Abstract:   A strategic planning process takes 3-18 months for most organizations. It requires a detailed project plan and well-managed implementation. The result of strategic planning is, of course, a program plan for the organization, which will likely spin off many smaller programs and projects. Since many public-sector organizations and most nonprofits have no special staff expertise in project management, it is no surprise that many of them suffer through the strategic planning process. Even when a plan is created successfully, many subsequently fail to implement successful programs. In this presentation, I will talk about my experience working with strategic planning in non-commercial organizations, describing common problems and critical success factors for strategic planning in public-sector and nonprofit agencies.

In the absence of profit motive, it can be difficult to assign economic value to public and non-profit sector initiatives. Despite these challenges, quantitative analysis of programs and projects are an important part of the sound financial stewardship of public resources. In this presentation, Michael will discuss the policy analysis process and the development of cost-benefit analyses for public sector projects. A special focus will be placed on the quantification of economic benefits using a variety of methods including market analogs, intermediate goods pricing, travel cost analysis, and hedonic pricing. The presentation will wrap up with a discussion of discounting, time horizons, and sensitivity analysis of quantitative benefits.
