Client Need: Strategic guidance and expert facilitation to help the Department create its annual strategic operations plan.
Solution: The State of Colorado is changing its annual planning and budgeting from a zero-based system to a performance-based process that requires all executive branch departments to adopt Lean tools and practices that will result in more accountable, customer-focused performance management. Creating a strategic plan can be a daunting task for many businesses – or government agencies. The BrandWerks approach™ first focuses on vision. To help determine that vision, BrandWerks led a planning session with the department’s commissioner and division directors. At our session we fine-tuned the Department’s vision and mission, and identified key planning initiatives by divison. BrandWerks then provided guidance to help the Department formalize its plan for presentation to the Governor’s office and state legislature.
