Stop! If you're thinking about reading this book because you want to "check the box" and just get a strategic plan done and over with, then Not Another Pretty Binder is not for you. However, if you want to avoid creating another pretty binder, doomed to a dust-collecting life on an office shelf and instead create a straightforward, transparent plan that will be accepted at all levels of your organization, be easier to implement, be less challenging to measure and - as a result - be more successful, then this book is for you. Not Another Pretty Binder draws on some tough work done by great leaders from private enterprise and government institutions who decided they needed to improve their strategic planning processes. The book is broken down into the steps necessary to create a successful and actionable strategic planning initiative that can be sustained. You'll get boardroom strategies addressing leadership's visionary thinking and operational tactics for handling the day-to-day business functions.
