Strategic planning is a common practice in the corporate world. While many private‐sector organisations are now using strategic planning practices, public and nonprofit officials have only recently begun to embrace this concept. This is being done to enhance their organisation's ability to cope with an ever‐changing environment‐both external and internal. Since business models of strategic planning are designed to increase a company's profits and/or control its environment, such practices should be modified and adapted to properly “fit” the unique political and administrative environment of a particular organisation.
