Strategic Planning in Healthcare
Strategic planning in healthcare enables the development of a high-level roadmap to guide the organisation in its planning, prioritisation and allocation of resources. Optimal strategic planning commences with the development of a clear mission, vision and organisational values. Successful strategic planning is inclusive of staff, consumers and external parties. It should be futuristic but realistic, and aligned with operational planning including budgeting processes.
