Strategic planning

What?  Strategic planning means analysing your past and present situation, and thinking ahead to develop a project or an organisation. In other words: where you are now, where you want to be, and how you are going to get there.

Why? Not only to secure the survival of your organisation or project, but also to ensure it reaches its full potential.

Once you have completed these actions, you can say that you have achieved PQASSO at level 1, level 2 or level 3.

Who is PQASSO aimed at?
