Strategic Plan

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is developing and institutionalizing a process that links a long-term vision and mission of the county with goals for five years, and performance expectations to a one-year 'action item' list for the County Board, management, and staff. 

Camden County's Strategic Planning Model includes:

  • Vision - value-based principles that describe the preferred future in 15 years
  • Plan - strategic goals that focus outcome-based objectives and potential actions for 5 years
  • Execution - focus for one year - a work program:
    • policy agenda for the Board of Commissioners
    • management agenda for county staff
    • major projects
  • Mission - principles that define the responsibility of county government and frame the primary services - core service businesses
  • Core Beliefs - personal values that define performance standards and expectations for employees
