Strategic Planning Overview

From FreekiWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a rough overview of a strategic planning process. It is based on work by John M Bryson from the Humphrey Institute in Minneapolis. We will be tweaking and adjusting it to suit Free Geek's needs.

This is a graph with borders and nodes. Maybe there is an Imagemap used so the nodes may be linking to some Pages.

Strategic Documents

There are several documents that should be maintained during the course of strategic planning. We have some versions of some of these already available on this wiki. Here's a start to a more complete list:

  • List of Mandates
    • (things we are required or heavily expected to do by outside forces and stakeholders)
  • Mission Statement
  • Program list (noting which programs are key to which stakeholders)
  • Values statements (Free Geek Principles?)
  • Free Geek Stakeholders (noting which are key stakeholders and why)
    • Internal
    • External
  • SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats)
    • External Forces and Trends
    • External Key Resource Controllers
    • External Competitors
    • External Collaborators
  • Strategic issues (as opposed to operational issues)
  • Vision of success (tied into strategic issues)
  • Organizational chart with committees, departments, and job titles shown (possibly include key volunteers as well as staff)
