Political parties today are challenged to engage in democratic and inclusive decision making within their structures to strengthen their legitimacy and the confidence of their members and citizens in parties.  

NDI developed this document to offer political parties a participatory methodology for strategic planning that can be adapted to different contexts, while encouraging them to engage in democratic decision making that better includes party members. The document presents the success stories of the National Action Party of Mexico and Radical Change of Colombia, which both used this methodology to reflect on internal processes, strengthen themselves and seek to reconnect with citizens. 

Although the document was primarily developed for political parties, it also includes resources and step by step activities for NDI staff for providing strategic planning technical assistance with political parties in their countries.

=====================

Hoy día los partidos políticos enfrentan el reto de tomar decisiones democráticas e incluyentes al interior de sus estructuras para fortalecer su legitimidad y confianza ante la militancia y la ciudadanía. 

El NDI desarrolló este documento con el objetivo de acercar a los partidos políticos una metodología participativa de planeación estratégica que les permita adaptarse a diferentes contextos, a la vez que les motive a tomar decisiones democráticas que incluyan la participación de la militancia. El documento expone los casos de éxito del Partido Acción Nacional de México y Cambio Radical de Colombia, que utilizaron esta metodología para reflexionar, fortalecerse  y buscar reconectarse con la ciudadanía. 

Aunque el documento está dirigido a partidos políticos, también es una guía que incluye recursos y el paso a paso de las actividades realizadas para el staff del NDI que busca brindar asistencia técnica sobre planeación estratégica a los partidos políticos de su país.
