Strategic Planning in a Nutshell

“In a recent study, highly successful associations and other nonprofits reported that strategic planning has high impact on overall organizational success. These organizations conduct strategic planning as a routine periodic process. Low-success organizations, by contrast, don’t think strategic planning is as important” – Handbook of Professional Practices in Association Management

Every planning function revolves around these five questions:

1.      Where are we now?

2.      What is changing in our environment that will affect us?

3.      Where do we want to be?

4.      How do we get there?

5.      How will we know when we get there?

– Handbook of Professional practices in Association Management 

Answer those questions and then develop S.M.A.R.T. goals to get you there. 

Here are a few resources for learning more about S.M.A.R.T. goals
