Contrary to some notions, planning is not dead. It remains a fundamental component of a high-impact, sustainable organization. However, planning is definitely changing. Traditional approaches and principle have fostered new means of answering the fundamental questions every group must answer: what difference do we want to make, and how will we make it?

This workshop will provide core principle of planning that are universal – authentic engagement, participatory decision-making, form-follows function – and provides interesting new strategies for moving groups through these issues. The session will give broad overview of planning approaches and how to decide what approach makes sense. It will also introduce specific tools that groups can use to organize and guide their planning efforts.
