Mapping the future: Strategic planning in the American Jewish community


Strategic planning provides a road map to an organization's future direction, sharpening its focus. The process outlined in this article involves several lay committees that assess the internal and external environment and then propose planning initiatives essential to the organization's mission and responsive to its operating environment. For the planning process to be succeed, the necessary funding to implement the initiatives must be built into the budget and the leadership must be committed to the necessary changes.
