3.1: Develop strategic options and prioritisation
The objective of this sub-phase is to focus on ‘operationalising’ the vision and objectives, turning these into concrete programmes and projects, with budgets, and with spatial location identified related to the spatial plan.
3.2: Establish process for continuous strategy development
The objective of this sub-phase is for the city to think through the institutional aspects of implementing the CDS. Up to this point, the focus has been on the human resources and capacities needed to develop the CDS. Now the focus turns specifically to the institutional aspects of implementation. It is important for the city to take a look at the entire project portfolio that will be implemented, as well as the staff capacity needed to do this.
3.3: Strategic action planning
The objective of this sub-phase is to develop a set of actions and projects that together have the potential to meet the objectives that have been set.
3.4: Promote the Strategy
The objective here is to make sure that there is broad-based knowledge and understanding of the strategy among relevant stakeholders, both at the local level and nationally. This is important to build support for cooperation and funding. A good document can help to facilitate further support.
