This dissertation explores strategic planning in federal

agencies. The research seeks to uncover difficulties

federal agencies experience when making strategic plans, to

explore the relationship between these difficulties and the

degree of publicness of the agencies, and to uncover and

describe techniques used by federal agencies to overcome

difficulties. The research is important because strategic

planning has gained renewed interest in federal government

organizations stimulated by the Government Performance and

Results Act of 1993 and there are few empirical studies on

strategic planning based on the public character of these

organizations. The results present the difficulties and

techniques reported by planners in eighteen separate

federal agencies and show a relationship between the

degree of publicness of the agency and the difficulties

encountered in strategic planning.
