Strategic Planning Back »

Our planning process helps organizations set a direction for their future and move forward. We use Appreciative Inquiry to help identify strengths and build on them. Your members will get a written action plan and a better understanding of their roles in reaching your shared goals.

Planning Components:

  • Finding the BEST of what is
  • Where COULD we go? What might be?
  • Where SHOULD we go? What should be?
  • Where WILL we go? What will be?

Bring your group together for one full day or two half-day sessions to set goals that will guide your organization for the next 3-5 years.
