The workshop enables participants to gain knowledge about the strategic and operational planning process while focusing on the sequences and steps necessary to develop, update and measure the results and outcomes of the planning exercise.

Participants will be engaged by sharing and exchanging with others to better understand the challenges and issues faced by board members and managers in planning for the future.

Learning objectives: 

  • Understand the process, requirements and conditions for developing a strategic plan. 
  • Engage board members in a participatory process in developing a strategic and operational plan.
  • Recognize the limits of strategic planning due to their dependence on resources (financial and human) and the choices to be made.
  • Translate concepts into real-life situations that organizations face today and in the future.
  • Develop an evaluation mechanism to assess the process and ultimate outcomes of the strategic planning exercise
