The UMFC Board accepted the strategic pillars that were drafted by managers and the Board at their June Board meeting. These will now be publicly displayed at each of our offices and used by each service in their annual planning. It was a very positive process with a great deal of consensus about what our priorities should be.
I will report against the strategic pillars in future meetings in order that the Board can measure progress. There will be significant changes happening in our sector over the next three years (the span of our plan) and it is vital that we track our performance during this time.
What I like about our process is the direct linkage between our overall goals and services activities. This helps guide a collective sense of purpose and direction as well as encouraging ownership in our successes.
