CRKN undertakes strategic planning every three to five years to guide the direction of the organization, build on past accomplishments, and plan for future innovation.
Strategic planning at CRKN occurs in four phases.
CRKN facilitates member and stakeholder consultations, issues surveys, and holds one-on-one meetings to gain feedback and insights in preparation for strategic planning. The results of these consultations are collected into a consultation report, which is distributed to CRKN members.
The CRKN Board holds a one-day strategic planning session and uses the consultation report and other findings to discuss the mission, vision, and strategies. Based on Board input, CRKN prepares a draft strategic plan outline.
Using the outcomes from the consultation report and the Board of Directors meeting, CRKN engages members and stakeholders through a second round of consultations which normally occur at regional meetings throughout the country. Following an additional review based on this feedback, the draft strategic plan is prepared.
Following Board approval, CRKN circulates the draft strategic plan to members in advance of the meeting of the members. At the meeting of the members, the strategic plan is ratified by members.
The strategic planning process is overseen by the CRKN Executive Committee.
