Gila County Five-Year Strategic Plan Updated for 2020
Gila County Five-Year Strategic Plan
Updated -- and Adopted -- for 2020
Why Strategic Planning? Gila County is an extraordinary place to live, work, and play. This did not happen by accident. Making Gila County extraordinary takes planning. Our previous strategic plan served us since 2010, and as the environment in which we operate continues to change, so must we. Gila County recognizes the value in providing the organization the tools necessary to develop long-range plans, goals and measurements that will lead to success. These plans will provide a foundation for budget development and drive us to continue to improve our services and processes, in a fiscally responsible and transparent way.
From January-through-Jun of 2019, a diverse team of 16 Gila County staff met to develop the Gila County Five-Year Strategic Plan. The team was comprised of staff from 14 different departments and offices and represented both the Globe and Payson areas of the county. The team created new values, vision and mission statements and completed a SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis assessed strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, and provided an understanding of the environment – internal and external – in which the county operates. From this, the strategic plan was developed. The strategic plan is driven by the Vision and Mission Statements, with cascading goals and corresponding measurements throughout the levels of the organization. The Gila County Board of Supervisors reviewed and approved each step of the strategic plan - and officially adopted the entire plan in July of 2019.
