John J Sullivan
Do you have a long-term plan for your organization? Remember the Cheshire Cat's wisdom from Alice in Wonderland, "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there." Every leader needs a plan--not just for this year--but for the future.
In Strategy and Plans, John Sullivan outlines a ten step process for completing a strategic assessment and then developing a long-term plan for organizational success. Using industry, not-for-profit, and biblical examples Sullivan guides the reader through development of Guiding Principles, long-range strategies, and implementing plans. This all-encompassing approach is applicable to all types of organizations and results in renewed commitment from its members due to their involvement in the process from the beginning.
