Much has changed in the community banking industry over the past few years. Enhanced regulatory scrutiny, a new administration, continued mergers and acquisitions, new capital rules, increased competition… the list goes on. With all these moving pieces, strategic planning has become more critical than ever. To ensure continued success and profitability, every community bank board and management team should engage in intentional, “big picture” planning and formalize the process and results into a well-written strategic plan. This webinar will provide an overview of the strategic planning process and address its scope and substantive considerations. In addition, it will cover how to prepare an agenda, outline various techniques used in drafting the written plan, and address the elements of a well-documented strategy.
