Strategic Planning

Looking for help in planning your organization's future? The Ohio History Connection’s Strategic Planning program can help.

  • Planning begins with identifying strategic issues, such as the need for a capital campaign, hiring staff, dealing with collections backlogs, attracting new members, and board relations.
  • Using SWOT methods (identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats), the Strategic Planning program helps a historical organization identify strategic issues, which become the core of a written plan.
  • Over a two to six month period, OHS Local History Office staff helps you identify your strategic issues and outline objectives to address them.
  • The program results in a report from which you can lay out a clear plan to help your organization chart a future.
