It can be great belonging to a community organization - getting to know people with similar interests, doing things that make a difference, and celebrating your accomplishments. But sometimes it's hard to make those things happen; people can get stuck doing things the way they have always been done and become so focused on the "now" that there is no chance to get a vision for the future. That is where strategic planning comes in.
Strategic planning is a means of envisioning your organization's future and determining how to get there. It can stimulate ingenuity and new approaches, respond to opportunities and obstacles, and provide a framework for day-to-day decisions.
This learning lab facilitated by experienced strategic planner James Pratt, will lead participants in how to:
- Explore the benefits and pitfalls of strategic planning, drawing on your own experiences
- Become familiar with strategic planning concepts and “best practices”
- Identify ways to harness the power of strategic planning so that it creates real value
- Have fun and connect with other participants
