Developing a truly effective Strategic Plan is a challenge for many governmental organizations, large or small. A good plan should be a meaningful guide to the longer-term results necessary to fulfill an organization’s vision of what it hopes to accomplish, or what type of community it would like to be. However, many so-called “Strategic Plans” are not very results-oriented nor linked to annual performance plans, so they are not very helpful in guiding an organization into the future. To simply state desired results in very general terms and then list some near-term projects to be completed is not a real plan for long-term success in providing better public service.
Knovos offers a highly effective solution for developing public-sector Strategic Plans that can guide agencies and ensure success. It clearly links planned outcomes to day-to-day program operations so that Strategic Plans can actually be operationalized, rather than just a wish list of good intentions.
