INVENTORY your assets; what are the “raw materials” we have to work with in developing your master plan?
UNDERSTAND your vision and goals; where do you want to go, by when, and at what cost?
ASSESS the gaps; what improvements to your assets, changes in asset management, or changes in policy will get you from where you are to where you want to be?
APPLY regulations; how will local, state, and federal regulations affect what needs to be done to successfully implement your master plan?
SOLICIT input; what do you and the people you answer to (critical stakeholders?) think about the direction your master plan is going?
DEVELOP alternatives; how many viable roads lead to a potentially successful outcome?
IDENTIFY opportunities and risk; what do you stand to gain by implementing the master plan alternatives and conversely, what types of liabilities do the plans create?
ASK the hard questions; which of the alternatives most effectively addresses your goals and visions while being environmentally responsible and responsive to your stakeholders?
