Overview

When it was first published more than sixteen years ago, John Bryson's Strategic Planning for Public and Nonprofit Organizations introduced a new and thoughtful strategic planning model. Since then it has become the standard reference in the field. In this completely revised third edition, Bryson updates his perennial bestseller to help today’s leaders enhance organizational effectiveness. This new edition:

  • Features the Strategy Change Cycle—a proven planning process used by a large number of organizations
  • Offers detailed guidance on implementing the planning process and includes specific tools and techniques to make the process work in any organization
  • Introduces new material on creating public value, stakeholder analysis, strategy mapping, balanced scorecards, collaboration, and more
  • Includes information about the organizational designs that will encourage strategic thought and action throughout the entire organization
  • Contains a wealth of updated examples and cases

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.
