This paper discusses William F. Crittenden and Victoria L. Crittenden's article about the factors that most influence the strategic planning process in nonprofit organizations. The writer explains some of the key findings of their research: for example, the larger the organization, the more manual the process, and nonprofits that are external in focus tend to more precisely organize their strategic planning process. The writer also presents important inferences from the research findings, and concludes by emphasizing the need for nonprofits to have an external focus, to select strategic objectives that can generate high levels of ownership internally, and to circulate the strategic plan for comments and approval, in order to accomplish their strategic objectives and mission as an organization.
