Strategic Planning

PHAB's Glossary of Terms defines strategic planning as "a disciplined process aimed at producing fundamental decisions and actions that will shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does what it does. The process of assessing a changing environment to create a vision of the future; determining how the organization fits into the anticipated environment, based on its mission, strengths, and weaknesses; then setting in motion a plan of action to position the organization," with the strategic plan focusing on a range of agency level organizational goals, strategies and objectives, including new initiatives.

*These strategic plans were evaluated against the PHAB Standards and Measures Version 1.0 by NACCHO Staff. These individuals, based on their understanding of the standards and measures, have classified them as meeting the PHAB requirements and being high-quality documents. These have not been approved by PHAB or any PHAB site visitors for the purposes of meeting relevant standards and measures.

**The Public Health Advisory Board (PHAB) requires health departments to complete three prerequisites before applying for national accreditation: a community health assessment (CHA), a community health improvement plan (CHIP), and an agency strategic plan. According to PHAB, completing these documents lay the groundwork for health department programs, policies, and interventions, and the remainder of accreditation documentation. Ideally, these documents work together to identify health issues in the community, work towards prioritized health goals, and identify health department and community roles. NACCHO staff have reviewed several complete sets of prerequisite documents and have determined that they are high-quality in that they individually meet the requirements set forth in the PHAB Standards and Measures Version 1.0 and that they work together cohesively to address the needs of communities and organizations. They have not been approved by PHAB or any PHAB site visitors for the purpose of meeting relevant standards and measures. To view a list of high quality sets of prerequisites, click here.
