Strategic planning is the method by which a community creates artifactual systems toward an extraordinary purpose. To that end, authentic strategic planning requires three things: (1) a strategic organization, (2) engagement in strategic thinking, and (3) a set strategic decisions made, in part by members of the organization seeking to improve itself. By definition, school districts are strategic organizations; that is, they are self-governing. However, to the detriment of student achievement and school improvement, strategic decisions are made in the absence of strategic planning. Donyall Dickey not only explains, in-depth, the components and processes of strategic planning, but he also provides the experience of practical exercises using artful connections to local conditions.
