    2009 Institute for Staff DevelopmentStudents Today, Leaders Tomorrow
    The easiest and fastest way to prioritize is to board all suggested goals and using colored dots, give each member 5 dots and ask them to “spend” their dots any way they want depending on which goals they think are most important and most reachable.
  • 13. Developing Strategic Actions to Meet Goals
    Form groups – perhaps committees – by interest area
    Brainstorm ways to meet the goals
    For each strategic action, determine
    What needs to be accomplished
    What resources are needed
    When it will be completed
    Who will be the lead and who will be on the “committee”
    How will success be measured
