Don’t miss the webinar “Simplified Strategic Planning – What All Agencies Can Do” on November 15 from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm Eastern. This will cover ICMA Practice Area 13: Strategic Planning.
Over the last five years, local governments have seen reduced revenues, cuts in personnel, frozen wages, unfunded mandates, and plenty of uncertainty about expectations for future budgets. Changing citizen expectations and advancements in technology has caused professional managers, more than ever, to ready themselves and their organizations to meet these challenges. But how do you accomplish that state of readiness? What is meant by the term “strategic planning” in today’s environment? Does it vary depending on the size of the organization? What are some “practical best practices” to guide today’s manager? This session has a panel of “professional practitioners” to discuss these and other related questions. Preparation for the 2013-14 budget has already begun in some jurisdictions. This is a “must attend” session for anyone grappling with these and other questions involving strategic planning today.
