Introductory Statement on the FPA Strategic Plan
Strategic planning is an organization's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy, including its capital and people. Strategic planning is the formal consideration of an organization's future course. Resources of any organization are not unlimited and as such leadership or management has to make critical decisions to maximize organizational assets to the benefit of the membership, the profession and the organization all of which depend on each other. Usually a SWOT analysis is performed to assist in plan development. All strategic planning deals with at least one of three key questions:
1 "What do we do?"
2 "For whom do we do it?"
3 "How do we excel?"
Simply put, strategic planning determines where an organization is going over the next year or more, how it's going to get there and how it'll know if it got there or not. The focus of a strategic plan is usually on the entire organization, while the focus of a business plan is usually on a particular product, service or program. Included in the FPA’s strategic plan is a series of measurable projects designed to achieve the various objectives. These projects, objectives and goals will be monitored by the FPA Board of Directors.
