What Type Of Strategic Plan(s) Does My Community Need For Growth?
8 Nov 2021
Planning is the key to sustainable, managed growth, and choosing the best type of strategic plan is equally important. When a community grows too quickly, or haphazardly, resources and infrastructure are strained. When it grows too slowly, the seeds are planted for a steady cycle of decline. Different communities, at different phases in their evolution, need different plans.
The best plans begin with introspection. When was the last time your EDO took a careful look at your overarching vision? How recently have you explored what the members of your community need and want by way of surveys or town hall meetings? Who are your stakeholders, and how should they be involved? Knowing what success would look like, how to measure it, and what timetable is realistic, will give you a place to start.
