Strategies are broad actions moving you towards your vision, purpose and outcomes. Strategies normally provide direction for the next two to five years and take more than one year to accomplish.

Strategies start from 'where the community or organization is' and move towards the outcomes wanted in the future. The strategies recognize and address the challenges that prevent communities or organizations from achieving their outcomes.

Once a challenge has been identified and an initiative undertaken to achieve change by engaging others, generating a vision, establishing values, developing outcomes and measures, the identified strategies can be implemented by developing action steps, roles, costs and timelines.
