Periodic strategic planning is critical to long-term program success. Taking program "snapshots" is a method that helps program teams make mid-course corrections within the strategic planning cycle. This much shorter process (6-8 weeks) is particularly effective for small program areas or project teams. Advantages are 1) the ability to obtain qualitative information quickly from clients, colleagues, and administration; 2) optimal working environments for planning by bringing people in to the process sequentially rather than concurrently; 3) a widening circle of people becoming champions of the program; and 4) its fast pace, generally 6-8 weeks from beginning to end.
