Strategic Planning: Leadership through Vision

Paperback Book, 292 pages


This book is divided into two parts. The first part provides a biblical foundation and a theoretical background for the strategic planning process while the second part describes in some detail a sequence of steps for pursuing a strategic planning process. Both sections are important, but the material in the first part is important for getting an overall view of the process--what it is, what it intends to achieve, and the benefits for implementing the techniques effectively. A sound knowledge of the biblical and practical principles of strategic planning is the key to successful implementation of planning techniques.
