Aligning to the Strategic Plan

The final step in the development of the Action Plan included several rounds of facilitated discussions and internal assignments for senior leaders in the administration to: 

  • Test and confirm the feasibility of proposed actions emerging out of the Action Plan Workshops 
  • Identify opportunities to align and amplify the reach of existing County policies and programs
  • Help fill in the gaps in our understanding with additional details to strengthen the proposed actions

To ensure the implementation of the Action Plan, the Office of Management and Budget coordinated with the Mayor’s Division of Innovation and Performance to track progress on each of the actionsand match the actions to the objectives in the County’s Strategic Plan and provide recommendations for updates.
