Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing
to fail.” Those words couldn’t be more fitting for today’s association climate.
You must have a plan. Your association needs that well-thought-out course
of action solidly in place to ensure that it stays true and meets—or even
exceeds—your established goal.
 
Like a personal consultant, this invaluable guide gives you everything
you need to create and execute a successful strategic plan. Armed with
these tools and planning methods, you’re one step closer to the results
you’re looking for. In this book, you get:

• In-depth coverage of the common types of strategic business plans, so you can
decide which might be best for your association.

• Advice on assembling the right team to execute your plan—including when to get
outside help.

• Tips for effectively managing the data-gathering process and analyzing the data.

• Step-by-step instructions for establishing a mission, setting goals and
objectives, developing strategies, and identifying tactics.

• Guidance on implementing a plan, evaluating its effectiveness, and making
adjustments.
