About UC IPM
The 2006 Strategic Plan presents the goals and strategic directions the UC IPM Program will pursue to respond to the changing pest management needs of Californians. The Plan reflects the input of a range of stakeholders both internal and external to the organization, as well as an analysis of relevant economic, social and policy trends.
By reflecting on past accomplishments, reviewing challenges and opportunities, and relating current issues to research findings and trends, the plan provides a starting point for problem solving and strategy development at multiple levels. It is intended to help stimulate new thinking to enhance statewide responsiveness to emerging pest management issues.
The 2006 Strategic Plan has been developed with the participation and commitment of the Program’s management team, staff, field advisors, University and agency partners and other stakeholders, supported by the consultant team of Moore Iacofano Goltsman, Inc. (MIG).
The Strategic Plan incorporates the UC IPM Program’s vision, mission, values, and guiding principles that serve to shape the goals and strategies and direct long-term planning for the organization. The Plan includes six elements:
The preferred future for the Program.
The core focus areas of the Program.
Personal and organizational characteristics that the organization is committed to achieving.
Core IPM concepts that serve as a foundation for the efforts of integrated pest management.
Directions for change.
Specific initiatives that will be used to implement the plan.
