Flexibility in Strategic Planning to Respond to Changing Organizational Needs

Julie Baker, Hennepin County

We’ve learned over the last year that change will continue at a rapid pace. Linear strategic planning processes that take years to complete and implement no longer match the speed of technology and organization changes. The Hennepin County IT Strategy Management team modified its planning process to be nimbler by utilizing short-term, mid-term and long-term planning activities to help IT leaders manage resources and strategy progress – while ensuring IT has the flexibility to shift work to the county’s top priorities. Find out how incorporating agile techniques aide response to changing needs in an organization and explore our strategy management playbook, plus the activities used to manage short, mid, and long-term planning needs.
