BUSSELTON AFL Strategic Planning Workshops

INVITATION TO ATTEND STRATEGIC PLANNING WORKSHOPS – AFL
The Busselton AFL clubs are entering into an exciting phase of development and invite you to come and have your say into the future strategic directions for our sport.
To be successful, the association and clubs need to have a collaborative approach to Strategic Planning. All stakeholders are provided with an opportunity to be involved in the process. This guarantees that the final plan is balanced and reflects the objectives of the organisation as a collective (and not a vocal minority).
Various matters typically considered as part of the planning process include:
 Governance and management
 Finances and fundraising (including grants and sponsorship)
 Facilities/equipment
 Volunteer workforce
 Performance Pathways
Strategic Planning for sporting clubs or organisations is:
– a way to gain consensus – sharing and working towards a vision for the future which can develop cohesion amongst members
– a tool which enables club members to focus on specific outcomes
– a tool that allows and encourages an opportunity for ownership by the club
– an opportunity for development of the club’s purpose and autonomy
– a dynamic and ongoing process where goals are ‘time framed’ to ensure a sense of achievement
– an avenue for the club to define its challenges and prepare to address them
– a management tool to be used for effective interaction with external bodies.

BUT Strategic Planning is not:
an unrealistic ‘wish-list’ which are beyond the capabilities of the club to achieve in the timeframe considered to be the solution for the problems of the club.
