Once you’ve got your Strategic Plan nailed, you have the map on which to navigate your budget forecast, human and resource planning, marketing and succession plans, to name but a few.
3-5 years is a long time to plan ahead, yet if you don’t plan, how will you know you’ve achieved success? It isn’t enough to put a group of people together without first finding out where the organisation stands in its community/marketplace, what’s happening internally and externally, and what changes in the world are going to have an impact. Even the smallest club or business doesn’t live in a vacuum, yet is even more vulnerable to change.
The recent pandemic has led to unprecedented change and upheaval and now is THE time to review your plans and refocus your priorities to steer the ship back on course to get to your goals, or to set a new course altogether.
We put together a selection of options for you to choose from, depending on where you are at.
This program was designed by Pat Grosse, founder of The Community Entrepreneur. Pat was first introduced to strategic thinking whilst working in a role that involved monitoring European Union policy developments and identifying opportunities to promote new initiatives coming from these strategic documents (usually leading to multi-millions in funding opportunities). After a small stint working in a regional secretariat, Pat relocated to Australia and was employed by a Government entity, where she keenly read Strategic Plans and Policy Documents to anticipate opportunities to work with community service providers to make best use of the implementation measures coming from them.
Since 2010, Pat has helped not-for-profits and business owners to develop their strategic plans. She has trained centres to run their own strategic planning process, leading to the development of this resource.
