Strategic Planning

The strategic planning process is as important as the plan

Strategic planning is a crucial step to ensure your district vision is inspiring and actionable. The strategic planning process needs to be dynamic, responsive, and focused on changes that are successful, sustainable and scalable.

The strategic planning process is as critical as the actual plan

We help you to build and execute an inclusive, responsive, and effective strategic planning process.

  • We start first by understanding existing strategic planning beliefs and processes to align on goals, roles, and structure.
  • We engage with your stakeholders to assess strengths and capabilities while identifying room for growth.
  • We define a vision and a set of initiatives that prioritize what matters most to your community, creating a communication plan.
  • And we help you develop metrics to monitor progress so that you know when you are achieving your goals and when you need to pivot.

Education Elemenrs Approach to Strategic Planning

Your district strategy will be stronger if you work with the right partner

Though many districts do a great job articulating their mission and vision statements, it’s hard work to effectively communicate this vision and to define and implement the right strategies and actions. Whether you are developing a new strategic plan, reflecting on your current strategic plan, transitioning to new district leadership, or launching a new district-wide initiative, Education Elements can help you develop an actionable district strategy.

Our clients work with us, and refer us to others, for three key reasons:

  1. We are expert facilitators, who engage diverse groups and bring in processes and protocols that drive collaboration, alignment, and action.
  2. We customize our approach based on your unique needs, taking time to learn your context. We never bring in a one-size-fits-all solution.
  3. We get results. We are one of the few education consulting companies that publishes an annual impact report showing how visions and plans translated into results at the district, school, and community level.
