Strategic and Operational Plan Summary

Guided by California Rule of Court 10.1(c), the judicial branch develops its strategic plan at six-year intervals. The strategic plan describes the long-range goals for the state court system. The branch develops its operational plan at three-year intervals.

The operational plan sets forth specific objectives and desired outcomes for achieving the goals outlined in the strategic plan.

Both plans are developed through an inclusive and iterative process, and finalized with adoption by the Judicial Council. 

The goals, as set forth in the Strategic Plan for California’s Judicial Branch—adopted in 2006 and that will continue to frame the 2012-2015 operational plan—are:

  • Access, Fairness, and Diversity
  • Independence and Accountability
  • Modernization of Management and Administration
  • Quality of Justice and Service to the Public
  • Education for Branchwide Professional Excellence
  • Branchwide Infrastructure for Service Excellence

Operational Plan for California's Judicial Branch 2012-2015

Justice Douglas P. Miller photoThank you for participating in development of the Operational Plan for California’s Judicial Branch 2012-2015. This page will provide you information to assist you at this initial phase of developing that plan—looking at how best to prioritize and accomplish the branch’s work over the next 18-36 months. You will also have the opportunity to provide additional comments and perspectives on the process as we prepare for an in-person meeting in March. The ultimate goal is to develop a plan for the next three years that is focused, achievable, and reflects perspectives from numerous branch stakeholders. For this initial phase of the planning process, we are asking you to complete six distinct surveys—organized by goal—on the plan’s objectives. Your participation in this phase of the process is critical, and I thank you in advance for your contributions.

Justice Douglas P. Miller
Chair, Judicial Council Executive and Planning Committee
