This entry is part 1 of 14 in the series Strategic Planning

My class at AU2010 on Strategic Planning started off with what some consider the last slide.

The first slide I showed had just two words and a punctuation mark on it.

They were… “Any Questions?”.

That is becuase I believe that building a strategic plan is just an attempt to answer a series of questions.

Asking the right questions is a starting point.  Getting the right answers is the finish line.

I have participated in many strategic planning efforts over the years.  Corporate level efforts, organizational efforts, personal efforts and more.  All of them have had many more questions than they had answers.  All of them generated more areas to discuss that what we thought we had at the beginning.  All of them did not provide all the answers to every question that came up.  But they were focused around the process of posing questions and attempting to provide good answers for those questions.

Over the next few posts, we will take a look at what I presented  and get you started on a simple Strategic Plan.
