To clarify the overall purpose and desired results of the organization for the next five years, and how to achieve those results, AADA developed the strategic plan 2016-2020 in a “strategic planning” workshop. Participants of the workshop were chair and members of BOT, members of executive board, provincial project managers, middle management staff, and an expatriate. The workshop was facilitated by Ms. Zulaikha Rafiq, member of AADA BOT assisted by Dr. Ghulam Farooq Mujadidi, chair of BOT and Ms. Tyler Fox, as co-facilitators.
To formulate the strategic directions and approaches, a thorough analysis of context/situation and stakeholders was performed that was followed by SWOT analysis. The priority strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats have been identified. Defining AADA vision and mission, three strategic directions are settled for the next five years of the organization:
I. Geographic Expansion
III. Standardization of Institutional Capacity
To achieve the desired outcomes, strategic goals are clearly defined:
Goal 1: Strengthen organizational capacity in line with best practices for expanding geographic and service coverage.
Goal 2: Increase access of communities to integrated essential services that respond to complex needs.
In order to provide direction and enable monitoring and reporting to board of trustees and general assembly on strategic progress, a clear action plan was developed.
The document for strategic plan 2016-2020 will be developed and posted in AADA website soon.
