Targeting Gold guide to strategy.

Guide to strategy

World Archery has released Targeting Gold – The Archery Workbook to Developing a Successful Strategy, a guide for member associations to use when developing a successful strategic plan.

The document is available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Russian via World Archery’s extranet or as online flipbooks.

The tool helps member national archery federations analyse and asses their governance strategies and is based on responses to a good governance questionnaire, which found that approximately 35% of World Archery’s member associations had no plan in place. 

World Archery’s goal is to reach 100% implementation of strategic plans.
