1 – Introduction

The role and the mission of civil organizations such as societies, associations, clubs and unions have been an integral part of the country’s development in the recent decades. Such organizations are established by people who are involved in a specific field or who believe in the social, economic and political objectives and missions, and seek to improve the overall quality and to empower their members which lead to the development of their pursuit and the community as well. These organizations are the link between people and the government.

The Iranian Society of Consulting Engineers is the biggest civil society for consulting engineers in the country and not only it aims to defend the personal and collective rights of its members and help to develop the field, but also puts an effort into finding solutions by clarifying the issues to related government bodies such as “The Organization of Administration and Planning of Iran” in order to establish the needed legal and regulatory foundations.

Having members from tens of different professional fields in engineering, economics and administration has put the IRSCE in a place where, in order to better execute their mission, this society needs to clarify its outlook, goals, strategic and executable plans.

By laying down the strategic plans, the administration of IRSCE is able to select and design its path to growth and development. By consulting and cooperation with its members, the Society can organize their efforts into strengthening the field and improving the position of consulting engineers in the country and the world. It can also, advance its members’ influence on the development of the country and add to their individual and collective knowledge, skills and efficiencies.

In 2004, the administrative council of the society bestowed upon its selected committee to prepare a strategic plan for the society. The members of the above mentioned committee were as follows:

Dr. BaniAsadi, and misters Hamedi, Hosseini, Hoqooqi, Sayyar, Mashhoodi, Mirzakhanian, Noorbakhsh and Ayatollahi.

The committee commenced in cooperation with Mr. Mansour Sharifi as an expert and by pursuing the collaborative planning methodology. Among the way, the responsibility of preparing a “Consulting Engineers Professional Ethics Statement” was also given to the committee, and as a priority the remainder of year 2004 and year 2005 were spent on constructing this statement. In 2006, the subject of the strategic plan was brought to table again, and in 2007, after several meetings with the administrative council of the society, the outline of the plan was clarified. The outline included: The mission of the Society, the external opportunities and threats of the Society and the internal strengths and weaknesses of the Society. (SWOT) In addition, the necessary steps and methods in achieving these strategies were also made clear. In the preparation of this program, the committee first started with the studying and understanding of the legal regulations of establishing the IRSCE. Secondly, the mission of the Society was elaborated and subsequently via surveying the members of the administrative council of the society, the committee studied and categorized the external threats and opportunities which can affect the future growth and development of the Society. Afterwards, along with the consultation of the administrative council, the general strengths and weaknesses were studied. In the next step, according to the mission, opportunities, threats and strengths and weaknesses of the IRSCE, the general policies and strategies were explained using SWOT. Later on, based on the strategies, the policies, actions and the executable projects were selected and elaborated on. The above mentioned report was then surrendered to the administrative council in the fall and winter of 2007 in order to be checked and approved. The needed alterations were carried out and the final report is presented here to inform the members of the Society.

It is of outmost importance to remember that planning is something that would continue to change based on the changes of the environment and the organization. The presented report is the prepared product of the first round of planning in the Society and it is hoped to be more thorough and rich as it continues to evolve in the following years.
