Strategic planning is at the heart of how to make long-lasting changes in your organization. The process begins by looking at where you are now, where you want to go and how you will get there. Done well, a strategic plan provides an indispensable focus that energizes and moves your organization toward its goals. The plan is a valuable guide to concentrating your time, talent, and resources into a successful enterprise. The most important rule of thumb is to make sure your strategic plan is clear and easy-to-understand so you will be able to communicate it to your employees.
