Planning For the Future

“If you dont know where you are going, any road will get you there.”
– Suggested by the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

A plan outlining expectations for your organization two, five, or ten years into the future is like a map guiding you toward a destination. Without such a map, you might wander up and down roads, never reaching your destination, never attaining your goals. Indeed, you may not even know what your goals could be.
