Strategic Planning Package


The Strategic Planning Collection

Make sure you are up to date with the challenges of municipal governance with wisdom from Municipal World‘s respected authors and a subscription to Municipal World, Canada’s municipal magazine.

The Strategic Planning Collection includes:

One copy of Roadmap to Success: Implementing the Strategic Plan by Thomas Plant. Item 0084 ($29.95 value).

Roadmap to Success outlines the importance of developing a vision and clear goals, to provide a roadmap for the municipal organization and guide service delivery to the public. As well, the book provides a checklist of the fundamental components of a successful planning process, including: scanning the environment; establishing a clear vision; defining the end state; establishing a mechanism to measure progress; and creating a way to communicate success. It also details the key leadership role senior management has in thinking strategically and utilizing the strategic plan as the key document to drive change in the organization. If the strategic plan is to be a guiding document, then envisioning how the plan will be implemented in its early stages, and aligned to the operational level of the organization will help to improve the chances of it being a meaningful and actionable plan.

One copy of Strategic Planning for Municipalities: A Users’ Guide by Thomas Plant. Item 0085 ($29.95 value)

Too often, strategic planning is seen as a complex process, involving only senior management in the design and production of a glossy strategic plan document that is used infrequently in the running of the municipal operation. But, strategic planning has the potential to be a powerful process that catalyzes the municipal organization, bringing together the public, staff and management in the development of a common vision, direction and goals. It can also function as an accounting mechanism, allowing the public and management to evaluate progress and ensure that the municipality is moving in the right direction. Strategic Planning for Municipalities takes the reader step-by-step through this process.

A one-year subscription to Municipal World magazine ($55 value). This offer is valid for new subscribers only. Please provide us with the full name and mailing address of the person to receive subscription.
