I was once told by a former boss “If you fail to plan, you might as well plan to fail.”
Put another way, without OLSHF’s Strategic Planning process this decade:
And my friend Christina would, in her words, “still be blind as a bat.”
As we approach the new decade the time is right to set our sights on the Foundation’s next Strategic Plan, which will provide a direction for the organization through 2025 and beyond. We take our planning process seriously at OLSHF as this process in the past 10 years has provided us with the following features:
Our Strategic Planning process will gather information and data, both internally (Lions Clubs, Board members, staff, clients, Health Professional Partners, Schools) and externally (Government officials, Health & Wellness Data, Oregon Business Community) and will utilize a process of identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and strengths to determine common denominators and underlying themes. We’ll assess ourselves honestly to improve in areas where we need to and will strive to utilize untapped resources that may be advantageous to the furthering of our mission.
And you can help us with this process.
Simply visit our website by clicking here and take a few minutes to tell us how we’re doing. Your input is important to us and will help us identify what we’re doing right and, even more importantly, where and how we can improve our services.
We’re also looking for OLSHF ambassadors that will share this survey with others, especially those that may not be familiar with our work.
Let me know if you’d like to help in this way and we’ll get you started!
