Project READ's Handbook Documenting a Coalition's Strategic Planning Process.
Hillman, Jan; Moore, Deby
Based on a case study of Project READ (Reading Education for Adults in Dayton), this handbook presents a strategic planning model for use by nonprofit groups. Its emphasis is on developing strategic cooperative plans. The handbook is organized in three main sections. The first section describes Project READ, its history, personnel and funding, operations, goals, and current activities. Throughout the section, lessons from Project READ's experience are drawn and planning objectives are suggested. The second section is an overview of the strategic planning process. It includes a description of the process, a model, reasons for strategic planning, benefits of planning, factors that characterize successful strategic planning, use of a facilitator, planning committees, and getting started. The third section is a detailed description of Project READ's strategic planning process. Ten appendixes include the following: four references; lists of Project READ coalition members, planning committee members, and advisory committee members; Project READ's strategic plan; and a resource list of eight publications.
