Strategic Action Planning Based on a strategic action planning foundation, the toolkit's primary theme is to encourage those responsible for the jail workforce to begin serious consideration of what must be done to address both current and future personnel-related needs. [...] each issue - recruitment, retention, and succession plamning/leadership development - is addressed through the framework of a four-step approach that can be tailored to meet any jail's unique circumstances. * Step 1 builds the foundation by establishing leadership commitment, identifying needed resources, assembling a collaborative guiding group, and linking everything with the jail's vision and mission. * Step 2 is the "doing-your-homework" phase, where related information from both inside and outside of the jail is analyzed - such as staff surveys, agency turnover data, retirement projections, community employment, and economic indicators, etc. * Step 3 calls for developing a strategic action plan to address needs uncovered during the previous analysis. * Step 4 is the point where the plan is implemented and evaluated in a manner designed to provide ongoing feedback that enables adjustments to be made along the way.
