Do you need to develop a strategic plan but don’t know how to begin? This workshop will provide a step-by-
A well-designed strategic plan provides organizational directions, helps to set priorities, assists with budgeting and
resource allocation, and improves overall organizational effectiveness, accountability, and decision-making.
“Individual commitment to a great effort-that is what makes
a team work, a company work, a civilization work.”
Are you ready to explore creative ways of getting your team to engage in out of the box thinking? You will see
how ideas from internal and external audiences are captured and prioritized.
This free seminar provides an easy-to-follow, step-by-step road map for the future that can be used by any non-
profit. Participants will discover how to evaluate the external and internal environment of an organization as well as
the fundamentals of developing mission statements, set goals and measurable objectives and identify activities to be
implemented. “Strategic planning is worthless-unless
there is first a strategic vision.”
Have you thought lately that you have a ton of great ideas, but none of them are implemented? You will
experience less frustration and get more done.
The seminar identifies the tools necessary to implement a useful evaluation process that assesses organization
capacity and creates procedures for evaluating strategic outcomes.
“Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation
is doing new things.”
At the end of this seminar participants will be able to:
• List the benefits of strategic planning.
• Identify the key elements of a well-written strategic plan
• Effectively revisit and revise the organization’s mission and vision when applicable
• Analyze the internal and external environment while recognizing Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and
Threats (S.W.O.T.) related to their organization.
• Create an action plan for moving forward with the strategic planning process
