8:48:10 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave How have you been? #astdchapters
8:48:41 pm ErickTaft: @TerrenceWing Twitter API is running slow tonight. #astdchapters
8:49:12 pm dbolen: Q1 – ATL employs both executive board and board of directors to build a plan. Use SWOT as starting ppont #astdchapters
8:49:21 pm TerrenceWing: Q1 Nothing creative on this end. Twice a year at a brd mtg we brainstorm and solicit volunteers to make it happen#astdchapters
8:50:25 pm ErickTaft: Q1) Besides throwing darts? 🙂 We’ve used the SWOT analysis approach, flip charting ideas & funneling down. #astdchapters#ASTD
8:50:33 pm larrystraining: Q1 We have been working in a survival mode as opposed 2 an active plan. Existing plans were changed/dropped by new leadership. #astdchapters
8:51:15 pm dbolen: Q1 our challenge is building out the action steps & executing. Now have the president elect own the plan and 2x yr checkpoint#astdchapters
8:51:22 pm LandDDave: Q1- this is an area we need to improve upon. By the time one board gets rolling, their term seems to end. #astdchapters
8:51:50 pm LandDDave: Q1- we’re actually considering going to 2 year terms because of it. #astdchapters
8:52:13 pm dbolen: @larrystraining ATL’s last plan (2004-05) was all about getting well financially #astdchapters
8:52:17 pm TerrenceWing: @larrystraining That’s a good word for it. Survivor Mode made us lose 1/2 our membership. #astdchapters
8:52:36 pm ErickTaft: Q1) Also used CORE as a framework to organize flip chart ideas & SWOT analysis stuff #astdchapters #ASTD
8:53:06 pm cindyhugg: Some chapters who have done this have gone back.too long commitment RT @LandDDave: Q1- we’re considering going to 2 year terms #astdchapters
8:53:07 pm ErickTaft: RT @dbolen: Q1 our challenge is building out the action steps & executing. Now have the president elect own the plan and 2x yr checkpoint #astdchapters
8:53:29 pm dbolen: @LandDDave Q1 that’s why we’ve set an owner so the plan can run across terms or we look 2x/ yr and tweak #astdchapters
8:53:32 pm larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters
8:53:53 pm LandDDave: @TerrenceWing How did ‘Survival mode’ make you lose members? I have an idea but would like to hear more.#astdchapters
8:54:15 pm LandDDave: RT @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters
8:54:36 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen @larrystraining I like the idea of having a theme for the strategic plan #astdchapters #ASTD
8:54:51 pm LandDDave: I definitely think so. RT @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters
8:55:01 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave The chapter has been all over the place with programming and initiatives. We lost our value proposition.#astdchapters
8:55:33 pm dbolen: RT @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? don’t think so, it’s leadership#astdchapters
8:55:45 pm LandDDave: @cindyhugg good to know – thanks. #astdchapters
8:55:49 pm larrystraining: The lack of commitment to existing plans is dividing us. RT @TerrenceWing: Survivor Mode made us lose 1/2 our membership. #astdchapters
8:56:10 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Size of the chapter may limit the ability to execute a too ambitious plan #lessonlearned #astdchapters #ASTD
8:56:15 pm LandDDave: @dbolen Was the owner a formal board member? #astdchapters
8:56:35 pm cindyhugg: @LandDDave its especially hard on pres because becomes 6 year term. unless you do 2 yrs for all but pres position.#astdchapters
8:56:47 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave @larrystraining I think the demographic is more important than the size. But size probably matters a little(no pun) #astdchapters
8:57:13 pm dbolen: Q1 re: chapter size, think it’s related to stubborn leadership or more kindly a committed champion to see the plan along#astdchapters
8:57:39 pm LandDDave: I think smaller chapters have difficulty with leadership , not so much in terms of quality but quantity. #astdchapters
8:58:02 pm dbolen: @LandDDave yes, prez-elect is on the board of directors #astdchapters
8:58:03 pm ErickTaft: Q2) What tools or resources help you with the planning process? #astdchapters #ASTD
8:58:17 pm TerrenceWing: @larrystraining Is the existing plan a good one or one that should be abandoned? #astdchapters
8:58:36 pm LandDDave: @cindyhugg The President position has been a sticking point any time it’s been brought up. #astdchapters
8:58:46 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q2) What tools or resources help you with the planning process? #astdchapters #ASTD #astdchapters

8:59:14 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Coming from a small chapter, I agree that is something we struggle with. #astdchapters #ASTD
8:59:28 pm cindyhugg: RT @dbolen @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? don’t think so, it’s leadership #astdchapters
8:59:48 pm cindyhugg: KISS RT @ErickTaft: @larrystraining Size of the chapter may limit the ability to execute a too ambitious plan #lessonlearned#astdchapters
9:00:02 pm larrystraining: The plan gets lost after time. RT @TerrenceWing: @larrystraining Is the existing plan a good 1 or 1 that should be abandoned? #astdchapters

9:02:37 pm LandDDave: Q2- I’m actually looking at Google Docs right now as a possible tool to help with asynchronous planning. #astdchapters
9:03:46 pm larrystraining: Dropbox is a good tool as well. RT @LandDDave: Q2- Im looking at Google Docs right now as a possible tool to help w/ planning. #astdchapters
9:04:13 pm TerrenceWing: We use basecamp as a tool to help us plan an organize. We don’t use it to it’s potential though. Brd not tech savy#astdchapters
9:04:29 pm ErickTaft: Q2) Member/non-member feedback & surveys, CORE, conversations, good facilitation, & a clear vision of what is next#astdchapters #ASTD

9:06:44 pm LandDDave: @TerrenceWing I haven’t heard of Basecamp. Is it a web-based tool? #astdchapters
9:07:20 pm ErickTaft: @cindyhugg the collaboration features in the chapter portal is something we are exploring to use more #astdchapters #ASTD
9:07:24 pm dbolen: Q2 we used member surveys, past president input, our advisory council within SWOT. We even used ASTD new strategies as input #astdchapters
9:07:25 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave It is #astdchapters

9:21:56 pm dbolen: @TerrenceWing ATL launched our new web site on Sept 1, we didn’t go with the ChAMP solution #astdchapters
9:22:03 pm ErickTaft: @cindyhugg Yes, having a tool to help (esp with board turnover) could make it easier to execute. #astdchapters
