization involve good team work, excellent leadership, and a focus on core questions: What are we deciding? What do we want? Why? What resources are needed (including human assets)? How can we get the resources we need and use them productively? How will we measure success? What actions to take and when? How can we learn as we take action?
