Be certain to pick up a copy of Liana Downey’s book Mission Control. As a consultant, board member, and former executive director, I’ve participated in a lot of strategic planning processes, and her book will be an invaluable resource if you’re completing a planning process without a consultant. And if you are looking for a consultant, her book will help you understand the questions to ask to get a consultant who will truly challenge your organization to focus for greater impact.
