How to do strategic planning: an accessible, jargon-free primer

Look at things from the 30,000 foot level, clarify your theory of change grounded in evidence-based practices, maintain a laser focus, establish a sustainable business model, identify your hedgehog concept, get the right people on bus, and demonstrate measurable impact. If you execute well, your organization is sure to become a strange attractor of resources, go to scale, become a thought leader advancing your field, maximize good outcomes for customers, and achieve world peace.

  1. While I agree with the outline above for How to Do Strategic Planning – I’d disagree with the premise that it is a “jargon free primer”. This paragraph is full of jargon.
