Less is More
After leaders spend time developing strategic plans for the organization, they connect with their teams about what actions matter the most. Using a narrow focus, leaders align the organization's larger goals to individual quarterly goals, and conduct regular progress monitoring to maximize results.

After a strategic plan is in place, it’s important for the executive leadership team to meet and discuss what the priorities are and what they are not. These agreed upon priorities shape the daily actions of our teams, who work consistently to achieve results.

A strategic plan provides the overarching, system-wide goals and strategies that guides an organization for 3-5 years. This process results in a shared vision of success through intentional engagement with a variety of stakeholders. The Strategic Planning Guide supports a team through the strategic planning process.
