Legislation in the 1990s (SB 1082, Chapter 418, Statutes of 1993; AB 2711, Chapter 779, Statutes of 1994) required California State agencies to develop strategic plans, measurable performance objectives, and continuous improvement processes.
Strategic planning is critical to making state government programs and operations more efficient and effective. The strategic planning process produces fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it. A key byproduct of this planning is the strategic plan – a blueprint for future programmatic direction.
Strategic plans are revisited and revised periodically.
