“We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies.”

Emily Dickinson, American poet


Strategic Planning


What if a plan is not working?

What if a plan is not working



There are a number of reasons why strategic plans fail to do what they are meant to do.



Plans will not work if:

- Aims are unrealistic;
- Objectives are not clearly defined;
- Actions are not specific;
- The plan is not used as a working document;
- The plan is not monitored and reviewed;
- There are no systems in place to track actions and ensure follow up;
- Staff members are not involved in the planning process.
