A fundamental competency of leaders is to guide the direction-setting process for their business, organization or group, typically through strategic planning. A good strategic plan provides clarity, focus, consensus and alignment at all levels to priority goals and results.
Key Process Questions
In this blog series, we will cover key process questions around which the process of strategic planning is facilitated:
- Who are we?
- What do we do?
- Where are we now?
- Where do we want to be?

Along the way, as we unpack these high level questions, we will emphasize when to answer Peter Drucker’s five most important questions to ask your organization:
- What is our Mission?
- Who is our Customer?
- What does the Customer Value?
- What are our Results?
- What is Our Plan?
