Strategic Plan Development
Our planning team lead 2 senior leadership workshops which included planning and conducting exercises to identify and confirm the Pittsburgh Regional Transit’s (PRT) vision, mission, strategic themes, goals, objectives, performance management, financial impact, and an action plan. The information gathered in these workshops was supplemented by external and internal analysis to identify customers, markets, and trends affecting the region. Also included in the plan was data gathered from previous strategic management documents, departmental responsibilities, organizational charts, system-wide performance management information, and relevant regulatory and legislative impacts.
The team then designed and produced a plan document that incorporated graphic and editorial design elements to organize the information in a way that is engaging and easy to understand. We also incorporated infographics and relevant photos to enhance the message and allow for easy consumption. The final report is available to read on PRT’s website.
Strategic Plan Implementation
E. Holdings Inc has been contracted to continue work on the Strategic Plan through the implementation phase. Our team will provide advisory and facilitation capacity to develop an Action Plan that includes multiple approaches, functions, and outcomes through the first foundational year and into the second of the five-year Strategic Plan. Activities include a deliberate roll out plan designed to build foundational infrastructure, internal processes, capacity, and foster acceptance and willingness to actively support and participate in meeting strategies, objectives and goals outlined in the Strategic Plan. Effectively, the goal is to provide direction, strategy management, alignment and buy-in with partners, integration of the Strategic Plan, clearly defined roles and responsibilities, determine and implement measurables, and determine critical paths and deadlines.
