Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning is the systematic process of envisioning a desired future, and translating this vision into broadly defined goals or objectives and a sequence of steps to achieve them. In contrast to long-term planning (which begins with the current status and lays down a path to meet estimated future needs), strategic planning begins with the desired-end and works backwards to the current status. Strategic planning for NGOs ensures longevity and sustainability of the organization in reaching its planned goals. Resources in this section includes guidance on the strategic planning process, templates which can be followed and sample strategic plans.
