IPIC'S STRATEGIC PLAN
IPIC's Strategic Plan will guide us in achieving our mission and fulfilling our vision. Our goals are our expected results, and for each goal we have identified key objectives to guide our work as well as tactics that we will employ to achieve our goals. The strategy is presented in an aligned, linear fashion; however, it is important to consider that each goal, objective and tactic reinforce and enhance other elements of the strategy, and should be seen as operating in a dynamic system. This plan is our roadmap, with goals and objectives anchored by our vision, mission, and values.
