National Strategic Plan 2010-2013
The Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors (CIPHI) Strategic Plan provides direction to the members of the National Executive Council (NEC) and complements the work of the Board of Certification and Council of Professional Experience over the period of 2010 to 2013.
This document provides the outcome of discussions from a workshop held in Vancouver on April 30th and May 1st, 2010 with the members of the NEC and invited guests. Consideration of the CIPHI Members Survey results became a focus for establishing new directions for CIPHI. Accountability to our members and ensuring that members drive the agenda for CIPHI was identified as critical to improving member satisfaction. This is reflected in the strategic objectives, the key initiatives, and timeline proposed to achieve these objectives.
Two types of "work" exist in any organization:
1) Ongoing, day-to-day activities, referred to as "business-as-usual" in some organizations. This ongoing work to keep CIPHI "in business" is not reflected in this document, although some elements of ongoing work does appear in the plan to reflect the need to do it more consistently (e.g. publish NEC Executive meeting minutes on a regular basis).
2) New initiatives to achieve CIPHI's strategic objectives for 2010 – 2013. These strategic objectives are contained in Appendix A – Strategies and Initiatives 2010 – 2013.
The Strategic Plan is a living document and should be revisited every year. The intent of the plan is to provide continuity from one executive group to another over time and ensures that the context for change occurs in a thoughtful, pro-active manner. The plan is used on a regular basis to measure against results and to ensure progress is being made.
