The Rule of Law Initiative in Ukraine recently completed a strategic program and organizational development planning process. Comprised of three one-day staff retreats, the process took place between October 2006 and May 2007. Alla Kos, Executive Director of the RADA Institute (an ABA/CEELI legacy organization), facilitated the retreats, assisting staff in conducting SWOT analysis, developing relevant goals and objectives, and preparing strategic frameworks and action plans.
By identifying new programming and funding priorities, the strategic retreats energized the pursuit of additional funding opportunities and the diversification of funding sources. The Strategic Program and Organizational Development Action Plans will continue to be reviewed and revised by the Ukraine staff on a quarterly basis to ensure that the program is meeting its goals and adapting to the changing landscape in Ukraine.
