Strategic Planning.

Benefits of GIS Strategic Planning.

The benefits of a strategic plan for your geospatial investments cannot be overstated. ​

Government and businesses are expected to harness spatial data, software, and technology to meet the information needs of diverse stakeholders and customers. A GIS strategic plan builds a bridge between the goals and objectives of the organization and the investments and roadmap needed to achieve them over a defined time horizon.​

Sanborn’s Proven GIS Strategic Planning Model.

Sanborn has a successful GIS strategic planning process that is flexible and adaptable. The two-part process starts with a strategy that defines the vision, goals, and strategic objectives, followed by a series of business plans (one for each strategic objective) that lay out the activities, milestones, costs, and benefits. Sanborn tailors the process and resulting recommendations to customer-specific concerns and priorities.
