Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Creating and Implementing Your Strategic Plan teaches how to become a strategic organization. It begins by carefully defining what a strategic plan is, what it is not, what it can and can't do, and interestingly enough, when it shouldn't be attempted. You don't 'read' Creating and Implementing Your Strategic Plan, you 'participate' in it. Creative exercises and thought-provoking worksheets lead the novice and the pro through a field-proven step-by-step approach to creating lasting strategic change in any organzation." (Mark Baughman, deputy director, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection)
