Organizational performance comprises the actual output or results of an organization as measured against its intended outputs (or goals and objectives).
A strategic plan describes the purpose, or mission, of an organization, the major challenges it faces and the goals and strategies it will use to meet those challenges. Organizations develop strategic plans so that everyone, from the Chief Executive Officer to “front line” employees, will know what is important to the organization and what it is trying to accomplish. Some strategic plans also include a “vision” for the organization, which is a statement of a desired future that all employees can work to achieve together.
The DC Courts develop a new Strategic Plan every five years to set priorities and provide direction for the future. The Courts’ governing body, the Joint Committee on Judicial Administration, approves the Plan after it is developed with broad input from persons and organizations who conduct business or work in the Courts. Approximately 4,000 individuals and groups helped create the Courts’ most recent Plan by participating in surveys and focus groups.
Entitled Open to All, Trusted by All, Justice for All, Strategic Plan of the District of Columbia Courts, 2013-2017, the Courts' Strategic Plan lays out the Courts’ vision and mission, as well as goals and values.
