We'd love to hear from you.


Organizations use a strategic plan to define goals and map the strategies needed to reach those goals. These two related documents will walk you through the process.

  • Preparing to Write Your Strategic Plan (PDF, 32 pages) guides you in the collection of foundational information needed to develop a sound strategic plan.
  • Writing Your Strategic Plan (PDF, 40 pages) uses the gathered information and provides the framework to build organizational commitment and guide the development of the strategic plan.

Use the worksheets in the appendices to document the information needed for each step.
