From Ideas to Action: Budgeting for Strategic Impact – By Funkhouser & Associates

The budget is the single-largest lever governments have to affect change. Driving meaningful impact requires identifying strategic priorities, aligning your team, securing the resources, managing the execution, and communicating impact. The most successful governments integrate their strategic priorities into all operating activities to create an end-to-end strategic plan, resourced by a fiscally sustainable budget.

No matter how you currently budget, every government can make small and meaningful changes to improve the budget framework and align the budgeting process with strategic priorities. No matter how you measure performance, every government can take steps to collaboratively track and share progress on key indicators and drive community outcomes.

  • Best practices for strategic planning – from identifying priorities to cross-functional coalition building
  • How performance measures can be used to better inform budgeting and strategic program decision making
  • How to drive internal stakeholder alignment and community engagement around shared objectives and performance measures by sharing results in the right ways
