Project: Developing a Strategic Plan
Strategic planning involves reciprocity of analysis and action. Over the previous weeks of this course, you have been examining foundational elements of the strategic planning process. As you move forward, you will apply these concepts to the development of a strategic plan.
Through the Course Project, you will identify an unmet need within a group, unit, or organization and develop a comprehensive strategic plan to address the need. You will develop your project over the next several weeks, culminating in Last week.
Note: Your complete project will serve as your Portfolio Assignment for this course.
To prepare for the upcoming work on this project:
Review the Course Project Overview in this week’s Learning Resources to become familiar with the project components and due dates.
Reflect on the trends addressed in this week’s Discussion. Think about which of these trends, or any additional ones, stand out as being particularly relevant to your own interests and the professional contributions you would like to make now and in the future.
Think about how one or more of these trends relates to an unmet need evident in a specific group, unit, or organization. For example, you might choose the unit in which you currently work or a professional association to which you belong.
Consider how you could address this unmet need through strategic planning. What is your vision and goal(s)?
Begin to analyze historical data and engage in forecasting to investigate opportunities for change.
