The Project• SCO received FGDC funding to create a statewide aerial imagery business plan• Hired a consultant to help with information gathering and plan development• YOU are critical to the process
Desired End Results• A plan that addresses both short-term (2015) and long-term (2020+) needs• A process that can be applied to other data themes in the future• A “waypoint” for all of us to navigate towards
What does a business plan look like?• What do you want?• What are the steps needed to get there?• Who will do the work?• What will it cost?
Why a Business Plan?• Leaders and managers expect it when you ask for resources• We must cooperate to survive• How can you develop a budget without a plan?• 2015 will sneak up on us quickly
