CHESS KENYA STRATEGIC PLAN

2010-2025

Designed and produced by Mary Kanyua- Chess Kenya Committee Member

Preface

In line with this 15 year plan of having Grand Master(s) in fifteen years, the Development

Policy is segmented into the following:

 Short term plans

 Middle term plans

 Long term plans

Short term plans

 Establishment of an annual running League.

 Increase of chess activities by clubs, individuals and other institutions in their own

capacity.

 To have chess in the co-curriculum activities in schools as per the ministry of

education.

 Have club manage their own affairs in the branch levels. (Activating branches in other

provinces)

Middle term plan

 Through the school competitions, train and develop at least 30 international masters.

 Emphasis will also be upon clubs to develop both individual and collective strength.

Establish tournaments for the highest rated players in Africa with our participation of

over 30 players.

 Train and equip as many managers, coaches trainers and arbiters to manage the leagues

and tournaments.

Long term plans

 Establish Grand Masters

 Have Chess in Kenya in the Educational curriculum in schools

Subject to improvement the above plans will only be a pipe dram if we sit and wait, but if we

work with a singular purpose the mid term plan will easily collaborate with the long term plans.

This policy is expanded into specific goals, time-bound targets activities and tasks. Monitoring

tools have been developed to measure progress and improve on results. The future is bright.

Chess Kenya Chairman

President of Africa zone 4.2

Mr. Andolo Ambasi

Introduction

Chess Kenya has faced financial challenges that have hindered some of our activities from

taking place. Chess Kenya executive members have had brilliant ideas to tackle this problems

thus I came up with an idea of this strategic plan that will be a guide to putting our past and

present problems behind our backs and focus on our future goals and activities.

The importance of this strategic plan 2010-2025 is as follows;

1. It enhances ability to prevent problems, to encourage planning that is aided in

monitoring and forecasting responsibilities to people who are aware of the need of

strategic planning

2. It has resulted to better decisions from group based ideas thus it is likely to be drawn

from the best available alternatives.

3. It improves the partners understanding of productivity-reward relationship thus

heightening motivation.

4. Gaps and overlaps in activities amongst individuals and groups are reduced as a

strategic plan clarifies the differences in roles

5.

available options making us more likely to accept these decisions.

SWOT ANALYSIS

This is an internal analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the association and the external

opportunities and threats that affect our running of the institution. A SWOT analysis diagram

is supposed to guide the association on which type of strategy shall be used.

also invite you to give their views, ideas and proposals to improve chess in Kenya.
