Strategic Planning

Ontario University Collaborative

December 2013

  • Understand the value of having a plan
  • Create/draft a strategic plan
establishing a strategic plan
Establishing A Strategic Plan
  • There are three main categories of risks that clients must acknowledge before attempting to sustain a best-value environment
  • These areas include:
    • Performance risk (vendor fails to perform)
    • Political risk (resistance from internal/external parties)
    • Program risk (activities that jeopardize sustainability)
  • To mitigate these risks, the following should be performed:
    • Performance risk (implement the PIPS process without deviations)
    • Political risk (create and follow a strategic plan)
    • Program risk (create and follow a strategic plan)
mitigating risk
Mitigating Risk

Performance Risk

  • Vendors may not know how to accept accountability
  • Vendors may not know how to perform in best-value environment
  • Agency does not implement correctly or makes changes to the process

Political Risk

  • Program is not legal
  • Process is wasting money
  • Process is not being fair or process only picks favorite contractors
  • Process is not open and it limits competition
  • Non-performing vendors who don’t like the program
  • Internal personnel that do not want to change

Program Risk

  • Agency loses discipline once program has been successful
  • Agency expands the program too rapidly (speed is our enemy)
  • Agency does not buy into the basic concepts and theory
the strategic plan
The Strategic Plan
  • A strategic plan is essential to the long-term success of a best-value program
  • The strategic plan must be established before beginning a pilot program and should be documented in writing
  • By having the strategic plan in writing, all decisions can be minimized by simply following the outline of the plan
  • The majority of users do not have a strategic plan (as simple as they sound, clients have a difficult time creating and following them)

  • Overall Objective of Agency (include how BV ties into this)
  • Goals of the BV Program
  • Measurements (that will be used to assess if goals are being met)
  • Tactical Plan (detailed plan, schedule, actions to be performed)

what is a strategic plan
What is a Strategic Plan?
  • Roadmap
  • Where you’re going
  • How you plan to get there
  • How you will know you have arrived
  • How to help the next group reach their destination
  • Helps the team align on the plan
  • Creates a living document for everyone to reference
  • Helps everyone to know if they are on track
  • Communicates where you want to be after a specific period of time and how someone can contribute
  • Especially helpful when project has a short duration and expects quick deliverables
  • Can be read by anyone (even if not affiliated with the project) and know what is going on at any point

  • At the end, how will you be able to tell people or prove to them that you have achieved this goal?
