Strategic Planning or Strategic Thinking?

Is there a difference between strategic planning and strategic thinking?  One is clearly a process – the other is a state of mind.  How do they intersect in this brave new world and what does that look like?
We all know that our world is changing rapidly.  And, we also know that this change dicates a more responsive organization in the future.  So, what does that mean for the typical five year strategic plan?    Will schools and colleges continue to build mid-term plans and long-term initiatives?  If not, what will planning look like?
Join us on Friday, April 27th at 10 AM Pacific / 1 PM Eastern for an ISA Virtual session on Strategic Thinking vs Strategic Planning.  We’ll detail what we believe the future of healthy planning looks like from a truly generative and strategic mindset.  We’ll discuss what it takes to think strategically and then turn that into a healthy and nimble process.
Participants can register online at our ISA Virtual page.  Be sure to download the ISA Virtual Fact Sheet for a review of curriculum.
