 "Strategic Planning: Diving Into The Details"

Presented by

Stephanie Karp

(Organizational Improvement Analysis, Alexandria Public Schools)

Thursday, May 9, 2013
Washington DC Metro Headquarters at Gallery Place

Program Summary: Let�s look at strategic planning in depth and detail. Where do we start?  The vision, mission and core values of an organization should drive the strategic plan. What if they don�t?  How do we reconnect the process?  How do we make sure the strategic plan becomes a working document that is monitored and regularly revised, according to the Plan-Do-Study-Act model?  This presentation is designed to be interactive and to have participants share their experiences with the strategic planning process, including specific tools and templates that were successfully implemented.
