The Canadian Institutes Public Sector Strategic Planning
Venue: Sutton Place Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Aug 10, 2009|
Municipal, provincial/territorial and federal governments, departments and agencies across Canada have never been under more scrutiny, with increasing political and community expectations to deliver the highest levels of accountability, transparency and performance. A strategic plan is a vital tool in assisting government and public sector organizations in this task and in ensuring that â€œvalue-for-moneyâ€ can be measured, quantified and reported. But many organizations are finding that a good strategic plan is also one of the more complex and challenging areas and are struggling with developing and implementing them.
The renewed emphasis on the integration and alignment of plans with budgets, reporting and performance measures means it is more important than ever to get strategic planning right. Without a sound strategic plan, organizations spend most of their time putting out fires, decision making is ad hoc at best, and they lack an accountability framework. But identifying where you want to go and how you are going to get there is no small feat.
Attend The Canadian Instituteâ€™s Public Sector Strategic Planning: Increasing Accountability, Transparency and Performance conference to get information on the top issues, solutions to your challenges, and to network with other public sector organizations. Designed in consultation with your peers, this conference provides a unique and timely opportunity to learn from othersâ€™ experiences, share resources, explore best practices, and hear about successes across all levels of government in Canada.
