strategic planning process
Strategic Planning Process

Strategic planning as we practice it

  • Provides direction for alignment
  • Is a cascade process, with increasing specificity

vision

mission

goals

team objectives

individual objective

  • Is an inclusive, ongoing process
  • Is iterative and responsive to change
strategic planning schedule
Strategic Planning Schedule

strategic planning
Strategic Planning
  • A necessary evil, especially for centers!
  • Needs to be a collaborative and iterative process
  • Can not be interpreted too rigidly
  • Powerful experience to share
