Strategic Planning Efforts Launched at Leadership
Over 60 CSNO school nurse members and professional health care partners converged in Sacramento October 17, 2014 to launch CSNO Strategic Planning efforts. The efforts were facilitated by Dr. William Cook, CEO of The Cambrian Group and nationally renowned organizational strategist. Participants explored common organizational beliefs, illuminated core ideas, and championed a draft CSNO mission statement.
Phase of II of Strategic Planning process will pick up at the CSNO Annual conference when Dr. Cook continues to expand planning efforts with school nurses. Dr. Cook will give a Strategic Plan overview and then train school nurses to develop and strategize elements of the plan. Grassroots teams will be formed to address the areas within the plan.
In May of 2015, the Strategic Planning Leadership team, will reconvene to initiate implementation efforts.
