Abstract:

This handbook was written for Department of the Navy DON commanding officers, TQL coordinators, and strategic planning facilitators in response to questions about the strategic planning process and how it should be conducted within the DON. It is not intended to teach the intricacies of strategic planning, but is provided to answer process questions. While every question cannot be anticipated, the handbook details one way to do strategic planning that is consistent with the strategic planning model presented in the DON Senior Leaders Seminar and approved by the DON leadership through its Executive Steering Group. While this is not the only methodology, it is the one method used when working with Navy and Marine Corps organizations. To be successful, strategic planning requires commitment on the part of three people the leader commanding officer or an organization, the TQL coordinator of the organization, and a strategic planning facilitator. This handbook attempts to delineate the roles and responsibilities of each and suggests a process by which the three, together, can point the organization toward its future. Strategic planning is a continuous consulting process that must be tailored to accommodate the climate of an organization
