JCDA Strategic Plan
For most of 2020, the Jefferson County Development Authority (JCDA) board members and staff – with assistance from the consulting firm Capacity Partners of Bethesda, Md., – worked to create a four-year Organizational Strategic Plan. The strategic planning process included phases of data collection, analysis, community stakeholder interviews, a community survey, board retreat, and development of goals and strategies. The resulting strategic plan features a revised organizational mission statement, defines five core values, identifies seven goals for 2021-2025, and outlines several strategies for each goal. This plan will serve as an important tool to prioritize work efforts, better allocate resources, and measure progress of the JCDA.
To successfully implement the strategic plan, JCDA staff will develop annual action plans which will document specific objectives, responsibilities, timelines, and performance measurements for achieving them. Both the four-year strategic plan and the annual action plans will work in alignment with and support the Envision Jefferson 2025 Comprehensive Plan.
