    The Strategy Report

    This Report summarizes recommendations for means by which the Society might increase progress in development of the field. The report therefore considers the field as a whole, not solely the Society itself. The report’s scope is incomplete on some issues, but particularly so in regard to the consulting firms in the field and the providers of software and training services to the field. The actions required to implement the strategy are also incomplete, since they require input and support from those who might do so. The Policy Council is asked to accept the Report’s conclusions, recognizing that most of the recommendations imply initiatives and efforts to be taken by certain officers and groups in the Society. Acceptance of the Report does not imply acceptance of decisions that would normally need to be submitted for PC approval Policy Council (PC) – notably new expenditures, the appointment of new Vice Presidents and changes to the role of SIGs.
