Identifying a strategic plan issue is an important first step in creating a strategic plan, but if there isn’t already a clear issue to be addressed, how can you determine what may make a meaningful impact on a community or organization? The answer is to consider the mission and/or vision of the organization, and then continue to ask questions until you arrive at an issue you feel confident will improve the organization in some way. Investigate to see if there is a particular segment of the organization that is underperforming or is not effectively meeting the needs of the population it is designed to meet.Are there notable organizational achievements, successes, or failures that could be built upon or addressed? How are current and future trends in the industry likely to affect the organization? What strategic steps can be taken so that the organization is most likely to be successful in achieving the changes? Although it may initially feel like there are more questions than answers, delving into the current state of an organization will aid you in selecting a meaningful strategic issue. For this Discussion, you will select and provide a summary of the strategic plan issue you wish to use for your Strategic Plan. You will have the opportunity to receive peer feedback before officially submitting your Strategic Plan issue for instructor approval in this week’s Assignment due on Day 7 of Week 2 (SecOND PART OF ASSIGNMENT, WILL UPLOAD TOMORROW OR TONIGHT) To Prepare: Review this week’s Learning Resources and the document How to Identify a Strategic Plan Issue (ATTACHED).Identify a strategic plan issue that has a significant impact on your organization and/or community.
