2. Who should initiate the strategic planning process?

3. Assuming it is management’s responsibility to develop strategy, consider the following:

a. What role should the Board then have?
b. How should the strategy be presented to the board?

4. Are strategy, vision and purpose part of the same process, or is strategy a means to a vision or purpose (ends)?
