A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week – George S. Patton
NAR held its first ever Strategic Planning Idea Exchange this morning. It was well attended, with approximately 20 round tables packed with members ready to share ideas on the future of real estate, REALTORS® and the organization.
Those in attendance had the opportunity to participate in three group activities at their respective tables:
1. Game changing thoughts on the real estate industry.
2. Game changing thoughts on public policy.
3. Game changing thoughts on positioning the REALTOR®
They also heard four reports from the Strategic Planning Committee’s small work groups on demographics, organization structure, technology, and value proposition. I actually had the opportunity to present the value proposition talking points. Members also shared some of their thoughts on the small work group’s work. You can access the slides on SlideShare.
Information collected from this idea exchange will be used by the 2012 Strategic Planning Committee in their work next year. Many attendees commented that this was a great opportunity for members to be involved in the planning process. By all means the idea exchange was a success!
