We provide thoughtful planning and coordination for problem-solving courts to ensure best practices and the best possible outcomes.
There are more than 3,000 problem-solving courts nationwide, and some states have dozens, or even hundreds. As problem-solving courts continue to expand, it is increasingly important that states engage in thoughtful planning and coordination to ensure that these courts are adhering to best practices and achieving the best possible outcomes. We support states in these efforts by facilitating no-cost statewide strategic planning for problem-solving courts. Using our guided strategic planning process, states can develop statewide training programs, create performance standards, allocate resources more efficiently, and strengthen problem-solving court operations.
Our strategic planning process is flexible and can be adjusted to fit the needs of state court systems, state problem-solving court associations, or other organizations. The basic components of the process include a planning committee of key stakeholder agencies, a thorough needs assessment, an on-site strategic planning workshop, a documented strategic plan, and ongoing support.
