The Corporate Plan writing season has arrived!

Corporate Plan

Make your corporate plan a priority

We hear you. While still responding to the challenges of COVID-19, reviewing your Corporate Plan may not be at the top of your priority list or at least not something welcomed with open arms.

But now is the time to write and potentially overhaul your Corporate Plan and make it fit-for-purpose for 2022/23. This will not only help you to meet regulatory requirements, but also bring it to the next maturity level of your organisation’s performance culture and management capabilities.

Rewriting your Corporate Plan is a guide that provides you with some food for thought as a non-traditional, more creative approach to compromising this strategic planning document that has become for many a mere tick-in-the-box exercise.

In our experience, many Commonwealth agencies struggle with the development of their Corporate Plan. This can be for a range of reasons but often results in a document which does not truly showcase:

  • what the particular agency is all about
  • why it exists (its purpose)
  • what it does for me (the citizen), and
  • how it is tracking (performing) in achieving its purpose and objectives.

We know this can sound disheartening but having worked with multiple Commonwealth agencies, we can assure you that it does not have to be this way!

So how could you make it a more engaging and practical document? And why is it worth your effort?

Taking the time to think about the design, content and structure of your plan now will provide a range of benefits, starting from providing greater clarity about what your agency and its exceptional work to informing through its performance measures evidence-based decision-making.

Get started and don’t leave it too late.
