Several days ago, we’ve conducted our Annual Board Strategic Planning session. The Board Directors took two days – Saturday and Sunday – and spent them in a conference room working on how to deliver better services to the membership more effectively.
During the first day, we’ve had all Committee Chairs present their processes and we had a productive discussion on how to make them more efficient.
The second day started from the review of the Chapter Balanced Scorecard (BSC) in order to assess the past year performance and identify opportunities for improvement.
Finally, we’ve performed mapping of the outputs from BSC to our Strategic Chapter Framework to identify any tweaks we need to apply to it.
As our Strategic Planning Process was implemented last year, we’ve tested it throughout the year. Upon review we found that our initiatives and metrics were on target and only some minor changes needed be added to some of the initiatives.
We’ve also found that more focus should be given to the approved initiatives by some of the owners vs. other items that were not part of the plan or remit.
The Board has agreed that the session was a great success that would help us to advance our mission to help technology professionals to achieve their professional and personal development goals.
