Strategic Planning Toolkit: Step 3.2

Match Resources to Strategies & Goals

The inventory of resources and assets developed earlier represents another critical component of strategy development. Each goal will reflect strategies for prevention, intervention, enforcement, or reentry. Each of those goals will require “how” statements—objectives.

The activities planned for each objective will indicate more specifically what will be done and will require staffing for both implementation and oversight. Forum plans are multi-year plans and include both short- and longer term objectives.

Implementation will involve roles for a range of stakeholders, including community and faith-based groups, and will be revised as conditions change. For each major activity planned, however, responsibility and accountability for completion must be assigned, drawing on the resources and assets identified throughout the planning process.
