Planning For Your Organization During Hard Times

Firstly, you need to identify the problem peculiar to your school/organization, create a plan simple and clear plan.

Your new plan should be as clear as asking what’s important and what isn’t. Sit down and write out “What must happen now?”, “What should not happen?” Focus on mission-critical items only.


Here are some tips for creating a plan:

  1. Don’t be too hard on yourself to get everything right at first. Usually there isn’t a road map during crisis .There aren’t clear cut directions or prescriptions for success in hard times.
  2. Be willing to be flexible and make adjustments from time to time, evaluate and re-evaluate your plan.
  3. Think long-term but plan short-term. You always want to think of the future and where your organization ultimately ends up. But, during a crisis, it’s just not practical to make solid plans when the situation is constantly changing. So, have long-term goals, long-term guidelines, but only put short-term, actionable plans into motion. Short-term plans, ranging from a few days to a few weeks, will also help insulate you and your people from disappointment as things invariably change.
