The Unido Approach
Vision Building & Action Planning
Vision building and action planning are not one-off processes but develop in feedback loops through the life of a cluster initiative. Starting with a discussion on the results of the diagnostic study, cluster stakeholders formulate a shared vision for their future cluster performance or the overall cluster development path, which will be periodically reviewed and, if necessary, refined with time to take into account changes in the cluster or related framework conditions. Action planning then relates to the translation of the vision statement into a realistic and achievable development strategy over time and can be understood as a roadmap. Action plans are also revised periodically and by all cluster stakeholders based on a sound monitoring and evaluation framework.
