Five-Year Strategic Plan
In July 2021, each service and department finalised their individual Strategic Plans which will be used as a basis for prioritising and focusing their work during the next five years. These plans were used as the basis for creating Towards Tomorrow – Ahu ana ki āpōpō; Visionwest Waka Whakakitenga’s Five-Year Strategic Plan for 2021 – 2025.
Towards Tomorrow – Ahu ana ki āpōpō is made up of five priorities for the wider organisation. More than words, these five objectives are a statement of intent – tauākī whakamaunga atu – that breathes life into the mahi of each of our wraparound services, guiding our steps as we build hope together in the lives of the whānau we support.
These objectives are shown in the illustration to the right. Towards Tomorrow – Ahu ana ki āpōpō can be viewed in full on our website, visionwest.org.nz/about-us/resources-publications/strategic-plan.
The care taken with formulating and sustaining a proactive Strategic Plan was recognised at the 2021 Westpac Business Awards where Visionwest took out the award for Excellence in Strategy and Planning (as mentioned elsewhere in this report). The award means a lot to all staff at Visionwest because it recognises the diligence that is given to creating and sustaining a workable plan, while understanding the need for such a plan to be flexible, especially in times such as we’ve experienced in recent years.
