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

9:00:48 pm dbolen: Q2 for tool – a facilitator, aiming for simplification and 2-3 year time horizon #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
9:05:09 pm dbolen: @TerrenceWing basecamp is a great tool #astdchapters
9:05:19 pm ErickTaft: RT @LandDDave: Q2- looking at Google Docs right now as a possible tool to help with asynchronous planning. #astdchapters<- It helps!
9:05:41 pm cindyhugg: Try google groups, or consider using ASTD’s chapter portal (if on ChAMP) @LandDDave possible tool to help w/ planning.#astdchapters
9:06:03 pm LandDDave: @larrystraining I love using Dropbox personally. I haven’t used it for collaboration yet. #astdchapters
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
9:08:03 pm LandDDave: @cindyhugg We use the Chapter Portal for our website (and like it a lot). I don’t care for the collaboration tools though.#astdchapters
9:08:10 pm TerrenceWing: @cindyhugg We are planning on moving to the National Portal next year. In contract till May though #astdchapters
9:08:42 pm ErickTaft: Q3) What tools or resources do you wish you had? #astdchapters #ASTD

9:09:51 pm dbolen: Q3 wished we had better records versus the tribal knowledge #astdchapters
9:10:23 pm TerrenceWing: Not sure. Honestly, the National Portal does the same stuff. I would start your search there #astdchapters
9:10:37 pm larrystraining: Don’t forget, there’s an app for that! RT @cindyhugg: Ditto! RT @LandDDave: @larrystraining I love using Dropbox personally. #astdchapters

9:12:57 pm dbolen: @jrrowenhorst evening #astdchapters

9:13:48 pm ErickTaft: Q3) Maybe an online tracking tool for developing the plan and tracking execution would be helpful. #astdchapters #ASTD

9:15:52 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft Q3 perhaps a scorecard? not sure the average member cares deeply but some communication ’bout future focus is good #astdchapters
9:16:22 pm ErickTaft: RT @TerrenceWing: Q3 The problem is not what we have but I wish the brd members would use it efficiently and effectively#astdchapters
9:16:44 pm LandDDave: @TerrenceWing 1/2 since the National portal is free, we actually started it before our contract ran out. #astdchapters
9:17:03 pm larrystraining: I am passionate about teaching technology. RT @TerrenceWing: Q3 I wish the brd members would use it efficiently & effectively #astdchapters
9:17:31 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen @cindyhugg I’m liking the scorecard idea — could also incorporate CORE & be used on a quartly basis.#astdchapters #ASTD
9:17:59 pm LandDDave: @TerrenceWing 2/2 It enabled us to have the old site running with “We moved!” on the home page- helpful since the URL changes. #astdchapters
9:18:22 pm LandDDave: Welcome to the chat! RT @jrrowenhorst: Hi everyone! Sorry for the tardiness. #astdchapters
9:19:34 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave We will be moving to the portal but I do believe they are going to be announcing some changes at ALC#astdchapters
9:19:51 pm larrystraining: @LandDDave Our chapter has moved away from the National Portal because they do not understand it. #astdchapters
9:20:47 pm TerrenceWing: @larrystraining Who is they, National or the chapter? #astdchapters
9:21:33 pm LandDDave: @larrystraining There is a pretty steep learning curve – there are more user friendly interfaces. #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
9:22:03 pm TerrenceWing: Tech paralyzes the Brd. I created a website clone of our existing website in 30 min no budget to reconnect their spine.#astdchapters
9:22:15 pm larrystraining: The chapter. They created a flash based site instead. RT @TerrenceWing: @larrystraining Who is they, National or the chapter? #astdchapters
9:22:19 pm LandDDave: good question. RT @TerrenceWing: @larrystraining Who is they, National or the chapter? #astdchapters
9:22:36 pm TerrenceWing: @dbolen What was your reason for not going with Champ? #astdchapters
9:23:09 pm LandDDave: actually, Jeanette Lindsey, who just left ASTD was the person who ran it at National. I haven’t dealt with her replacement.#astdchapters
9:23:51 pm cindyhugg: Great idea! @ErickTaft: @dbolen liking the scorecard idea — could also incorporate CORE & be used on a quartly basis.#astdchapters
9:23:53 pm LandDDave: I found looking at the websites of other chapters using the national portal to be my best learning tool. #astdchapters
9:23:54 pm TerrenceWing: @larrystraining Ouch! Flash is so hard to update. They thought flash was simpler than the Nat Portal? #astdchapters
9:24:18 pm larrystraining: Jeanette was Incredible and no matter what questions I had we would work them out immediately. She will be missed.#astdchapters
9:24:19 pm ErickTaft: Q4) Who owns the strategic planning process in your chapter? #astdchapters #ASTD
9:24:31 pm jrrowenhorst: btw, I’m VP of membership for the Great Plains chapter (Sioux Falls, SD). #astdchapters

9:25:09 pm ASTDNWA: @cindyhugg I may help our 2nd President this year build one 🙂 #astdchapters
9:25:18 pm larrystraining: And it eliminates Mac and iPhone access. RT @TerrenceWing: @larrystraining They thought flash was simpler than the Nat Portal? #astdchapters
