Discussion on The Importance of Strategic Thinking for Grassroots Organising in Africa
October 18, 2022
Over the years, political organising continues to fail in terms of delivering development dividends to citizens. This has forced many organisations to find new ways of doing development differently and one of these ways is through grassroots organising. Citizens are more than ever eager to invest in nurturing power through constituency building in a quest to identify their problems and find sustainable solutions.
Strategic thinking and planning are powerful tools in enabling these organisations take into account the long-term value and consequences of taking a particular approach. Though sometimes merged, understanding the difference between these two and leveraging them positions grassroots organisations to anticipate future trends and implications, readily pose future scenarios and articulate credible pictures and visions of possibilities that will create sustainable value.
But how can we make grassroots organising better? We need to think and plan strategically.
