WEBINAR | Strategy Yin and Yang: What should we be doing with our school’s strategic plan? 
Date: April 16, 2020
Time: 12:00pm
While school leaders are immersed in pandemic response management, most strategic plan management has come to a screeching halt. We know this is not a long-term solution, and we wonder if it is even the best choice for now. In this webinar, we explore ways to add new nimbleness and flexibility to the strategic process by integrating crisis planning and strategic planning. Yin and yang. The short view and the long view. We will look at ways to build strategic resilience and agility in processing the challenges and opportunities of this time. We will talk about ways to test a current strategic plan’s compatibility with a new reality and where and how adjustments can be made. We will overview what a strategic plan for COVID-19 might look like and how to apply the strategic thinking tools of catalytic thinking, assumption writing and testing, and scenario planning. By building capacity for strategic resiliency and agility, school leaders can integrate crisis response with strategic planning and position their schools to thrive, not merely survive post COVID-19.

Presenters: Christina Drouin, Center for Strategic Planning
