eXtension Continues Strategic Planning

In January, a group of extension professionals and stakeholders met in Dallas, TX to begin updating eXtension’s Strategic Roadmap. Focus was given to understanding customer expectations with regard to today’s Internet, issues Cooperative Extension faces to compete effectively in the knowledge marketplace, and feedback received from the strategic evaluation conducted last fall. As a result, critical success factors and certain key priorities were identified.

Earlier this month, eXtension staff returned to Dallas for an additional work session developing key priorities and strategies for moving forward, which will be shared with Cooperative Extension directors and administrators at the National Extension Directors and Administrators (NEDA) meeting in March 2011.
