Developing a Strategic Plan

Posted on

We were very pleased asked by AVERT to support their thinking process as they develop their next 5 year Strategic Plan.  As a starting point we explored the team’s thinking around AVERT’s work and reason for being- working globally on HIV and AIDS prevention.  Using Theory of Change we discussed the importance of personal and organisational assumptions, highlighting how much we need to be aware of these as they frame our view of reality and social change.  The AVERT team developed their theory of change over a number of weeks and IMA provided continuous support.

The next step was facilitation of the team’s analysis of AVERT as a learning organization using a number of organizational assessment frameworks. They mapped their knowledge flows and identified types of knowledge sharing that AVERT wants to access and provide, both internally and externally, to support and improve the work it is doing.

The workshops have allowed staff to voice their personal perspectives of how the organisation operates, bringing in institutional memory as well as fresh ideas, while all the time fostering ownership of the joint process.  Both workshops were very well-received by the small team, and provided a much needed safe space in which to explore organisational rationale, roles and functions; and contextualise institutional memory and new directions.
