Strategic Map Key
The oval at the top of the Strategic Map represents the central challenge that ADHS faces over
the next three to five years. The focus of our strategic plan is to achieve targeted improvements
in public health outcomes.
The central challenge is supported by five strategic priorities. The strategic priorities define the
major efforts requiring attention and resources to meet our central challenge. The priorities are
listed on the Strategic Map as the column headings:
column A (Impact Arizona’s Winnable Battles), column
B (Integrate Physical and Behavioral Health Services),
column C (Promote and Protect Public Health and
Safety), column D (Strengthen Statewide Public Health
System) and column E (Maximize ADHS Effectiveness).
Each strategic priority is supported by five underlying
strategic objectives. The objectives outline key elements
of each priority and most are broad in nature so as to capture the commonality that exists across
many of our program areas. Each of the objectives have performance measures in order to track
Cross-Cutting Strategic Priorities
The wide rectangles across the bottom of the map are cross-cutting strategic priorities. Cross-
cutting strategic priorities are by definition:
foundational to the strategy
embedded in all other strategic priorities
For ADHS, the two foundational pieces do not require concerted resources, but are incorporated
into all that we do. Implementing best practices and aligning resources with key priorities are
woven across all divisions and go deep into each program area.
