Preparing for the future in a local public health organization

Academic Article


  • One of the most difficult issues in strategic planning in public health organizations is how to harness the energy generated in the process of strategic thinking and focus it on strategy formulation. This article is about one local public health organization’s experience in developing program priorities, building consensus about the priorities, and making operational the adaptive strategies relative to each program. The results should be useful to all public health organizations attempting to direct strategic thinking toward the formulation of practical and motivational strategies for the future. © 1998 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
