There are many reasons why an organization may come to the conclusion that strategic planning is necessary. At the root of all strategic planning is change; and extreme change often creates chaos and an uncomfortable transition time. Strategic planning with North Star Facilitators can transform that time of uncertainty to a time of excitement. We do this by helping organizations become more focused, communicate with clarity and create a solid sense of direction.


Why Strategic Planning?

• Increased effectiveness

• Increased efficiency

• Improved understanding and better learning

When is There a Need for Strategic Planning?

• Structural Changes – Your organization has recently acquired, been acquired or merged with other departments or organizations. When this happens you need to bring together different cultures, address mis-trust and often adjust your mission statement.

• Economic Changes – Your organization has recently had a significant increase or decrease in funding. You want to show potential funding sources that their investment will have a large positive community impact.

• Policy Changes – Your board or senior leadership teams have decided to address a social or health issue you haven’t focused on before. Or, you are focusing on a new target group, product or service.

What Does Strategic Planning Answer?

• What is going on in our environment that we need to be responsive to?

• Where do we hope to be in the future?

• What stops us from getting there?

• How do we get from here to there?

• Who will do which actions and when
