AARP Foundation used facilitation to execute a redesigned strategic planning process. The effort reduced planning time from 6 months to less than three weeks. The resulting plan has increased organizational clarity and focus on the work needed to create and advance effective solutions for vulnerable people 50+.
Key Results Achieved
The key results achieved include:
- Significantly reduced cost and better utilization of staff time
- Development of 14 focused goal areas with 74 supporting strategies
- The Foundation now has a way to measure progress against the strategic plan. In the second quarter of 2015, 80.5% of strategies were on or ahead of schedule.
