What is Strategic Planning?
Strategic planning is a process that provides direction and meaning in the day-to-day activities of an organization. Diamond Management Consulting Inc. designs planning processes to examine an organization’s guiding values, current status and environment, then relates those factors to the organization’s desired future state, usually expressed in five-to-ten-year time periods. The organization may be a program, school, school district, public or private agency, or any other institution that is looking to intentionally shape its future.
Why is it necessary?
Today’s business and organizational environments are constantly changing: demographically, economically and culturally. Diamond’s strategic planning processes are designed to help your organization respond and adapt to those changes. We support you to create your organization’s future within the context of change.
Strategic planning helps to improve performance at all staff levels in your organization. Members of any organization can become so bogged down in routine functioning and daily challenges that they lose sight of the organization’s overall vision and purpose. A strategic plan will not only refocus your members’ sense of purpose, it will stimulate future-oriented thinking based on a shared sense of mission.
