Strategic planning is an activity used to set priorities and focus energy and resources for an organization. The effort produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. Effective strategic planning articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful. The result of the effort is a strategic plan used to communicate the organizations goals, the actions needed to achieve those goals and all of the other critical elements developed during the planning exercise.
The GIS Colorado Board developed a strategic plan in 2021 to document the vision, mission, and goals of the organization. The Plan also includes key objectives to accomplish the goals. Each year the GIS Colorado Board reviews the Plan and develops concrete actions that moves GIS Colorado toward our goals and objectives.
