The study intended to assess the process of strategic planning and strategic management in Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA).Ten top and middle managers were purposively selected and these constituted the study sample. The research instruments included; structured and unstructured interview guide as well as document analysis guide and informal discussions. The study found that ZINWA has a well established strategic planning and strategic management process. However implementations of the plans are hindered by inadequate funds and non existence of a standalone monitoring and evaluation section at catchment level which is a critical aspect during implementation of strategies. Recommendations included: resource mobilization efforts to enhance implementation of good plans at hand; to establish a monitoring and evaluation and a research section at catchment level.
