A Strategic Planning Template for Dummies
This is a very simple template that may be able to assist small business organisations and not-for-profit
groups to facilitate their strategic thinking and consequent planning. Fundamentally, it's rather like a
paint-by-numbers activity only in this instance you negotiate, in whatever manner you wish, so that you
end up developing wise words for each of the criteria that are spread through this mind-map.
When you've done that, simply export your thinking and fine words to MS Word and, hey presto, you
will have a pretty straight forward first cut of a strategic plan. But in saying that so glibly, it might be
as well to remember the saying by that famous Scottish Bard, Robbie Burns, that "the best laid plans o'
meece and men, gae angst astray". So that means you should revisit, review and revise your plan as
life within your organisation unfolds and evolves.
As a final point, there is an accompanying power point slide show presentation I have developed to
inform this template just as this template has been informed by that slide show. The slide show
emerged from my having scoured the net in search of materials about strategic planning and, together
with infused dollops of what I hope is common sense, seeks to summarise some of the more useful of
those materials.
Have fun and may your strategies bring you success.
