Strategic planning is an organization's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. It may also extend to control mechanisms for guiding the implementation of the strategy. Strategic planning became prominent in corporations during the 1960s and remains an important aspect of strategic management

The process is usually long, boring, and largely without results unless you count a five-inch-thick vinyl notebook collecting dust on a shelf as an achievement. Don t mire your board and executive in writing a plan that is tedious, dull, and loaded with administrivia - three adjectives that could have been invented to describe the typical strategic plan. This book offers another way - The Seven Outs.

Inside, you will meet the board and executive director of Breezy Palms Charter School, a fictional school that is in trouble with its authorizer. You will gain an insiders perspective on the root causes of the schools problems, as well as an overview of The Seven Outs. The ending may surprise you.

In the second part of the book, the author unpacks The Seven Outs so that your school will have a step-by-step recipe for conducting strategic planning. Once completed, the board and executive will know what the students are to accomplish and how well they are to accomplish it, and the board will know how to evaluate the outcomes.

This was a very well-written book, easy to read (which is atypical for strategic planning and management books!) and very relevant to my charter school board. I recommended that every member read it. It is one of the most effective descriptions of the purpose and goals for charter planning that I have ever seen. My board was already well down the path of governance vs management, but it would have been tremendously helpful to have had this earlier in the process.

One of the best books I have read on strategic planning for a charter school. Absolutely practical!

The book is a quick and informative read on why boards exists, the strategic plan and a wonderful "how to" guide.

"The Seven Outs" by Dr. Brian Carpenter presents the reader with an intriguing story about leadership within Charter Schools. Following a similar writing style as Patrick Lencioni, Carpenter first invites the reader into a fable, which could be mistaken for real-life drama. As the Breezy Palms Charter School faces an unexpected hurdle, the school's recently-hired chief executive - Paul - steps up to the plate to lead this struggling school. He is able to guide the organization through a very simple, yet profound method for strategic planning: The Seven Outs. As the fable comes to a conclusion, Carpenter then provides further in-depth analysis of the Seven Outs - how to incorporate them, and why they are important. This book is a must-read for those in leadership within Charter Schools. However, Carpenter's work goes beyond usefulness for Charter Schools alone, as the principles he submits are transferrable to any organization that is serious about strategic planning. Mastering the Seven Outs will ensure that you will not be left out of the strategic planning process in your organization.

With his latest book, Dr. Carpenter has encapsulated how to be an effective charter school leader. Those who accept the responsibilities of Board and executive leadership can truly take-away many strategic ideas and guidance from this short read. By positioning the reader, first as an observer of a hypothetical Board, then deconstructing the pitfalls of poor governance and clearly presenting effective governance principles, The Seven Outs, is an invaluable addition to a Board library.

Very informative. Direct and to the point. Gives great focus. If someone is going to be on a board or wants to start their own charter then this is the book for you. It is a wonderful book.
Our district used Dr. Carpenter for our school board training and I enjoyed his presentation. So obviously, when I saw that he'd published a book, I quickly purchased it. I read dozens of books on school leadership each year. However, it's rare to find a book that is specifically for charter schools. Dr. Carpenter's years of educational experience gives the advantage of comparing traditional districts and charter schools. I've passed my copy on to a principal in our district and she's sharing the same positive experiences.
