More than planners, the authors are themselves accomplished strategic thinkers and they bring that approach to this useful book. Strategic Thinking and Planning will take a Board and Staff through all of the steps of strategic planning from assembling a planning team right through to periodic review of the completed plan. The templates help keep planners on track, which is particularly useful for do-it-yourself planning processes.
Daryl Fischer and Laura Roberts’ new book, Strategic Thinking and Planning, shines with their years of experience and thoughtful reflection combined with that of other leaders in the field. Just reading it is a useful education. Strategic Planning and Thinking is not a one-size-fits-all, but is designed to work for boards and staff in museums large and small, new or old. I will use it often.
