Planning for the Future

NEOEDD provides assistance to communities, non-profits and governments that are interested in planning for the future of their community or organization.

What is strategic planning?

Strategic planning involves analyzing the current situation, identifying goals and the action steps needed to accomplish the goals, and allocating financial and human resources to carry out the actions. It also involves setting up communication and leadership roles to provide accountability for implementing actions and for communicating successes and challenges to everyone involved.

Who should be involved?

Those with an interest in the outcome, and those who have the responsibility to allocate resources and do the work of implementing the plan. This could include board members, organizational staff, clients, policy makers, and community residents. There are various ways to include stakeholder and public input into the strategic-planning process.
