How Does The Bisvision Public Sector / Non- Profit Edition Work?
Bisvision is a strategy planning toolkit that you use to take a structured approach to developing a vision and strategy for your organisation.
The kit includes:
- A simple process diagram to follow
- Question cards for each stage of the process to prompt your thinking
- A computer application with a built in strategic plan template that lets you record your strategy then export it into MS Word
- A carry bag
Bisvision takes you through a 3 - step process as you put together a vision and strategy for your organisation:
- Where we are
- Where we want to be
- How we get there
There are two sets of cards for "Where we are" – The Scan and Assess cards.
There's one set of cards for "Where we want to be" – The Vision cards.
There are two sets of cards for "How we get there" – the Plan and Execute Cards.
Each of the 174 cards in the Bisvision toolkit asks you a question. Your job is to decide which questions are relevant for your organisation; and then come up with answers that make sense for you.
Bisvision asks you questions rather than giving you answers, so you'll come up with a vision and strategy that is uniquely tailored to your organisation.
Bisvision Scribe Software
As you discuss each card, you record what you discuss in the Bisvision Scribe software that comes with the toolkit. When you've worked your way through the process, you can then export the content in the Bisvision Scribe as a Microsoft Word or plain text file. This means you come out of your planning session with a written strategic plan for your organisation.
