Featured Planning Tip

Remember the vision

A vision is the driving force behind organization growth. A motivating vision can inspire commitment to and passion about an organization. While defining a vision, ask some fundamental questions:

  • What is the core concept of the organization?
  • Why does the organization exist?
  • How do we envision our future?
  • What goals will realize our dreams?
  • What are our dreams?
  • "Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream of things that never were and say why not." - John F. Kennedy

    When you don't know what might happen, imagine what might happen.
