Rotary International News -- 29 December 2008
New this month is an online tool for clubs to create a strategic plan. The Strategic Planning Guide is available in nine languages and provides worksheets and information to help clubs set goals and develop a plan to implement them.
The process of creating a strategic plan should be run by a group of club leaders and should involve all members, including past, current, and future club leaders. The guide helps clubs create a vision of where they would like to be in three years and to develop long-range and annual goals that support that vision.
The guide also emphasizes the importance of regular evaluation of the goals and vision and adjusting the strategic plan as needed. Although this new tool was created for clubs, it can be adapted for district strategic planning. Clubs are encouraged to align their strategic plans with those of their districts and RI.
