Guidance and systemization of experiences
Local Government Associations (LGAs) across the world are in many stages of development and thus show many differences. Some have clearly described their medium and long term strategic goals and what their association stands for. Others are developing on a day-by-day basis, without a clear vision on their future and without a strategic plan, consequently looking more like not wholly guided missiles than well organised and controlled institutes. However, most of the time the themes and difficulties LGAs are confronted with in daily practice are similar, as are LGAs members’ basic needs and expectations, and the necessary approaches and possible solutions to meet them. This document can be used as an easy-reference manual in developing a systematic strategic planning system. It is especially tuned to local government institutes and LGAs whose leadership wishes to improve and strengthen the structure and performance of the organisation. The manual includes a complete set of practical guidelines. We are fully aware of the fact that planning projects may differ in complexity from country to country and even within one and the same organisation. So the guidelines described will not always be relevant for everybody in all cases. For the sake of completeness however, we have tried to be as extensive as possible. The interested LGA leadership can pick out whatever they think helpful to start or improve the strategic planning process.
