Step 1: Getting Ready

The first step in strategic learning is to lay a strong foundation for the process by the people you bring together, the strategy and outcomes you identify, and the research you review. In strategic learning, getting ready is more than just your best ideas about strategies and their outcomes – it is also about reviewing existing research and models to identify what is truly achievable from your strategies. Picking the right research to guide your strategic learning sets you up for significant, meaningful improvements to your strategy.

Goal: To articulate achievable and meaningful strategies and outcomes.
