What are we working on?

As a result of the June 2016 report out, Results Washington interviewed several agency strategic plan managers to explore idea of connecting agencies to share information about strategic planning efforts. There was strong interest and our recent survey confirmed that - with 30 agencies expressing interest. Results Washington will convene interested agencies in Q2 as a branch of our learning community design.

Results Washington will also reach out to the agencies that did not respond and offer assistance or technical support to help agencies align their agency strategic plans.
