Abstract : Strategic planning guides fundamental decisions and actions that shape an organization, its activities, and its purpose. Strategic planning has roots in many different disciplines, particularly military science, community planning, corporate planning, and budgeting and finance. Significant contributions have been made to the field from each of these disciplines. This primer summarizes some of the many different models and schools of thought on strategic planning. It sets forth some assumptions, guidelines, and axioms for an AEPI strategic planning model based on the Institute's experience. Finally, the primer provides some reflections on effectiveness criteria, process design concerns, and some common misunderstandings and misconceptions associated with a strategic planning process. strategic planning.
