How can leaders use strategic planning to strengthen their public and nonprofit organizations? In this fourth edition of his perennial bestseller Strategic Planning for Public and Nonprofit Organizations, Bryson provides the most updated version of his thoughtful strategic planning model and outlines the reasons public and nonprofit organizations must embrace strategic planning to improve their performance.
Introduced in the first edition and refined over the past 18 years, the Strategy Change Cycle--a proven planning process used successfully by a large number of nonprofit and public organizations--is the framework used to guide the reader through the strategic planning process. Bryson offers detailed guidance on implementing the process, and specific tools and techniques to make the process work in any organization. In addition, he clarifies the organizational designs through which strategic thought and action will be encouraged and embraced throughout an entire organization.
In addition to updated examples, new cases, and additional information on boundaries, distinctive competencies, Actor-Network theory, Bryson will creat an instructor's manual with sample syllabi, PowerPoint teaching slides, and additional cases.

Praise for Strategic Planning for Public and Nonprofit Organizations
"This is an immensely valuable resource for leaders, professionals, researchers, and other participants in public and nonprofit settings. Anyone professing competence in public and nonprofit management needs to know what Bryson says about strategic planning and management."
—Hal G. Rainey, Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor, University of Georgia; author, Understanding and Managing Public Organizations, Fourth Edition
"John Bryson recognizes that strategic management is what is called for today—meaning strategic planning must be linked to leadership, stakeholder involvement, the budget process, system redesign, and performance management. This is a tall order, but John's updated book delivers the goods and comes at just the right time!"
—Beverly Stein, president, Public Strategies Group; former chair, Multnomah County Board of Commissioners (Oregon)
"This volume provides a practical theory of how to accomplish the political work of leading organizations through strategic change. The theory is a comprehensive synthesis of research on strategic planning and management. There's no better single reference point for choosing an approach to strategic planning and carrying it through to a successful conclusion."
—Michael Barzelay, professor of public management, London School of Economics and Political Science; coauthor, Preparing for the Future: Strategic Planning in the U.S. Air Force
