Strategic planning is one process for setting goals and priorities. The result: What we do and how we do it contributes to what we want to achieve in the long-term. However, it is easy to become distracted by unwieldy and repetitive processes, jargon, and arguments over whether something is a goal, outcome, principle, or strategy. Learn a simple, proven model that translates strategic planning into four basic steps (plus one that repeats). It allows for effective design and execution when time is short, and you need to move ahead quickly–without driving yourself and other people crazy.
This webinar will discuss how to:
- Effectively sample qualitative and quantitative research about their past, current, and potential users
- Distill leadership-level concepts (mission, vision, values) in a “where are we going, and why” statement
- Tie strategic planning goals into project management execution
- Evaluate plans based on users’ criteria
- Prevent micromanagement
