In creating a strategic plan, an organization analyzes current and historical trends and other factors to try and anticipate the future. The state of Iowa’s strategic planning process asks agencies to look three to five years into the future to lay out essential goals, strategies, and measures to ensure that it remains focused on achieving its vision and mission. Agency plans should address strategic challenges or opportunities related to their mission, programs and services. To the extent possible, agencies should align their plans with the enterprise plan, considering how they can contribute to achieving the Governor’s Goals. Agencies are required to review their plan on an annual basis, and, if appropriate, refine the plan.
