Overview

How well is your school's strategic plan working? Do you know if it is still on course? Authors Kaufman and Grise have found that strategic planning is often a good idea that fails for the wrong reasons. With their help, your school can avoid that trap. In this practical guidebook, you'll find valuable self-help tools for assessing the efficacy of your school's strategic planning. The authors identify the basic characteristics of successful planning and show you how to compare your processes and results with basic criteria so that you can modify, add, or discontinue various practices in order to improve results. Kaufman and Grise provide a glossary of strategic planning and needs assessment terms to alleviate some of the confusion surrounding definitions. There are also a series of bar graphs and a scoring table you can use to rate yourself on the comprehensiveness of your strategic planning efforts.
