Strategic Planning Questions and Answers

How should the activities and results of Strategic Planning be communicated to the rest of the organization?

It is often helpful for all employees to have a general understanding of:

  • Why the company has undertaken the Strategic Planning process
  • Who and what the process involves
  • What is the expected output

This can be conveyed in whatever communication format fits with the company's culture such as meetings, newsletters, e-mail, etc. In addition, there are numerous opportunities within the Strategic Planning process to solicit input from employees outside of the Strategic Planning team. Strategic Planning team members should actively seek these opportunities to both solicit a broader base of input as well as give those employees who provide the input with a more intimate look at Strategic Planning. Finally, it is normally effective to provide all employees with a summary of output of Strategic Planning drawn from the company's Strategies, Mission, Goals and Strategic Objectives. This again should be presented in a degree of detail that is consistent with the company's culture.
