Gathering the information to get a clear idea of how your club us doing now is the first step in this process and we looked at that yesterday.
Now that you are armed with that snapshot, how do you develop a vision for the future that everyone can contribute to and be happy with?
Again it comes down to taking the club apart on paper and defining how each piece will look when the new vision is realised. So for example you might want to focus on the game itself and decide that there needs to be a greater effort to move towards a performance bowling green; you might want to increase membership or widen your club’s customer base to boost the club’s finances and long term success prospects.
Whatever your long term goals and vision for the club, the final part of the puzzle is to create a plan to help you achieve your goals and I look at that in more detail here.
