“Strategic Planning does not deal with future decisions. It deals with the futurity of present decisions.” Peter Drucker, the late management guru.
VBNK defines strategic planning as “the process by which the guiding members of an organization envision its future and develop necessary procedures and operations to achieve that future.” A strategic plan must be flexible and practical and yet serve as a guide to implementing programs, evaluating how these programs are doing, and making adjustments when necessary. We facilitate our partners to look for Best Fit, which means find the right balance of Needs of Stakeholders, Enabling Environments, and their Capacities.
On 29th of April 2020, at VBNK office in Phnom Penh with support from Health Policy Plus, we facilitated a session with key staff of Buddhism for Health to discuss needs of their stakeholders as part of their strategic planning process. This was an important step to have a complete Strategic Plan for Buddhism for Health by end of June 2020.
