Abstract ―​

Strategic planning holds paramount importance for educational leaders as it serves as a guiding framework to set clear objectives, allocate resources efficiently, engage relevant stakeholders, and ultimately enhance educational outcomes. This literature review delves into the pivotal role of strategic planning in educational leadership, highlighting its ability to align organizational goals with the institution's mission and vision. It underscores the benefits of strategic planning, such as fostering a shared vision among stakeholders, facilitating data-driven decision-making, and optimizing resource allocation. The review scrutinizes various strategic planning models, including Bell's and Kaufman's, assessing their strengths and limitations. It underscores the necessity of continuous monitoring, evaluation, and adaptation to maintain relevance and effectiveness amidst evolving challenges. Employing a scoping review methodology following Arksey and O'Malley's framework supplemented by other guidelines, the study maps out strategic planning aspects in educational leadership literature. The findings enrich understanding regarding the significance of strategic planning, best practices, and the imperative for ongoing engagement and adaptation in educational leadership contexts. Ultimately, this study offers valuable insights for educational leaders, policymakers, and stakeholders engaged in strategic planning processes within educational institutions.
