Strategic Planning

IMG_4858_edited.jpg
SALT’s planning method is based on the Technology of Participation (ToP) Strategic Planning framework. The uniqueness of this framework is that it includes components of traditional planning approaches (long-term, project, operational planning) with a cohesive participatory process to help an organization make choices related to its overall organizational purpose. Structured participation enables deeper levels of commitment and a greater capacity for sharing wisdom and owning decisions arrived at collectively. The framework of strategic sessions allows groups to:
  • deal with more data in less time,
  •  recognize and honor the contributions of all involved,
  •  pool individual contributions into larger, more informative patterns,
  •  foster strategic thinking that leverage creativity and wisdom,
  •  promote high levels of group ownership for the resulting plan, and
  •  welcomes diversity while minimizing polarization and conflict.
