Strategic Planning and Business Case

Strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it-all with a focus on the future. Getting members of the same organization to agree on a strategic direction is difficult, but getting multiple organizations with different purposes and views to work together is a daunting task. The Strategic Planning page provides information on the strategic planning process and how this fundamental tool for information sharing and technology integration initiatives can help establish a unified project.
