The IETF Administration LLC began a consultation on its Draft Strategic Plan 2020 [1] on 4 May 2020 and in response to the issues raised so far [2], has developed a revised draft [3] with some substantial changes.  Consultation on this revised draft will continue until Monday 15 June 2020 and may be extended longer if required.

The strategic plan is made up of the following elements, all of which are being presented for comment:

1. Linkages.  The organisations and communities that the IETF LLC is linked to and how that linkage is the top-level driver of the IETF LLC strategy. 
2. Mission.  This is a literal definition of what the IETF LLC does.  The mission rarely changes in the lifetime of the company.
3. Values.  These define how the company behaves as it follows its mission. These may change over time to reflect broader social changes.
4. Strategic Goals.  The highest priority goals of the IETF LLC.  These may be short-, medium- or long-term goals or a mix.  These are the big picture of what the IETF LLC is aiming to do in the next 3-5 years and so are the key setting that the board expects the company to follow.
5. Strategic Transformations.  These detail the changes that need to be made in order to achieve the strategic goals.   Each transformation details the current state and the desired state to transform into. These transformations should be achievable within 1-3 years.

If you have any comments or questions then you can submit those by any of the following methods:

* Raising an issue on the Github repository
* Direct to me at
* Direct to the IETF LLC Board (not including me) at 
* To the list

Please rememeber to comment on the revised draft [3] not the original.
