The mission of the program is to provide recreation and homework assistance programs to children ages 7 – 9. You do not need to write a plan, but instead write a short paper that explains how strategic management works answering these questions: What resources would you use to develop a plan? Are there risks? What might they be (list 5 and explain why they are important considerations)? List 5 ways you would measure the success of the program and why you would use them.
