Strategic planning is widely used by organisations, as it is an integral part of strategy. The present study tackles the topic of strategic planning as it is developed by public and non-profit organizations and provides an extensive review of literature in the area of the development and role of strategic planning within strategic management and the way it is adopted by public and non-profit organizations. For the purposes of this paper, five models of strategic planning have been discussed with the belief that they describe better the models that can be approached and developed by public and non-profit organizations in the area of sport. This article aims at partly contributing to the theoretical discussion concerning the ability of organizations to integrate and deploy strategic planning. For this study we examined a non-profit sport organization in British Columbia, Canada. The authors propose that public and non-profit sport organizations should develop their own model of strategic planning, which may help them to think and act strategically.
