Corporate Planning (CP) leads the structured, collaborative planning and reporting approach that supports Council, Executive Team and departments in building aligned, agile plans that cascade across a diverse set of programs and services. Aligning corporate and department business plans with Council's vision and goals operationalizes our movement toward our desired outcomes and supports strategic thinking in our day-to-day decisions.
Corporate Planning enhances informed decision making and performance by providing leadership, coaching, analysis and tools that enable integrated planning and reporting. Priority-based business planning and budgeting tools support the allocation and/or reallocation of resources, based on alignment to corporate and community priorities. Corporate Planning also leads monitoring, measuring, and reporting on progress toward our goals and outcomes.
