Using DoView to plan a city or region

Planning for a city or region is complex

The rapid decent into document overload

  • City or regional plannin can rapidly end up with a large number of planning and related documents.
  • A request for a piece of information can often be responded to with: ‘you need to look on page 324 within the table inside the anex to the third set of planning documents’. 
  • There are overviews of course but they do not provide enough detail for serious planning, priortization, co-design and alignment work.

There is a faster way by using visual strategy diagrams

  • DoView Strategy Diagrams provide a way to get a helicopter plus drill-down view of what is being planning for a city or region.
  • It is then used for identifying outcomes; co-design with communities and stakeholders; priority setting; alignment between priorities and projects or activities; alignment in sector-wide planning to identify gaps and overlaps; identifying indicators; working out how to measure impact; and, ensuring alignment throught outcomes-focused contracting with external providers.  
  • The same DoView Strategy Diagram is then used to: communicate the vision; drive implementation; review progress; and, measure and communicate success.   
  • DoView Strategy Diagrams can be built in real-time in strategy, co-design and community consulation workshops using agile award-winning DoView strategy and outcomes software. 

An example

  • Below is an example of a DoView Strategy Diagram for a city. This one was used in the planning for the redevelopment of a city after an earthquake.  


Below is a poster version of the individual drill-down plages below the pink box in the poster above.
