Strategy Management


It’s not enough to have a clearly defined mission and set of priorities. 

Managing an organization as large and complex as the FBI—and turning it into the intelligence-driven, threat-focused enterprise needed for the 21st century—requires a definitive strategy and plan for execution. That’s where our Strategy Management System, or SMS, comes in. SMS is a tool that enables Bureau leaders and managers to define and pursue objectives crucial to mission success, prioritize resources to achieve those objectives, track progress along the way, address gaps when identified, and most importantly, deliver consistent results. Learn more here
