Organizational Development and Strategic Planning Session

Eighteen members of the Leadership Council attended an Organizational Development and Strategic Planning Session for The Virginia Partnership for Out-of-School Time (VPOST) on March 31st and April 1st at the Hotel Sierra in Richmond, Virginia. Janelle Cousino from the Afterschool Technical Assistance Collaborative and Katie Campbell from Skye Consulting co-facilitated the planning session. 

A history map was created on the first day to summarize the experience in the room, and to recognize the diverse backgrounds that are a part of the team.  We were amazed to learn that collectively we had over forty years of experience and expertise.  Organizational assets, political and state policy environment and the role of VPOST were also discussed.  Potential outcomes and organizing the team for effectiveness through the development of a formal structure was the focus of the session.  Through identifying potential strategies, action steps, and time frames for achieving outcomes and goals, a work plan was developed. Both facilitators are continuing their work with VPOST to aid the Director in producing a draft Strategic Plan and Year-One Work Plan.  They are providing ongoing guidance regarding organizational structure and governance as well.  Katie Campbell will facilitate a review of the draft plans with the leadership team on May 18th and produce a final version of the Strategic Plan and Year-One Work Plan for adoption by the Leadership Team.
