Strategic Plan 2010-2014: The Goldmark Agenda
BERK worked with Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark and DNR’s Executive Management Team to craft a roadmap to guide the agency’s actions over five years, building on and making real the positions and priorities that Commissioner Goldmark articulated in securing the support of Washington voters. Through its six goals, the Strategic Plan emphasizes the need to protect and create jobs for Washington residents and the need to protect Washington’s natural environment.
In support of the strategic planning process, BERK conducted stakeholder outreach, including online surveys and facilitated statewide public open houses inviting comment on the Draft Plan. BERK staff facilitated project meetings of the Executive Management Team and assisted DNR with staff engagement at the 1,200-plus employee agency. Each action was assigned a lead and timeline for initiation to ensure accountability.
