Ep. 125 Why NOW is the time for strategic planning and how to do it
Whether your team includes two people or 100, strategic planning is a vital component in your long term strategy for making an impact. A strategic plan is an organized, intentional way of gathering input from all members of your organization to develop realistic and attainable goals that will steer your team towards success. It essentially functions as your magnum opus — housing the purpose, strategy and core values that guide your operation in the present day and for years to come. Catherine reviews why NOW is an essential time for any change-making team to invest time in strategic planning, and how to craft an effective process.
