What is Strategic Planning?

Strategic Planning is a process that seeks to set a strategic direction and plan to advance the organization’s interests and ensure long-term growth and sustainability.   It does this by setting policy priorities, developing action plans for continuous quality improvement on the micro and macro level.
 
The overall purpose of an organizational strategic plan is to support the organization’s business through continuous quality improvement. This primarily means developing a cascading process to engage and inform stakeholders including MCPNs, providers, employees, persons served, family, advocates, the community and the general public in our quality improvement activity. 
 
The function of the Strategic Plan is to provide a strategy and action items for the Quality Assessment Performance Improvement Plan (QAPIP) at Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority.  The Strategic Plan will serve as the guiding map for all internal and external quality improvement, including annual quality improvement and strategic objectives within the authority, the MCPNs, and providers, including responsibility assignments, performance measurements and evaluation.
