What is a Strategic Plan?

An organization's strategic plan serves as a roadmap for the next three to five years to show where an organization is headed, how it will get there, and how it will monitor progress in implementation.

Who should be involved in the process of creating a strategic plan? The board, organization, leadership, and staff, as well as external stakeholders.

A good strategic plan provides clarity internally (to the board, leadership, and staff) and externally (to funders, community partners, and the low-income population) about the organization's mission and its vision and/or values. The plan also identifies the goals to work toward the mission, strategies to achieve the goals, and action steps to implement who will do what and when.
