For those of you working on putting together a strategic plan, below are some examples we’ve pulled together for you — one of which is actually the old version of AIA National’s. Although out of date, it will show you how a plan can be a one-page, graphic document (right up the architect’s alley!). There is also a second strategic plan that is a VERY short, simple piece. The Texas Society of Architects Strategic Plan is also provided as a reference.
The questions to answer in a strategic plan are:
- Who are we?
- What is our mission?
- What is our vision? (read a description of the difference between mission and vision here)
- How will we achieve that vision?
- And, lastly, how will we know if we have achieved our goals? What is the measurement?
It is NOT an easy process to get on paper, but it can really help to focus the work of the chapter and help make best use of resources. Feel free to call if you have any questions about preparing a strategic plan.
