Strategic Planning Process
The Strategic Planning Process enables each division to define priorities, focus resources, establish objectives and outcomes, and strengthen operations to accomplish the Board’s strategies and long-term mission. The process takes teams through a series of workshops and activities as described below to develop division focused strategic plans.
- Strategic Planning Orientation: Senior executives and staff team review the planning methodology, schedule, team member roles, and expected outcomes
- Organization Profiling, SWOT Analysis, and Futuring: The team clarifies the division’s vision, mission, and values; analyzes past and future trends to reveal strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats; explores technology and skill gaps
- Functional and Organizational Analysis: The team is guided to analyze program outcomes, service demands, internal and external levels of satisfaction, alternative services, performance indicators and organizational structures
- Action Planning: The team identifies opportunities for people, technology, and financial changes; change objectives are defined and assigned; a strategic planning document is development.
