Format: Paperback
A good workhorse of a book which takes you through the steps of creating a strategic plan for your organization. A little sketchy in some areas but does provide great worksheets to action all the stages. I particularly liked the emphasis on trying to be realistic in your approach and in the resources needed.

When our organization decided to engage in the strategic planning process, I reviewed a myriad of resources, and I believe that this workbook is the best. Not only does it explain the planning process well, but it offers a variety of paths through which to pursue planning, making it useful for any organization at any stage of growth. Plus, the worksheets are a great addition. Overall, the workbook has helped our planning process tremendously.

An easy read but was expecting a bit more detail and not as helpful as I had hoped.. Missed the CD which I understand has all the templates.

I originally ordered the book to assist in one organization. Since I left that organization, I haven't had the need to use the book to its fullness. I hope to use it with another organization.
