52Hero*Health*Hire Strategic Priorities for FY 2013 Issued to the H3 Advisory Board in Draft - January 18, 2013
53Purpose of the 2013 Strategic Planning Process “To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs.” -Ralph Waldo EmersonPurpose of the 2013 Strategic Planning ProcessClearly, every organization needs to go through a methodical process of identifying and prioritizing the key activities vital for achieving desired success for the year. This year’s Hero Health Hire’s process of identifying Strategic Priorities, how success is to be measured, what resources will be needed and a practical timeline for accomplishing this work is well-underway.We have proceeded through acceptance of the following principles:Strategic planning gives H3 the desired overall direction.Strategic planning is to involve input and feedback from the organization as a whole.It shall involve a small yet crucial number of priorities that will yield the greatest impact to moving Hero Health Hire toward greater levels of effectiveness in achieving our mission.It shall include the ability to measure our success on various levels.
54Summary of the 2013 Planning Process This process began with the initiation of the H3 Advisory Board at the leadership group’s first meeting in June, 2012, in Washington, D.C. where draft 2013 Strategic Initiatives were reviewed, discussed and modified.The Advisory Board insights, ideas and modifications were incorporated into a second-generation draft for distribution to the H3 Partners.This draft are now being distributed to all Hero Health Hire Partners to solicit individual input and feedback to be provided within a set time period.Publication of the Hero Health Hire 2013 Strategic Priorities would complete the process in January.“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” -Benjamin Franklin
