Occupy Fights Foreclosures
Every Monday, members of Occupy Fights Foreclosures get together to strategically plan to fight foreclosures. Sometimes we focus on "big picture" strategy, projects or campaigns, and sometimes we focus in on strategies for individual families. We work off a strategic planning models. Join us.
A. What is Strategic Planning?
Creating a Map to Reaching Goals
Strategic planning involves setting goals and developing an approach to achieving those goals. In this process we define the political landscape in which we are operating, the beliefs and values of our organization, and lay out key bench marks to reach along the way. Development of a strategic plan significantly helps to clarify an organization's plans and ensure that key people are all "on the same page".
As with any management tool, strategic planning is used to help an organization do a better job, specifically to focus its energy, to ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals, to assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment.
In short, strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future Strategic plans lay out the best way to respond to the circumstances of the organization's environment.
Many community-based nonprofits must often respond to dynamic and even hostile environments.
Simply put, strategic planning determines where an organization is going, how it's going to get there, the resources it will need to get there, and how we'll know if we got there.
