Strategic planning is a necessity these days. A strategic plan is the road map that defines where your organization is going -- its mission -- and how it will get there using measurable goals, strategies, objectives, and a 12-month work plan.

Stakeholders want to see your map before signing on for the journey.

Funders want to review strategic plan to see how funds will be used; board members want to see the plan before they agree to serve; and staff want to know the focus and deliverables that the organization expects of them.

Good strategic planning is a process that gives all those vested in the organization an opportunity to provide input and comment. It includes:

* reviewing trends and opportunities,
* gathering information on best practices,
* identifying your organization's strengths and weaknesses.

Writing a strategic plan usually involves a board retreat as well as staff input. It certainly requires the leadership of someone familiar with the process and with the organization. The planning process for every organization is unique; it must be fit your organizational culture and board expectations.
