Overview

Shows leaders and managers of public and nonprofit organizations both how and why they should use strategic planning to improve the performance of their organizations. This expanded edition includes many examples to illustrate both successful and unsuccessful planning efforts, while new chapters address planning implementation, strategy evaluation and reassessment, and key leadership roles vital to effective strategic planning. In addition, the author presents a planning process used successfully by many public and nonprofit prganizations--the Strategy Change Cycle--along with detailed guidance on its application.

Since John Bryson's widely acclaimed Strategic Planning for Public and Nonprofit Organizations was first published in 1988, it has been reprinted nine times and has become the standard book in the field. This thoroughly revised edition sets the pace and combines information on leadership, strategic planning, and tools that can help leaders and followers enhance organizational achievement.

    Very Useful for Government Organizations

    I found this book useful in the public sector. Bryson helps to walk you through strategic planning from beginning to end and gives you various examples throughout each chapter.
