Strategic Planning Definition: Strategic Planning means developing a common vision of where the municipality wants to go and how it’s going to get there.

Strategic Planning Process: In order to determine where it is going, an organization needs to know exactly where it stands, then determines where it wants to go and how it will get there.
Strategic Planning Planning involves 3 questions: What do we do? For Whom do we do it? How do we excel?
Strategic Planning The plan determines where an organization is going over the next 3 years and beyond.
