Strategic Planning

“However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”
Winston Churchill

Strategic Planning
Many organisations find it difficult to define their strategic way forward, considering their vision and mission. Or they face challenges in addressing the right target group to reach their expected goals. Within teams often difficulties appear in combining activities, resources and timeframe in the way, expected by higher management or donors. Sometimes not all team members or staff are really aware of the strategic plan and/or share the set direction.
These are just some examples of the manifold challenges being experienced frequently while dealing with strategic planning processes.
