In March, the City of Iowa City engaged ECICOG to assist with the development of a five-year strategic plan. The multifaceted planning process included one-on-one interviews with City Council members, brainstorming sessions with the City Council and department heads, and a council prioritization exercise. In additional to identifying external opportunities and threats, the new plan outlines the long-term vision and accompanying strategies, as well as specific action steps for the implementation phase. While Iowa City’s planning process reflected the complexity and size of their organization, ECICOG staff have a variety of planning and facilitation tools that can be adapted to any size of organization. Contact Executive Director Karen Kurt at email@example.com for more information on strategic planning and council goal-setting.
