Behind the Scenes with Strategic Planning, Part 1

Event Details
Thursday, August 24, 2017
2:00pm CST
Rural Health Innovations (RHI)

Strategic planning provides a focus for a network and a process to discern the key areas to work on, creating paths that will move a network toward its vision and fulfill its purpose. Meaningful strategic paths enable effective change by considering what actions are necessary in order to achieve the organization’s vision.

In this webinar, the presenters will describe how the product of strategic planning sets the stage for change and will provide tips for effective strategic planning. This presentation and discussion can support Network Development grantees in developing strategic plans for their grant projects. The accompanying strategic planning toolkit for Network Development grantees will be presented in the second part of the webinar series this fall.


  • Understand the role of strategic planning in setting the stage for effective change
  • Identify how to take advantage of the dynamic and iterative strategic planning cycle to progressively move toward your vision
  • Explore effective strategic plan approaches and methods

This webinar is open to current grantees of the Rural Health Network Development program. Connection details have been sent to eligible networks. For more information, please contact the Network TA team at
