Strategic Planning for Better Outcomes
Strategic planning is the process through which an organization envisions its future and develops the necessary strategies and actions to achieve that future. In today’s rapidly changing environment, AAL considers the life of a strategic plan to be approximately three to five years, with regular monitoring and course adjustments. Our integrated strategic planning model ties together your people, resources, and outcomes assessment. We also believe the involvement of the senior leadership is crucial to a successful planning process and the implementation that follows.
AAL has helped numerous health professions schools and colleges with the strategic planning process. Our experts have experience doing strategic planning in medicine, dentistry, physician assistant programs, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and more.
