Strategic Planning Models and Setting Goals

When an analysis of an organization's internal and external environments uncovers an area that needs to be addressed, it can be difficult to gain traction for planning improvement. Strategic planning models can help frame and structure the creation of short, mid and long term goals and create a roadmap towards achieving them.

For this discussion, you will apply one of the strategic planning models to create goals and outcomes to address the issues for improvement that you identified with your SWOT analysis in your unit 3 assignment. In your response, address the following:

A brief explanation of the strategic planning model you have chosen and why you believe it will be a good fit to address the issue identified in your SWOT analysis.

You may wish to call out where goal setting and improvement planning occurs within the model you chose.

Create one just-in-time goal that can be applied immediately to some aspect of the issue you have identified.

Briefly explain how achieving this goal is realistic and will begin addressing some aspect of the issue in the immediate future.

Create one mid-term goal (six months t five years to achieve) that will result in an improvement related to the issue you have identified.

Briefly explain how achieving this goal is realistic within the time frame and will lead to improvements.

Create one long-term (five or more years to achieve) that will result in an improvement related to the issue you have identified.

Briefly explain how achieving this goal is realistic within the time frame and will lead to improvements.

Briefly reflect your experience applying the model you chose to set your goals
