A strategic plan is central to a company's ability to make critical business decisions and develop a mission and vision that will inspire and excite employees, customers, partners, and shareholders. Yet, many organizations shy away from strategic planning due to pitfalls that range from overwhelming complexity to fears that such planning is a waste of time in an ever-changing marketplace. "10 Steps to Successful Strategic Planning", the first book in a new ASTD Press "10-Step" series, offers a process as simple as it sounds to help you overcome your fear and get your organization on the path to planned success. Loaded with worksheets, exercises, tips, tools, checklists, and other easy-to-use and interactive learning aids, this book walks you through the process from beginning to end. Along the way, you will see how other organizations have planned their way to success in the many Case Study sidebars that enhance the easy-to-follow text.
