  1. Work and activity planing


Strategic planning is a way of thinking, acting and learning that can enable organizations to better achieve their goals and secure their survival amid the uncertainty and complexity of their internal and external environment.

Strategic planning presents an approach to dealing with serious challenges and making the most opportunities. The strategic planning process allows organizations to develop and determine their long term vision, direction activities and performance. It usually takes all-inclusive view by looking at the ”big picture” of the what, the why, and the how of the organization, but it also leads to specific targeted actions against the dictatorship in Eritrea.

Strategic planning can thus be defined as, ” a deliberative, disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it.

The Eritrean – Swedish Partnership is a visionary partnership based on a thorough rational analysis on the Eritrean political case in general and the the unity of the Eritrean opposition forces in particular.

Vision and analysis aim to reinforce each other, making strategic planning a flexible and practical guide for decision making and resource allocation.
