ERD Strategic Planning Process

Posted on 30 June 2022

ERD is undertaking a Strategy Renewal process in 2022, setting the vision for the next 3-5 years. On May 5 and 6, the ERD Board, Members and staff met for a two day strategic renewal workshop. It was great to have most attendees in person for the first time in over two years!

The workshop advanced the strategic planning process, and was also a great opportunity for people to get to know each other better, and for new Board Directors and Members to learn more about the organisation. With this in mind, the two days centred on building relationships and identifying collaborative ways forward.The objectives were:

  • To enable people relatively new to ERD to gain relevant insights whilst providing a refresher to those who have been involved for longer.
  • To engage participants in the strategy renewal process and in doing so make meaningful progress.
  • To include learning opportunities and an opportunity to strengthen relationships.

These two days built on the progress made at the ERD Stakeholder Consultation gathering, which took place on March 24. Priorities, structure and culture were all examined to see a possible way forward. We aim to finalise our strategic plan in the coming months, and will share it across the ER network.
