Abstract

This paper examines whether strategic planning processes successfully assist municipal councils and staff in Ontario based on case studies of 11 municipalities in Ottawa-Carleton and the City of Burlington. The findings reveal that in many instances, strategic planning is being used successfully and the most important factor that contributes to its success is the leadership and commitment of council to the initiation and implementation of the plan.
