Translating Wisdom into Action: Where Do We Go from Here?
This session will provide discussion around the Strategic Planning Process in which the RID Board of Directors will engage during the Fall of 2017 and how the work of the small groups during the leadership track fits into that process. Strategic planning is critical for organizations in addressing fluctuating economic trends and market variables. For organizations that want to succeed, define priorities and direction in a strategic plan—it is like a roadmap. During periods of crisis, when survival and stability are the priority, strategic plans are interrupted and must be put on hold. But, as recovery begins and the factors leading to the crisis are stabilized, strategic planning is essential. RID has reached that point and with the help of the leadership track participants, will be able to move the planning forward.
