Very organized lay-out. Easy to read. The author is very understanding of planning reality. A good piece of materials for those who are starting a new working term and got no ideas of what to do!

Great layout to teach the basics of Strategic Planning. This book is a great reference tool for anyone involved in the strategic planning process of an organization.

I haven't read any other books on Strategic Planning, so I cannot judge the content quality.

The writing, however, was wooden and lacking in any kind of wit, humor, or pedagogy. It boggles my mind that this was seen as a fit ...for dummies book.

On top of that, the book is marred by numerous proofreading errors - typos and grammar errors aplenty.

I gave up with only a chapter left - at that point it had been sitting at my bedside table for a good three months.

Good sections on the balanced business scorecard and deeloping report cards for projects (and social changes involing policy inplementation).

Informative, well laid out, easy steps, simple but very helpful exercises, useful to me in ways that are elementary, my dear Watson...
