Decision Points

Within any visioning process certain transitions are arrived at which represent a milestone or critical juncture. These decision points may mark the end of a phase or the completion of a key activity, but commonly represent important opportunities to reach consensus on a vision product or outcome with partners and stakeholders. Decision points also provide important linkages to other processes, plans, or procedures. See the Visioning and Transportation section of this site for detailed descriptions of the importance, purpose, and linkages of these decision points.

Approve Indicators and Commitments: Implementation of a vision necessitates actions on a range of issues, may encompass many jurisdictions and regulatory agencies, and requires the continued involvement of many partners and stakeholders. Two critical tools for advancing implementation efforts include the application of indicators and the tracking of commitments. Reaching a point of consensus approval for either of these tools provides a framework for embarking, monitoring, measuring, communicating, and revisiting the outcomes of a visioning process.
