    11. Strategic Planning Set of concepts, procedures, and tools designed to assist leaders and managers with strategic management Helps clarify desired future state and how might achieve it “A disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does and why it does it” (John Bryson, 2004)

    12. Why is strategic planning important?

    13. Important Because… Engages Board, staff, customers and stakeholders in thinking strategically about the future Sets organizational direction and enhances focus Assists with decision making Assists with resource allocation – should make annual budget process easier

    16. Emphasizes Strategic Thinking, Acting and learning • Strategic Thinking: The ability to envision potential futures different from the present • Strategic Acting: The ability to execute plans in a methodical, analytical way • Strategic Learning: The ability to analyze and evaluate the results of strategic actions and make changes as needed

    17. Emphasizes Strategic Management • Thinking/Planning • Conducting organizational analysis and developing plans (strategic planning) • Allocating resources to support the plan (budgeting) • Doing • Executing the plan (implementation) • Learning • Measuring and evaluating overall performance and progress (performance measurement)
