GCP Chairmans Forum reviews strategic plan progress and next steps

Progress continues as the Greater Cleveland Partnership works to complete its new three-year strategic plan by the end of the year.

Last week, about 100 business leaders from GCP member companies heard an update on the plan’s current status and next steps from Board Chair Rick Chiricosta, chairman, president and CEO of Medical Mutual (right in photo), and GCP President and CEO Joe Roman at the GCP Chairman’s Forum.

The plan is shaping up around four areas of focus: Places with Impact; Talent that Fuels Growth; Driving Business Connectivity; and Environment to Start, Support, Scale,
and Stay.

Following meetings with groups that included the GCP Board, key stakeholders and subsets of GCP members, four task teams were assembled for a deep dive into each priority area to narrow the priority, determine metrics and better understand GCP’s role in each area.

Next steps include sharing feedback from each task team at the GCP Board’s third-quarter meeting this Wednesday.

Over the next few months priorities, metrics, and role of GCP and partners in the core initiatives will be finalized with the plan to be published and shared with the broader community after the Board gives its final approval in December.
