Human-Centered Strategic Planning
Jim Rettew, CivicMakers
Join us for a unique application of human-centered design as we walk you step-by-step through meaningful and impactful strategic planning. See if this sounds familiar - you're excited about the opportunity to do some high-level, proactive, strategic planning for your organization, and yet what you get is a one-off onsite "retreat" that is disconnected from reality, never integrated into the organization's daily functions, and never measured or tracked. What's more, you feel like your staff's input is never reflected in the final document. Then, the following year, you do it all over again and wonder what happened to the previous year's plan. In this session, we'll lead you step-by-step through a proven and repeatable strategic planning process that will act as your organization's north star. This is not your parent's strategic planning process (and nothing like the Dilbert cartoons!) We'll go beyond mission and vision and give you tools to establish a direct line of sight between what you and your staff do on a daily basis and how it achieves your organization's mission. Through this training, you will apply human-centered design principles to the strategic planning process that you can replicate with your own organization.
