    Comp Plan Monitoring Document

    OK, I need some help. We are getting very close to finally adopting our new comp plan. The idea has been broached that in order to really see if we are making progress on the visions in the plan, we need to have some way to monitor that progress. Has anyone else ever come up with some sort of monitoring document for your comp plan? The document would include key indices we would rely on to judge our progress.

    I always recommend that a comp plan include an implementation matrix, that lists policies, who is responsible for implementation of that policy, and a timeframe for completion.

    It's a good tool for tracking progress, and keeping the responsible parties accountable for their efforts or lack thereof.

    Here's one example.
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.

    Has an implementation strategy in their master plan. it highlights priority, cost and agency responsible. You have to scroll down a ways to find it.

    Thank you! That is exactly what I was picturing in my mind but just couldn't put to paper.

    I sometimes just make a checklist of policies and strategies (or objectives, whatever you call them) that can be used at the annual or biannual review meetings that I routinely write into all plans and codes.

    It's typically called benchmarking, at least on the west coast. King County (Seattle) has a really good benchmarking program, which usually yields a lengthy report.
