Strategic planning helps leaders and decision makers of a local government, determine what it intends to be in the future and how it will get there. It involves developing a vision for the city’s future and determining the necessary goals, priorities, and action strategies to achieve that vision.

UMC works closely with leaders and decision makers to co-develop their strategic plans and draw a “big-picture” document that identifies efforts and resources to achieve a clearly defined vision. Such strategic planning can be undertaken for the entire city or for even specific departments or sectors.
