The 2021 Strategy and Performance Management cohort is a three-month program that helps cities, counties, and towns draft and implement a strategic plan quickly. This rapid-learning framework will help local governments with limited resources quickly build a strategic plan – a long-term vision of where they want to be in the future, as well as the steps it will take to get there. Their strategic plan will serve as the roadmap in prioritizing goals and projects, as well as looking at important metrics to ensure they are on the path to success.
To further support cohort members, we will match local government strategy experts with each participant in a mentor-mentee relationship. In addition, strategy experts from ClearPoint will also serve to guide participants to jumpstart their strategic planning efforts. Within weeks, participants can expect to have a strategic plan that they can report on and relationships they can lean on to push through this year and future years to come. Plans will be actionable, measurable, and relevant – designed to help governments adapt to the challenges facing their communities.
The cohort will be made up of a single group of up to 20 participants and will be hosted through an online collaboration platform, with supplemental live calls, remote coworking, and webinar training sessions. Cohort participants will work as peer groups to support one another’s project development and will be matched with mentor experts from around the country along with ClearPoint’s Customer Success team to develop a plan utilizing the ClearPoint strategic planning software, which is included at no additional cost.
