Foursquare ITP has worked on a number of strategic plans for transportation agencies, including a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategic plan, a Strategic Highway Safety Plan, and a Business Plan for a Motor Vehicles Administration. The common denominator in all of these plans, and in most of our work, is the development of measurable objectives and associated performance measures or measures of effectiveness that can be used to track the progress and success of the plans. Through our strategic planning work, Foursquare ITP has extensive experience with facilitation of multi-disciplinary and diverse groups and can assist agencies with quantifying their objectives and ensuring that their plans are measurable and that progress can be tracked.
