Will Your Strategic Planning Event Be the Best Yet?

It may seem as if I am writing this a little late since most organizations already have plans for yearly strategic meetings set before the previous fiscal year-end.  It is never too late to get great tips and advice to make your strategic planning event better. 

According to RARA - A Meeting Wizard's Approach (available on Amazon #ad) there are 5 Common Types of Participative Meetings.  For this time of year, let us concentrate on strategic planning meeintgs.  Why?  As the book notes this type of meeting can bring the following results for a great New Year:  organizational vision, values/beliefs, mission/purpose, goals/objectives, process maps, policies/procedures, new business exploration, and change plans. 

Below are links to a few good, short reads for improving your strategy meetings:
