Frequently Asked Questions

Why is strategic planning important?

    Strategic planning helps an organization clarify its vision, define measurable goals and activities, and implement its strategy. The strategic plan of an organization is a tool that functions like a roadmap to success.

How do you lead a strategic planning session?

    Create an agenda in advance of the strategic planning session. Invite all decision-makers and leaders in the firm. Aim to get alignment and agreement on your company vision early in the process. Then, spend time discussing and deciding on goals and objectives. Follow up by sharing the results of the meeting with the rest of the team.
