Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning Services

Any organization – public or private; for-profit or not-for-profit – that lacks a clear understanding of where it wants to go and why, and what mileposts to measure, is doomed to mediocrity or failure.

Bill Fink has played a key role in developing and managing the strategic planning and organizational performance management program for the U. S. National Park Service since 1997. His model for strategic planning is equally applicable to the public sector, as well as the for-profit and not-for-profit private sector. Effective strategic planning is not an activity to be completed in only one or two evening sessions; it requires a significant investment in time and energy by the key people of an organization. Generally, the process will require 25 to 50 hours of meeting time, depending on the amount of “homework” key people are willing to accomplish. Occasional follow-up and progress review meetings are then strongly encouraged.
