Strategic Planning Facilitation

What is a Strategic Plan?

A strategic plan is a document anywhere between 3 and 25 pages long that describes an organization's purpose and goals. To create a strategic plan, an organization might devote itself to a weekend-long retreat or schedule a series of meetings over several months.


Strategic plans help because they bring out team members' mental models of the business, and align team members around a common vision, mission, and values, as well as a set of goals and tasks that team members will pursue over a period of time. A strategic plan is a critical management tool.
