1.0 Webinar #2: Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is the bridge between the direction and vision established by leadership and the implementation and management of details that are required to make that vision real and impactful. This chapter and webinar session explored the means by which a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis can be applied to the process of provider transformation to better and more thoroughly plan for the full implementation of the transformation process. The presenters explored a variety of means and settings in which strategic planning processes can take place as well as various tools that can be used to keep the process moving forward. The session also explored means of financial planning, of communicating the goals of a strategic plan, and of measuring the effectiveness of its implementation.
