On November 18th, 2016 the preparatory phase of the Process for the Strategic Planning of MWL 2017-2020 began in earnest. This process was facilitated by the Business Consultant and Trainer, Fatmir Gjoni. His expertise has been most valuable for MWL in recent years whilst developing many aspects of the organization and in the previous three year’s with the strategic planning, which MWL has successfully accomplished by December. The Workshop involved all staff members and started with an introduction to the strategic planning. The process will continue to analyze both the internal and external environment of the organization. Typical steps in the strategic planning will include an analysis of the current state by all the staff members, as a preparation phase for the MWL Staff Week in February 20th -24th 2017. In this week the work will be focused on defining the future state, developing objectives and strategies to achieve the mission and vision, and achieving the MWL Plan for at least the next three years.
