Define the Results
The next step is to define the outcomes for each Result and the underlying assumptions and factors that influence the outcomes. Accurate prioritization requires a clear definition of the result such that the cause and effect relationship can be identified and reflected in the scoring process. The definitions should be clear, comprehensive, logical and measurable and identify the influences and factors that are most critical to the achievement of the Result.
The definitions and assumptions were developed by the City Council with feedback from the community.
