Strategic Planning Expert - Indonesia

Chemonics International Inc. seeks a Strategic Planning Expert for the USAID-funded Indonesia Marine and Climate Support (IMACS) project. This project provides technical support for improving key marine and fisheries sector components with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF), local governments, coastal communities, and the private sector.

The Strategic Planning Expert will facilitate an exercise in strategic planning with a team of independent technical experts working on an area of national government policy-making in Indonesia.

Specific requirements
The expert will assist the team with the following:
  • identifying and ordering the most critical strategic issues with opportunities for linking across programs/directorate generals;
  • identifying strategic goals based on government mandate, interest of the MMAF, and goals that integrate across program areas;
  • prioritization of objectives; and
  • preparation of a chart or diagram which maps a path between the present and a vision for the future. The map is to take into account organizational capacity and resources. In the process, the team is to clarify their recommendations as to how to focus resources, maximize effort and exploit opportunities.
  • Identify internal organizational changes required to implement the strategies.
  • Experience working with the public sector (rather than just businesses which are focused on economic goals).
  • Proven experience applying strategic planning tools (such as SWOT and Force-field analysis) with large groups across a wide variety of issues.
