How Can We Focus on One to Two Years Out When Today is So Demanding?

Strategy requires making choices. When an organization develops and maintains the discipline of looking far into the future, options arise that are unavailable to an organization that is consumed by day-to-day operations.

Instead of continually reacting, an organization with strategic foresight can begin to develop a proactive advantage, which allows it to shape or influence the future, including emerging opportunities.

Do any human-serving organizations really maintain a focus on the future? Yes. What tools do they use and how do they staff it?

Learn how a human-serving organization is able to maintain a focus on the future during the Alliance for Children and Families' upcoming webinar Aug. 28 from 1-2 p.m. CT. During this webinar, Alliance member and Strategy Counts pilot site, Starr Commonwealth in Albion, Mich., will share its approach to keeping course and making course corrections with eyes set on the horizon.

The organization will share its measures and indicators for short- and long-term success.

Guardian of the Horizon: Tools for Strategic Foresight is presented by Martin Mitchell, president and CEO, and Elizabeth Carey, executive vice president and chief strategy and administrative services officer at Starr Commonwealth.
