The Board sets the strategic direction for the Trust, taking into account information and views from all stakeholders. Staff and patients are crucial in this, but information must also be sought from external sources. This chapter discusses the elements of a strategic plan; the importance of culture, behaviours, and values in driving performance; the benefits of a successful strategic plan, the difference between strategic thinking and strategic planning, and the difficulties and limitations of strategic planning.
