Board Leadership Development
SAMPLE PROPOSAL FOR THE ASSESSMENT, DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF
A STRATEGIC PLAN FOR THE SUCCESS OF AN ORGANIZATION’S BOARD
“If you don’t know where you’re going, then any path will take you there.” Sioux Proverb
Strategic Planning is not an end in itself. It is a framework for continuous, productive, long-range changes. Just as a ship must begin its turn 3 miles before its turning point, so must an organization realize it is most likely to succeed if it prepares in advance.
Committed leaders build cultures that capture and express excitement and enthusiasm about their desired future.
They do this by first acknowledging that purposeful work contributes positively to people’s lives and to the growth of communities. Purposeful direction increases Board engagement, customer loyalty, and connection to future goals.
The future of your Organization will be determined by a strong board with a clearly targeted strategic direction, ownership of well-defined roles and responsibilities and a succession plan that will result in the seamless delivery of anticipated services, programs and logistics.
Engaging people representing your organization, in the current and future strategies, requires that the measurable objectives be meaningful for those involved in the work that will result from the changes identified in the plan.
Identifying, selecting, and tracking performance measures that make possible the strategic intent (survival and growth ?) are key components to long term success. (Financial and Personnel)
