Unit 1 : Approaches To Strategic Planning Introduction
Strategic Planning can sometimes sound very theoretical. It can also seem a near-impossible concept to voluntary organisations with short-term funding, and uncertain futures. In order to bring this concept a bit nearer home, take some time to think about the following questions:
Where do you (personally) want to be in 3-5 years time?
(You could think about where you want to live, and how, or what work you would like to be doing, and in what role)
All of these statements could be relevant to aspects of strategic planning. Some relate to the development of the organisation, others are comments on how it is perceived by those who are not (or who don't feel) part of it.
